Due to the tie for 10th place, the top 11 songs from last week's chart went through to this week's. It's interesting seeing the same three songs fight for that top spot week after week - it's almost as if you guys have it specifically organized to vote for them. And with that, Beach House ties the record for most weeks atop the chart with seven! Can they break the record? Only time will tell... One week of time, to be exact.

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"

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

This week I'm nominating the most gut-wrenching metal track I've ever heard: Disturbed - 'Save Our Last Goodbye'

and also (to lighten things up): The Arcs - 'Chains Of Love'

I'm gonna throw all the female vocalists pop this week:
Beach House - Leviathan (since Sparks will be out next week, one way or another)
Julia Holter - Sea Calls Me Home
Chromatics - Shadow
Empress Of - Standard

Seriously, they are all great. What an embarrassment of riches...

I'd like to nominate:
Ben Folds / yMusic - Capable of Anything

The flutes and arrangement reminds me of Illinois-era Sufjan. Very nice.
