Total Votes: 117

Congratulations to Joanna Newsom's "Leaving the City" for entering our Hall of Fame! Of course, with her leaving the chart as well, that means that the many, many songs that tied for 11th get to fight it out again. Some pros and cons with that result - interesting how with 117 votes, the highest total we've had on the chart on a while, you all still couldn't make up your minds! Who knows how the end of the year will turn out. Due to Newsom's automatic retirement from the chart, and the five-way tie for 11th, the top 14 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"

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

Side note: thank you to everyone who provided so many great nominations next week! I'm so sorry that, circumstantially, a lot of them didn't get chosen anyway :( but that doesn't mean that you can't nominate as many songs as you want to again!

Also, apologies to Rdwdbob and company, Jamie xx's "Obvs" barely falls out of our six-month deadline.

Wow! I keep nominating oldies but goodies that are out of contention so I'm pretty sure this one still qualifies: Chvrches - 'Playing Dead'

My nominations this week:
Black Honey - Corrine (such a fantastic song, the singer wrote it after having a fight with her close friend, resulting in her friend moved away thounsand miles from home, so this song was sort of confession to her friend)
Kate Boy - Lion for Real
The Ruben - The Night is On My Side

I also nominate Pusha T - "M.F.T.R."
"Hand-held dream, shot in hell... Deep-space ghetto I ain't seen before... I've seen footage, I'm so noided...," some of the greatest lyrics of all time
