Post by Setherex » Sun Jun 21, 2015 11:38 pm

Welcome to Week 25 of the AMF Chart! The chart where there are so many great nominations! It's nuts, I tell ya!

Here are your rankings for Week 24 (number of weeks on the chart so far in parentheses):
1. Sufjan Stevens - "Fourth of July" (7)
2. Tame Impala - "Eventually" (3)
3. Florence + The Machine - "Ship to Wreck" (1)
3. The Weeknd - "Can't Feel My Face" (1)

Total Votes: 104

The top 10 songs from last week's chart went through to this week's. I have to say, this is a very strong lineup of songs we have on the chart here. Each week is a definite battle for those few top 10 spots. 2015 isn't relenting a bit with its new releases too - so many nominations, so many good songs, so many songs eliminated in their prime.

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)

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

Apologies to everyone on two counts:

First, that I have been making the new poll topics a few hours late these past couple weeks. Life's been busy apparently.

Second, that so many noms have been going unrecognized! That's what happens when we're flooded with new voters and participants. No complaining from me, though - the more the merrier! :D Just keep the noms flowing. And don't forget to use the power of the seconding nomination to support those songs that otherwise would get buried in the rush.

I will try again with "Rundown (The Fire)" by With Lions, a new to me band, but a monster track.
And a second nomination if it hasn't already gone by "Teenage Talk" by St. Vincent. Old school Annie.

OK then ... why not inundate this weeks nominations with a few deep cuts from some recent albums that have gotten other track noms:

Father John Misty - 'The Night Josh Tillman Came To Our Apt.'

Best Coast - 'Sleep Won't Ever Come'

Alabama Shakes - 'Future People"

Brandon Flowers - 'Diggin' Up The Heart'

(all are in contention for my personal top 20 tracks of the year ... key word here being 'contention'. looking forward to what the rest of the year has to offer. :D )

That's exactly what I thought for a few weeks now. Sometimes the song was just nominated too early that it was unheard of by majority out there (hence the lack of vote for it) - I suspect that if Marry Me Archie was nominated right at a time it debut, it would not get pass 2 weeks. So I have a suggestion, each week we can do "second chance" with 1 song: the song that just stayed at most 2 weeks on the chart, yet we think it deserves second chance. Second that song would of course make it better chance to reappear on a chart.

Tell me what you guys think about the idea.

That's an interesting idea, tom! My concern, primarily, is that the repeating of previous songs on the playlist just gives less room for new new songs - of which we occasionally already have so many good ones of that it's disappointing to turn them down.

I'm very happy to re-introduce songs to the chart if they have enough support behind them. Perhaps if a former chart song received two/three seconding noms in the thread? Then there would be some very obvious support behind the track, and we know that it would get enough votes to at least be a contender in future weeks.

Let me know what you all think! In the mean time, this is your weekly reminder to get your votes, noms, and seconding of noms in before the new poll tomorrow (which should be made on time this week...). My noms:

Samantha Urbani - "U Know I Know"
Titus Andronicus - "Come On, Siobhan"
Kacey Musgraves - "Late to the Party"

I think re-introducing a song, if it had support, would be a brilliant idea. It encourages participation in the nomination and seconding of songs. I would be more likely to listen to, and second, a nomination if i knew this was possible.

It took me quite a while to realize what song you were talking about tom, haha. It's by Future, not by Common ;)
