Congratulations to Sharon Van Etten's "Your Love Is Killing Me" for entering our Hall of Fame! For those keeping track at home, that's the third Hall of Fame entry for Sharon, an accomplishment that should really earn her an AM medal or something. And with that, all of the 2014 entries to the chart have parted ways. When will a 2015 entry make the chart? In at least another four weeks, apparently. Due to Sharon Van Etten's retirement from the chart, the top 10 songs otherwise went through to this week's poll.

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)
4. Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me" (5) / Belle and Sebastian - "Nobody's Empire"
5. Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me" (6)
6. Belle and Sebastian - "Nobody's Empire" (2)
7. Björk - "Black Lake"

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)

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)
Alvvays - "Archie, Marry Me" (43-6)
Sharon Van Etten - "Your Love Is Killing Me" (44-7)

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 18-song Spotify chart (with 2 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 18:00 UTC as I can make it. Best of voting! :D

I'd like to nominate Rhiannon's 'FourFiveSeconds' (which happens to feature the infamous Yeezy and Macca ... ha!)

I have indeed noticed that on weeks with new MegaCritic charts, there are less nominations. Or maybe it's just a coincidence and you all just dip out twice a month - which is perfectly cool too.

My reminder to get your votes, nominations and seconding of nominations in before the new poll tomorrow! My nominations for the week:

Purity Ring - "Bodyache"
Death Cab for Cutie - "No Room in Frame"
Lindstrøm and Grace Hall – “Home Tonight"
