The top 10 songs from last week's chart went through to this week's. It seems commonplace recently for two songs to enter the chart while two simultaneously leave it. Keeps things flowing healthily overall, me thinks. Three potential Hall of Fame entries coming in the next two weeks. Let's see how they hold up...

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

Been busy lately and passive here for a while. Sorry about that, but should get more time now that winter is coming again.

I'd like to nominate "New Order featuring Iggy Pop" with "Stray Dog".

Same here. Two election campaigns have kept me occupied for the past six months. Just so this excuse can be somewhat "musical", a successful candidate in last nights' Canadian election was named TJ Harvey.

I will second New Orders' "Stray Dog."

Do I assume correctly that you had a nice Monday evening?

There is an internet meme circulating in Canada that we should have some sympathy for outgoing Prime Minister Stephen Harper. On Tuesday morning he woke up to Naheed Nenshi as his Mayor, Rachel Notley as his Premier and Justin Trudeau as his Prime Minister-elect. Tough day. :mrgreen:

But no, my local race was not a success on Monday.

Might I also point out that today is Back to the Future Day. If you see somebody who looks kinda like me, say Hello.

I've been looking for someone like that all day, to make sure the Grays Sports Almanac doesn't get thrown away!

On a similar note, it's touching that the Cubs tried to win the World Series this year.

Kinda bizarre that instead of winning the World Series on October 21, 2015 (as the movie suggested) the Cubs are eliminated from GOING to the Series. Some baseball traditions are tough to break (poor Cubbies).

On that note I'd like to nominate Elton John's - 'Looking Up'

I've been away from this board for a while. If it hasn't been picked already, I'd like to nominate
The Libertines - Glasgow Coma Scale Blues.

Thanks!

In a rush, but happy to see so many friendly faces back on the thread this week. The only thing missing are Henrik's euro centric pop selections :p

My nome for the week:
Charli XCX - "Vroom Vroom"
Merchandise - "Red Sun"
Snakehips - "All My Friends"

And second in Savages' "The Answer."
