The top 10 songs from last week's poll went through to this week's. If all goes well, it appears like next week will be the start of another Hall of Fame rally. Always good to get new entries, especially in such an abundantly ripe year. Speaking of which, Grimes' "REALiTi" has now tied the record set by Alvvays' "Archie, Marry Me" for six weeks atop the chart. And with two weeks left to go in its run, it looks like a record destined to be broken.

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"

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

For this week, I nominate again 2 songs from last week:
Cat's Eyes - The Duke of Burgundy (my favourite song at this moment)
Gengahr - She's a Witch

and 2 absolutely beautiful vocal:
Torres - Cowboy Guilt (sound so refreshing and addictive)
Nao - Apple Cherry (the sound reminds me of Megan James from Purity Ring and FKA Twigs, which is not a bad thing at all)

Can I just say "Fourth of July" is such a beautiful, melancholic, song. It and that latest Mad Men episode have had me on the verge of tears all week. I love the back and forth verses and the wonderful imagery throughout. Interestingly Sufjan refers to Carrie as a Dragonfly/Firefly and Carrie refers to Sufjan as three types of bird- Hawk, Dove and Loon. Not to mention her retort of calling him Versailles (truth, past and retrospect), which is completely opposite, both symbolically and literally, to the kind of building junior high represents (fiction, future and prediction).

I'm sorry Kanye, but Sufjan had the best featuring-as-his-mother song of 2015. You aren't the only one.

It's a bit pointless nominating songs in such a heavy MegaCritic week. But hey, no harm in trying. And if anyone wants to throw a seconding nomination my way... ;)

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

Jamie xx feat. Young Thug - "I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)"
A$AP Rocky feat. Rod Stewart, Miguel & Mark Ronson - "Everyday"
Sun Kil Moon - "Garden of Lavender"
