AMF Chart Week 10 2015

Post by Setherex » Sun Mar 08, 2015 7:12 pm

Welcome to Week 10 of the AMF Chart! The chart where it's Daylight Saving Time in (most parts of) the U.S.A., and I'm not entirely sure what time it is anymore. Oh well.

Total Votes: 84

The top 10 songs from last week's poll went on to this week's. No new picks this week, but not a big surprise considering how solid the selections are right now. We still have another two weeks before our first potential 2015 Hall of Famer as well. But, in the meantime, we're officially 10 weeks into the new year, which means we've finally gotten through the 2014 phase. Welcome to the new age, everyone.

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"
8. Björk - "Black Lake" (2)
9. Belle and Sebastian - "Nobody's Empire" (3) / Björk - "Black Lake" (3)

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 UTC as I can make it. Best of voting! :D

I'd like to second the nomination for "REALiTi" by Grimes and throw in a new one for my favorite song of the year so far, "Sunday Shoes" by Lady Lamb the Beekeeper. Brought me to the brink of tears today, incredible.

I must say Carly Rae Jepsen remains an entity that I don’t seem to get. I wasn’t even a fan of “Call Me Maybe.” (Although I did like it better than this one—at least it had those unique synths.) What baffles me is that I’m one of the major mainstream music lovers on the forum, so you’d think I’d be able to appreciate her catchy pop songs more. Since it appears that many seem to really, really like her, it must be me who’s missing something…

Tame Impala is as Seth-core as it gets nowadays :D

My day before reminder to get your votes, nominations, and seconding of nominations in before the new poll tomorrow. This week is also a MegaCritic week, so note that nominations will likely be limited!

My picks for the week:
Sufjan Stevens - "Should Have Known Better"
Girlpool - "Ideal World"
Hop Along - "Waitress"
