On future polls, just for my sake so I don't get confused (I'm easily confused), can you list artist first, song second for all the nominated songs?

I'm sorry for that!!! I'll try to correct it, if I can.

Edit: It is corrected. I'm sorry, once again.

John Butler Trio-Flesh and Blood dropped this week. "Only One" is the song I nominate.

Along with Cloud Nothings-I'm not Part of Me

EDIT: "Cannibal" the new one from the Silversun Pickups is amazing. Their last album was a bit of a disappointment, but this one rocks! Nom in.

Even though I am not a big jazz fan, I just came across this track which I would like to nominate:

Kapok - Day Of The Tentacle
(see also http://www.kapokmusic.com/)

You think its over after about 2 minutes, but it is worthwhile to keep listening ...

Are new songs only from submissions now? Or do we always include at least a couple from the Mega Critic chart?

This song from Broken Bells has been going through my mind all day ... it sounds like Robbie Williams (hope he doesn't read this and gets the idea of covering it) and it sounds more like a guilty pleasure, but hell, it sticks like two-component glue.

Songs from the Megacritic Chart are always included, but only in weeks that a new update of the chart is released. Since the MC Chart is only updated twice a month, there will be weeks with only user's nominations as new songs for voting on the AMF Chart.

I'm really looking forward to the Quilt album. Digital Witness may become my favourite St. Vincent song.

If possible (depending on the Megacritic Chart) I would love to nominate Villagers - Occupy Your Mind :)

perfect - I was hoping we'd keep a mix of the two. Thanks guigs!
