AMF Chart Week 31 2014

Postby Setherex » Sun Sep 07, 2014 7:00 pm

Welcome to Week 31 of the AMF Chart! The chart where we had four new songs go onto the chart this week! That's crazy!

Here are your rankings for Week 30 (number of weeks on the chart so far in parentheses):
1. alt-J - "Every Other Freckle" (1)
2. Interpol - "All the Rage Back Home" (6)
3. Spoon - "Do You" (9)
4. The Bug feat. Liz Harris - "Void" (1)
5. Röyksopp & Robyn - "Every Little Thing" (4)
6. La Roux - "Uptight Downtown" (5)
7. Ty Segall - "Tall Man, Skinny Lady" (1)
8. Sun Kil Moon - "Micheline" (3)
9. Foxygen - "How Can You Really" (4)
10. Grumbling Fur feat. Tim Burgess - "Lightinsisters" (1)
11. Allo Darlin' - "Romance and Adventure" (2)
12. Spoon - "They Want My Soul" (3)
13. Perfume Genius - "Queen" (4)
13. Slow Club - "Not Mine to Love" (4)
15. Cymbals Eat Guitars - "Jackson" (1)
15. How to Dress Well - "Repeat Pleasure" (1)
15. The New Pornographers - "War on the East Coast" (1)
15. Pallbearer - "The Ghost I Used to Be" (1)
19. Opeth - "Moon Above, So Below" (1)
19. Pedrina y Rio - "Enamorada" (1)

The top 10 songs went on to this week. I may be wrong, but I don't believe we've had four new songs go through in one week since the earliest days of the chart. How exciting! But of course, that stops the trip for four other fan favorites. Easy come easy go, I suppose. But I love the eclectic nominations being made by everyone. Who knew we'd see a new Aphex Twin, Leonard Cohen and Pharmakon song enter the chart on the same week!

2014 Chart-Toppers by Week (counting tie votes; number of weeks atop chart total in parentheses):
1. Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra - "Fuck Off Get Free (For the Island of Montreal)"
2. Damien Jurado - "Silver Timothy" / Warpaint - "Love Is to Die"
3. Warpaint - "Love Is to Die" (2)
4. Damien Jurado - "Silver Timothy" (2)
5. Young Fathers - "Get Up"
6. St. Vincent - "Digital Witness" / Warpaint - "Love Is to Die" (3)
7. Sun Kil Moon - "Richard Ramirez Died Today of Natural Causes" / Warpaint - "Love Is to Die" (4)
8. The War on Drugs - "Red Eyes" / Warpaint - "Love Is to Die" (5)

Not really an album of singles, but I'll propose Imogen Heap's "The Beast" for next week. And as a second choice Esben and the Witch's "Dig Your Fingers In".

I've been a member for a bit but only discovered this song poll recently. Seems like fun!

I'll nominate Robert Plant - "Rainbow" if it hasn't been on here already.

If we're not to be afraid with nominations, I'd also add The Bad Plus - "Adopted Highway" to the list.

That Pharmakon song scared the hell out of me. (So, of course, I had to vote for it.)

This was an especially strong week for new nominees. I voted for four of them, which is a personal high.
