Welcome to Week 33 of the AMF Chart! The chart where Dr. Dre's Apple Music-exclusive album makes my job a lot harder.

1. Beach House - "Sparks" (6)
2. Julia Holter - "Feel You" (5)
3. Beck - "Dreams" (8)

Total Votes: 87

Due to the tie for 10th place, the top 13 songs from last week's chart went through to this week's. Always happy to accept a handful of new participants to the poll, but when it's due to a four-way tie, it becomes a little difficult to balance with the incoming nominees to make everyone happy. Such is the way of the poll, I suppose. A couple weeks of potential Hall of Famers incoming!

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)

10. Sufjan Stevens - "No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross"

Here is this week's 15-song Spotify chart (with 3 songs included below via YouTube link):


Beach House's "Beyond Love" can be heard here. Select "Other People," "The Hours" and "Troublemaker" as your songs.

Dr. Dre's "Genocide" can be heard on Apple Music.
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

And just as a note to everyone - I can't find direct links to a listenable version of Dr. Dre's "Genocide" or Beach House's "Beyond Love." The former is available for purchase on Apple Music, and the latter is available for stream through a strange interactive method on the band's website. But if anyone has easier ideas, please let me know!

Tltshft-Isolate

Pretty apparent they wanted this to be the hit off their EP.
