Congratulations to Father John Misty's "I Love You, Honeybear" for making it into the Hall of Fame! I personally find it very interesting that this song seems to universally be everyone's favorite off FJM's album of the same name, as I find so many other songs just as if not more creative and enthralling. But hey, the voters are always right, right? Otherwise, I also don't recall the last time we had a week where every song received at least one vote. Sharing the wealth is always a great thing! Especially if it keeps my self-esteem up knowing that someone liked my submissions, haha. Due to Father John Misty's retirement from the chart and the tie for 10th place, the top 10 songs otherwise went through to 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)
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)
14. Kendrick Lamar - "King Kunta" (2)
15. Kendrick Lamar - "King Kunta" (3)
16. Grimes - "REALiTi" (4)

2015 Hall of Fame (10 weeks of advancing votes; automatically retired from chart):
Björk - "Black Lake" (Weeks 4 - 13)
Courtney Barnett - "Pedestrian at Best" (Weeks 5 - 14)
Father John Misty - "I Love You, Honeybear" (Weeks 7 - 16)

Here is this week's 17-song Spotify chart (with 3 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

Couple of really, really cool tracks that I've discovered this week (and would like to nominate, of course):

Built To Spill - 'C.R.E.B.' (Crazy Horse-style rhythm and Pete Townsend-style licks)

Wolf Alice - 'Bros' (sugary sweet pretty vocals against crunchy guitars and punchy percussion - addictive)

Woah! That's actually fairly fascinating considering that "Bros" and "Fluffy" were both demos the band released in 2013 and that I fell in love with back when. I'll allow the nomination for "Bros," though, because it appears that they re-released it as a single to build traction for their upcoming album. Similar to what Alvvays did last year, I believe.

Though this isn't an endorsement - if anyone would like to second Rdwdbob's nomination, or any songs they see fit, please be my guest ;)

I was going to nominate another song by Shakes, but I'll second this one instead.

Jill Scott - You Don't Know
They give awards for that music? I thought just ear plugs. (Woody Allen in Annie Hall)

I'm not sure how your songs' reviews will be like but I'm looking forward to it. :D

This week, I'll add:
Jenny Hval - Sabbath
Gengahr - She's a Witch (my favorite song atm)
Soak - Sea Creatures (a sweet indie song)

I also second Janelle Monae & Jidenna - "Yoga"

I do too, really :( But ideally I'll get to it next week. Though I wish I could guarantee myself a bit of time. I will say however, that for the most part, I've enjoyed this week's new selections. A diverse group with a lot of emotion behind it.

This also serves as (surprise) my weekly reminder to get your votes, nominations, and seconding of nominations in before the new poll tomorrow. Noting, of course, that this is also a MegaCritic Chart week.

My nominations for the week:
Titus Andronicus - "Dimed Out"
Kehlani - "The Letter"
Brandon Flowers - "Lonely Town"
