Total Votes: 100

Big things! Congratulations to Sufjan Stevens' "Fourth of July" and Alabama Shakes' "Gimme All Your Love" for both making it into our Hall of Fame! The former seemed to be a shoo-in from the first week, but the latter I have to say I'm a bit surprised about. Better songs have come and gone. Both very worthy entries, however. Due to both songs' automatic retirement from the chart, 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)

20. Grimes - "REALiTi" (7)
21. Kendrick Lamar - "King Kunta" (5) / Sufjan Stevens - "Fourth of July"
22. Sufjan Stevens - "Fourth of July" (2) / Tame Impala - "Eventually"
23. Sufjan Stevens - "Fourth of July" (3) / Tame Impala - "Eventually" (2)
24. Sufjan Stevens - "Fourth of July" (4)
25. Florence + The Machine - "Ship to Wreck" / Sufjan Stevens - "Fourth of July" (5) / Tame Impala - "Eventually" (3)

Courtney Barnett - "Pedestrian at Best" (Weeks 5 - 14)

Sufjan Stevens - "Fourth of July" (Weeks 18 - 27)

Here is this week's 17-song Spotify chart (with 1 song included below via external link, and 2 songs via YouTube link):


Blood Orange - "Do You See My Blood Through the Flames?"
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

Have been listening Sparks - Late for the Party - Should Have Known Better (in that order!) in loop since last week. These are such a powerful combo.

Anyway, this week I choose:
Youth Lagoon - The Knower
Eagle of Death Metal - Complexity

^ I believe it's already been nominated, which was sad as it took a while for me to fall in love with the song and it's one of my favorites of the year.

It hasn't, actually! Feel free to support it with a seconding nom and such.

That goes for everyone's noms - It's a fairly stacked MegaCritic week all around ;)
