Post by Setherex » Sun Apr 17, 2016 7:08 pm

Welcome to Week 15 of the AMF Chart! The chart where our voting trends are becoming a tad predictable.

Here are your rankings for Week 15 (number of weeks on the chart so far in parentheses):
1. Grimes feat. Janelle Monáe - "Venus Fly" (1)
2. Courtney Barnett - "Three Packs a Day" (9)
3. Iggy Pop - "Gardenia" (2)
4. PJ Harvey - "The Community of Hope" (5)
5. Kanye West - "Ultralight Beam" (8)
6. ANOHNI - "Drone Bomb Me" (4)
7. M83 - "Do It, Try It" (5)
8. Kendrick Lamar - "untitled 07 2014 - 2016" (1)
9. Massive Attack feat. Young Fathers - "Voodoo in My Blood" (2)

Total Votes: 121

The top 10 songs from last week's Chart went through to this week's. As if by fate itself, Grimes tops the Chart in her first week with a new song entry. Can she break records again by becoming the first artist with six songs in the Hall of Fame? Yeah, probably. But time will answer that question for us.

2016 Chart-Toppers by Week (by vote count, not chart position; total weeks atop chart in parentheses):
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)
8. David Bowie - "Lazarus"
9. David Bowie - "Lazarus" (2)
10. PJ Harvey - "The Wheel" (4)
11. David Bowie - "Lazarus" (3)
12. PJ Harvey - "The Wheel" (5)
13. PJ Harvey - "The Wheel" (6)
14. M83 - "Do It, Try It"
15. Grimes feat. Janelle Monáe - "Venus Fly"

2016 Hall of Fame (10 weeks of advancing votes; automatically retired from chart):
David Bowie - "Lazarus" (Weeks 2 - 11)
Radiohead - "Spectre" (Weeks 2 - 11)
Savages - "Adore" (Weeks 2 - 11)
PJ Harvey - "The Wheel" (Weeks 4 - 13)
Grimes - "Artangels" (Weeks 5 - 14)

Here is this week's 20-song Spotify chart:


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 19:00 UTC as I can make it. Best of voting! :D

One of those weeks where MegaCritic Chart entries overwhelm the thread nominees. Only two of the new choices this week were from voter nominations - Teleman and Tegan & Sara - both of them because they were 'seconded.'

Fine, I'll nominate it again in hopes of it reaching the charts.

Also, it's Hearts / Wires, not Hearts and Wires.

**Flash of light** I NOW know who ANOHNI reminds me of...Scott Walker. Couldn't figure out why I dislike it so much. It's like as if Scott Walker walked into a Kanye West session and took up the mic. My idea of hell :)

Great song - made my 2012 EOY songs top 30. So I'll second it - if it is eligible on the basis that the first release flew under the radar.

^ Ahhh I just realised that too, I hope it's electable! In the same way I kinda want to nominate Love Again by Run The Jewels, mainly for its perfect music video:

Been wondering why Sturgil Simpson isn't represented this week as his latest awesome album placed #3 on our Mega Critic Chart? I particularly like 'Welcome To Earth (Pollywog)'. Can't nominate it this week as I've already nominated a pretty good song ... but if anyone else should share in my opinion ... ;)

Albums on the Mega Critic Chart that already have past highlights on the Chart ("Brace for Impact") take back seat to albums that haven't, as well as first nominations from our voters.
