AMF Chart Week 29 2014

Postby Setherex » Sun Aug 24, 2014 7:00 pm

Welcome to Week 29 of the AMF Chart! The chart where the Hall of Fame train makes one more stop as the rally finally finishes.

Here are your rankings for Week 28 (number of weeks on the chart so far in parentheses):
1. Sun Kil Moon - "Micheline" (1)
2. Interpol - "All the Rage Back Home" (4)
3. First Aid Kit - "My Silver Lining" (10)
4. FKA Twigs - "Pendulum" (1)
5. Röyksopp & Robyn - "Every Little Thing" (2)
6. La Roux - "Uptight Downtown" (3)
7. Spoon - "Do You" (7)
8. Spoon - "They Want My Soul" (1)
9. Foxygen - "How Can You Really" (2)
9. Perfume Genius - "Queen" (2)
9. Slow Club - "Not Mine to Love" (2)
12. Jack White - "Lazaretto" (9)
13. Sivert Høyem - "Inner Vision"(2)
13. Weezer - "Back to the Shack" (2)
15. The War on Drugs - "Suffering" (4)
16. Fink - "Looking Too Closely" (1)
16. Ian William Craig - "The Edges" (1)
16. King Creosote - "For One Night Only" (1)
19. Lana Del Rey - "Old Money"(3)
20. Black Prairie - "If I Knew You Then" (1)

Congratulations to First Aid Kit's "My Silver Lining" for entering our Hall of Fame! The fifth song in a row to reach our pinnacle achievement. Unfortunately, Jack White was just edged out of the vote on its 9th week. The Hall of Fame train has to end somewhere, I suppose. With "My Silver Lining's" retirement, the top 10 songs otherwise continued on to this week.

6. St. Vincent - "Digital Witness" / Warpaint - "Love Is to Die" (3)

Can someone tell me what's good about "How Can You Really"? To me, it sounds like background piano chords and a couple of girls who sing karaoke out of sync. That's not usually a good thing.
Everyone you meet fights a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.

A last reminder for nominations and votes before tomorrow's new poll. I may also begin nominating songs myself beginning next week, something that I've been abstaining from so far. The September season keeps the new music a ringin' ;)

Yes, it is mysterious. And I also understand that the pendulum does not move anymore.

And btw, I love this song, maybe the same reason why you hate this... not really sure. But I feel warm whenever I listen to it
