AMF Chart Week 3 2015

Post by Setherex » Sun Jan 18, 2015 8:55 pm

Welcome to Week 3 of the AMF Chart! The chart where it's 2015!! See?! I didn't get it wrong this time :mrgreen:

Here are your rankings for Week 2 (number of weeks on the chart so far in parentheses):
1. Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me" (6)
2. Belle and Sebastian - "Nobody's Empire" (1)
3. Laura Marling - "Short Movie" (2)
4. Sharon Van Etten - "Your Love Is Killing Me" (5)
5. Sharon Van Etten - "Every Time the Sun Comes Up" (9)
6. Allah-Las - "Ferus Gallery" (2)
6. Kanye West feat. Paul McCartney - "Only One" (2)
8. Viet Cong - "Silhouettes" (1)
9. Grimes feat. Blood Diamonds - "Go" (3)
10. The Decemberists - "Lake Song" (4)
11. alt-J - "Left Hand Free" (9)
12. Lowell - "The Bells" (1)
13. Allah-Las - "Buffalo Nickel" (1)
13. Damien Jurado - "Ohio (Filous Remix)" (1)
15. Metronomy - "Love Letters" (4)
16. Charli XCX - "London Queen" (1)
16. Jonathan Wilson - "Slide By" (1)
16. Ryler Walker - "Primrose Green" (1)
16. Vacationer - "Stay" (1)
20. Chastity Belt - "Time to Go Home" (1)
Total Votes: 86

The top 10 songs from last week's chart moved on to this week's. Not much sway in the top 10, with only two exiting this week. Though one of those was alt-J, unfortunately claimed by the rule of weeks. We haven't had a new Hall of Fame entry in ages, so that's definitely a shame, but still nice that one song will (hopefully I don't jinx it) finally make it into the Hall next week.

2015 Chart-Toppers by Week (by vote count, not chart position; total weeks atop chart in parentheses):
1. Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me" (2) / Kanye West feat. Paul McCartney - "Only One"
2. Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me" (3)

2014 Hall of Fame (10 weeks of advancing votes; automatically retired from chart):
St. Vincent - "Digital Witness" (Week 1-14)
Warpaint - "Love Is to Die" (Week 1-11)
Sun Kil Moon - "Richard Ramirez Died Today of Natural Causes" (Week 2-14)
tUnE-yArDs - "Water Fountain" (Week 9-18)
Future Islands - "Seasons (Waiting on You)" (Week 10-19)
The War on Drugs - "Under the Pressure" (Week 10-19)
Lana Del Rey - "West Coast" (Week 15-24)
The Black Keys - "Weight of Love" (Week 16-25)
Owen Pallett - "The Riverbed" (Week 17-26)
Jon Allen - "Night and Day" (Week 18-27)
First Aid Kit - "My Silver Lining" (Week 19-28)
Spoon - "Do You" (Week 22-31)
Interpol - "All the Rage Back Home" (Week 25-34)
Röyksopp & Robyn - "Every Little Thing" (Week 27-36)
Sun Kil Moon - "Micheline" (Week 28-37)
Leonard Cohen - "Almost Like the Blues" (Week 31-40)
Sharon Van Etten - "Our Love" (Week 31-40)
Spoon - "Outlier" (33-42)

Songs that entered the chart in 2014 will be added to the 2014 Hall of Fame, rather than the 2015 Hall of Fame.

Here is this week's 17-song Spotify chart (with 2 songs included below via YouTube link, and 1 via external link):


Natalie Prass - "My Baby Don't Understand Me"
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

You're the man! :music-rockon:

Technically speaking, after this week we would have had 50 (!) weeks of AMF chart and this would call for another update from my side. I propose to not do that, but instead wait until all the lights of the 2014 AMF chart songs have faded out and then post a proper 2014 closure. And instead of a long list, I might as well upload the Excel file with more details. Any objections?

After the the disappointing run of 'Left Hand Free', (How the heck did it NOT make the Hall of Fame?! :x ), let's try Alt-J's 'Nara' and see how that one fares.

Also before time runs out on the excellent Jenny Lewis album I'd like to nominate 'She's Not Me'. :D

I'd like to second acroamor's nomination for 'Coyotes'. Great track ... great video ... but I'm thinking the adorable coyote was not pacing the deer statues affectionately at the end ... alas ... such is the circle of life ....

Second nomination for that Giorgio Moroder nomination. I predict that it will be a HUGE hit.

And I'll throw in another (if we need it): Betty Who - 'Runaways'
