Next week, we kick off what you might call the third season of Weekly5. You're in for a total of 30 regular editions and several fresh specials and reLISTENs, the format with five "older" songs to discover.

Since there won't be a regular curation on Sunday, I thought I'll shorten the waiting with a short special with five songs that I discovered in 2022 but haven't made it to one of the editions since they are a bit older or were cut from the shortlists.

However, the following five tracks all have an exhilarating energy that is perfect to kickstart the new year.
