AMF Chart Week 1 2015

Post by Setherex » Sun Jan 04, 2015 8:04 pm

Welcome to Week 1 of the AMF Chart! The chart where the new year beckons, and we get to start the whole routine over again! Weeeeeeeeeeeee!

Here are your rankings for Week 47 (number of weeks on the chart so far in parentheses):
1. D'Angelo and The Vanguard - "Sugah Daddy" (2)
2. Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me" (4)
2. Run the Jewels feat. Zack de la Rocha - "Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)" (4)

4. Sharon Van Etten - "Every Time the Sun Comes Up" (7)
6. Grimes feat. Blood Diamonds - "Go" (1)

Total Votes: 87

The top 10 songs from last week's chart moved on to this week's. I pretty much forgot the feeling of having Sharon Van Etten not at the top of the chart, so to see three songs all tied for first is pretty jarring. We are halfway through the decade now after all, I guess it's time for a bit of change... Here's to new beginnings!

All Dogs - "Georgia"

Kanye West feat. Paul McCartney - "Only One"
Here is your 2015 AMF Chart playlist of all songs on the chart so far this year:


Thank you all for voting and nominating continuously every week! Please don't be afraid to supply us with nominations - all songs six months old and younger (or who have received promotion via album/video/single in the last six months) are accepted! And seconding nominations by others' gives those songs a better chance at making the next poll!

As per usual, the next poll will be created as close to Sunday at 19:00 GMT as I can make it. Best of voting! :D

Couple things. As I noted in the original post, I'll be including all songs that achieve 10 consecutive weeks of advancing votes on the chart in the Hall of Fame of their entering year - so for the next 9 weeks, all songs that make the Hall of Fame will be included in the 2014 Hall of Fame. The 10th week, I will introduce the 2015 Hall of Fame.

Also, although I expressed interest in an earlier post about doing a 2014 "best of" poll, I don't exactly have a plan for doing so at the moment. If anyone has an interest in something of that nature, and has a proposal for how we could hold it within the next week-ish, please tell me! I'm open to ideas.

Otherwise, per Henrik's suggestion, I think we will have a poll to decide some key features to the AMF Chart in the near future. But not this very second... I'm tired and want to go get food :whistle:

Please continue with all your votes, nominations, seconding nominations, and most importantly, commentary on the chart. It's been wonderful doing this chart with you all for the last (amended) year, and I hope to continue it as long as I am able :D

P.S. A side question - does anyone know the record we've had for votes in a single week? 87 seems like it would be around that number. Andre, perhaps?

Hi Setherex,

thank you for moderating this chart this far. You are doing a more than excellent job and hopefully you will keep doing that also in 2015, 2016, ...! :music-rockon:

For me, it would be ok if we just continue the chart without any 2014 "best of" poll. I don't see a need to do that...

To your side question: In the past 47 weeks 101 was the highest number of votes per week, 52 the lowest and about 80 the average ... (and 11,1 the standard deviation, this for the stats nerds among us ;) ).

Here are the top 5 weeks with most and least votes:
1. weeks 14 and 17: 101 votes
3. week 10: 99 votes
4. week 2: 98 votes
5. week 4: 97 votes

1. week 33: 52 votes
2. week 20: 61 votes
3. weeks 23 and 46: 62 votes
5. weeks 8 and 35: 67 votes

My first nomination for next week: Belle And Sebastian - Nobody's Empire

And not as brilliant as "Silver Timothy" (one of the 2014 highlights for me), but still quite nice to nominate as second song for upcoming week: Damien Jurado - Ohio (Filous Remix)

OK, might as well do a third nomination:
Jonathan Wilson - Slide By
