Congratulations to Joanna Newsom's "Sapokanikan" for making our Hall of Fame! An abstract piece of chamber pop majesty if there ever was one. I'd put my money on it not being Newsom's last entry into our Hall this year as well, but I won't count my chickens quite too early. In other news, a huge tie across the board for 9th place means that we have a large re-entering batch this week. But I can't complain all too much - we've bounced back from our recently low voter count with a strong and proud 93 :D Due to the ties for 9th, as well as Newsom's automatically retirement from the chart, the top 13 songs otherwise went through to this week's chart.

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

With my 1000th post, I was going to review Die Mensch Maschine, but I couldn't think of a thing to say about it that Henrik wouldn't have banned me for.

So instead, I'll just nominate Tindersticks' "We Are Dreamers".
