Top 30 Songs for May 1-7, 2022

Harry Styles‘ delightful synthpop song “As It Was” takes over the top spot on my latest Weekly Top 30. Though I was not a fan of the boy band One Direction, I think that most of its members are pretty talented singers in their own right. That said, Harry Styles stands head and shoulders above the rest, and I’ve really liked a lot of his music as a solo artist. “As It Was” is the lead single from his forthcoming album Harry’s House, to be released on May 20.

In other chart highlights, entering the top 10 are Florence + the Machine‘s gorgeous “My Love”, which climbs five spots to #6, and Brandi Carlisle‘s haunting “Broken Horses”, which moves up four notches to #8. Two songs make their debut this week: “Synchronize” by German duo Milky Chance, and “That’s Where I Am” by the amazing American singer-songwriter Maggie Rogers.

  1. While the Milky Chance and Maggie Rogers songs aren’t in my core wheelhouse, I have to admit they are pretty catchy – the latter more so than the former, at least to my ears!

    It’s also nice seeing a German act making your list. I had never heard of Milky Chance. Based on Wikipedia, it looks like they enjoyed some previous chart success in the U.S., especially with the debut album from October 2013, which climbed to no. 17 on the Billboard 200.
