Total Votes: 102

Congratulations to Björk's "Black Lake" for making it into the Hall of Fame - the first entry for 2015! A well-deserving one, too, among such fierce competition. The biggest names of the year so far, including Father John Misty, Courtney Barnett and Sufjan Stevens, all have potential entries in the coming weeks as well. Let's see if they can make their way to the pantheon. Because of Björk'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"
8. Björk - "Black Lake" (2)
9. Belle and Sebastian - "Nobody's Empire" (3) / Björk - "Black Lake" (3)
10. Sufjan Stevens - "No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross"
11. Grimes - "REALiTi"
12. Grimes - "REALiTi" (2)
13. Grimes - "REALiTi" (3) / Kendrick Lamar - "King Kunta" / Sufjan Stevens - "No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross" (2)

2015 Hall of Fame (10 weeks of advancing votes; automatically retired from chart):
Björk - "Black Lake" (Weeks 4 - 13)

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 19:00 UTC as I can make it. Best of voting! :D

I will try to update the Excel file with all the AMF chart votes as often as possible. Here is the new one.

As "nominator" of the song, I am of course very happy that Björk is the first entry into the 2015 Hall of Fame! And I am double happy, because the 11th place, The White Birch, also went through to the next week. Thank you, Docbrown, for that nice discovery!

A few records have been broken last week:
- never before did we have 3 songs with 10 or more votes
- Alvvays already managed to score 10 or more votes for 3 weeks in a row, but Grimes does it from scratch
- never before did we have 4 (!) songs with 0 votes

Congrats to Black Lake!

I nominate Rain Or Shine by Young Fathers. And if there is space (or someone wants to second it) I also would like to nominate False Hope by Laura Marling

The one benefit of recent Spotify updates, they notify you of duplicates in your playlist. Fortunate for us because I didn't catch it, haha!

That particular song already appeared in the chart a couple weeks earlier, Doc. Apologies!
