Okay, it's high time for nominating some new stuff.

First of all, this song I've heard 5 times now and it rocks, really hopes it gets far in this chart:
1. Johnny Marr - Easy Money

Then a song from my favourite genre, jangle pop:
2. Allo Darlin' - Romance And Adventure

And finally an instrumental electronic song. RYM calls it "library music":
3. Pye Corner Audio - Black Mist (Long Version)

Setherex, I don't think "Seasons" made the Hall of Fame, although it was as close as it can possibly get. It came 11th in the 10th week! :?

And not to get picky, but the War On Drugs song is "Under The Pressure" not "Under Pressure" (that one makes me think of Vanilla Ice).

It did indeed - but due to The War on Drugs also advancing that week, Future Islands would have made it to an 11th week of voting, and had to be retired anyway. It's a strange technicality, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt in that case.

Essentially, then, the Hall of Fame criteria would be songs that received 10 weeks of advancing votes. Though I'm all for changing the rule if the population disagrees :whistle:

Ah, I never thought of that. I like the 10 weeks of advancing votes. When there's doubt, it's better to use the favorable rule.

You did nothing wrong, spider! Unfortunately, though, "Little Fang" has already been in the poll, and got quickly eliminated. Shame too, I'm a big fan :/

It's hard to keep track of what songs have been nom'd before, but you can scan the 2014 Songs Spotify playlist in the title post for most of the them. If you find anything else to nominate in the coming weeks, please feel free :)
