The top 10 songs from last week's chart went through to this week's. Some shifts going around as three new songs enter the fray. And, of course, our first potential batch of 2016 Hall of Famers are coming in hot. We'll have to wait another four weeks for their possibly official coronation. But a lot can happen in four weeks time...

1. David Bowie - "Blackstar" (2)
2. David Bowie - "Blackstar" (3)
3. David Bowie - "Blackstar" (4)
4. David Bowie - "Blackstar" (5)
5. PJ Harvey - "The Wheel"
6. PJ Harvey - "The Wheel" (2)
7. PJ Harvey - "The Wheel" (3)

2015 Hall of Fame (10 weeks of advancing votes; automatically retired from chart):
Björk - "Black Lake" (Weeks 4 - 13)
Courtney Barnett - "Pedestrian at Best" (Weeks 5 - 14)
Father John Misty - "I Love You, Honeybear" (Weeks 7 - 16)
Sufjan Stevens - "No Shade in the Shadow of the Cross" (Weeks 8 - 17)
Courtney Barnett - "Depreston" (Weeks 10 - 19)
Grimes - "REALiTi" (Demo) (Weeks 11 - 20)

Tame Impala - "Eventually" (Weeks 22 - 31)
Florence + The Machine - "Ship to Wreck" (Weeks 24 - 33)
Beck - "Dreams" (Weeks 25 - 34)
Beach House - "Sparks" (Weeks 27 - 36)
Julia Holter - "Feel You" (Weeks 28 - 37)
CHVRCHES - "Leave a Trace" (Weeks 29 - 38)

Joanna Newsom - "Leaving the City" (Weeks 39 - 48)
Julia Holter - "Silhouette" (Weeks 40 - 49)
Beach House - "Elegy to the Void" (Weeks 44 - 1)
Grimes - "Flesh Without Blood" (Weeks 44 - 1)
Grimes - "California" (Weeks 46 - 3)
Grimes - "Kill V. Maim" (Weeks 46 - 3)
Carly Rae Jepsen - "Run Away with Me" (Weeks 47 - 4)
David Bowie - "Blackstar" (Weeks 47 - 4)

Songs that entered the chart in 2015 will be added to the 2015 Hall of Fame, rather than the 2016 Hall of Fame.

Here is this week's 15-song Spotify chart (with 2 songs included below via YouTube link, and 3 via external link):


Kanye West - "Ultralight Beam" (streaming on Tidal)

Lucinda Williams - "Death Came" (from 22:47 to 29:00)

Prince - "Big City" (streaming on Tidal)




Here is your 2016 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 20:00 UTC as I can make it. Best of voting! :D

I second that

Apologies Johnny and luvulong - but since the last nomination came in after the 20:00 UTC deadline, I'm going to have to not push through the School of Seven Bells nomination. Of course, if yourselves or anyone else were interested in trying to get it pushed to the chart again, I wouldn't be opposed to it.

The additional four votes made on last week's chart will also have to be ignored, partially because it would just be more work for me to change the results above. Plus, the 10 songs that went through would be the same regardless.

I'd like to re-nominate Rihanna's Kiss It Better since it is now on YouTube and Spotify! It's such a good pop song.

You got to be fast now with your nominations...
Discovered this one through Spotify discoveries, and it's a gem :

Salad Boys - No Taste Bomber.

If you like the Old NZ Wave (Bats / The Clean / Chug and countless more), this will be right up your alley.

Is there a rule that to include only x songs from MegaCritic each week? In that case it would make sense, but I have forgotten about such a rule. The new albums by Chairlift and Animal Collective made the MegaCritic chart but don't have any songs here.

Thanks Setherex for running this over a really long time now!!! Still enjoying it?

I am indeed! Thanks for letting me keep the job, haha :)

Around this time last year I suggested we adjust the MegaCritic rules a slight bit - if an album already had one or more of its three "top song" selections entered into the chart, it wouldn't be considered as an automatic first nominee, but rather a nominee after everyone got one vote first.

People seemed to like the idea. So since AC had "FloriDada" on the chart already, and Chairlift had "Ch-Ching," they were treated as "second nominations," of which we didn't have space for.

I was afraid that the answer would show that I haven't paid enough attention to this chart. :? Anyway, it's a great rule. Also, plenty of good songs to choose from this week!

I second this nomination. Great song, actually made it to my favorite 100 songs of 2015!

And remember Jon Allen with Night & Day? Yes, made it to the Hall of Fame back in 2014.
My 2nd nomination is a song that reminds me of that song, hope you like it too:
Dylan LeBlanc - Look How Far We've Come
