Total Votes: 87

Congratulations to Sharon Van Etten's "Every Time the Sun Comes Up" for making our (2014) Hall of Fame! And while another Sharon Van Etten track was running the charts, too, that's an impressive feat. There are still three 2014 tracks left in the competition, so let's see if any of them will make the long run to cool retirement in the coming weeks. After 10 consecutive weeks of advancing votes, "Every Time the Sun Comes Up" will be retired, and the top 10 songs otherwise advanced onto this week's chart.

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)
3. Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me" (4)

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)
Sharon Van Etten - "Every Time the Sun Comes Up" (41-4)

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 16-song Spotify chart (with 4 songs included below via YouTube link):

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

113 votes so far! That there is a healthy number if I do say so myself.

A conundrum I present to you all. By current AMF rules, next week's chart should just be MegaCritic chart selections, because there are 10 new ones. However, that seems a bit like a hectic affair, so I'm considering splitting those 10 chart selections into the next two weeks (five each). I haven't settled on this yet, so if none of your nominations make it in next week, please don't blame me, but what do you guys think? Fair? Should we still be supporting the chart with every MegaCritic top song pick that comes out of OtisRedding's chart, since the nominating process has become fairly reliable recently?

Regardless, I'll still drop in some nominations in case. Seconding (or thirding, as it were) Courtney Barnett's "Pedestrian at Best." Throwing in:
Girlpool - "Chinatown"
Colleen Green - "TV"
Torres - "Strange Hellos"

Also, having difficulties finding an online stream of Bjork's "Black Lake," if anyone has a suggestion.

May I suggest, for this week only, that we acknowledge that nominators have already anticipated one half of the new MCCh list, and call Bjork, Sleater-Kinney, Natalie Prass, Viet Cong and Belle & Sebastian pre-existing, pre-emptive chart favourites. Otherwise, we are flooding the charts with duplicate entries of artists that are all moving on.

Also, I will second your nomination of Torres (new album out May 5, Sprinter, my most anticipated release of the year)
