AMF Chart Week 21 2016

Post by Setherex » Mon May 23, 2016 3:05 am

Welcome to Week 21 of the AMF Chart! The chart where they took one of the old notorious housing projects. It certainly looks a lot better.

Here are your rankings for Week 20 (number of weeks on the chart so far in parentheses):
1. Radiohead - "Burn the Witch" (2)
2. Radiohead - "Daydreaming" (2)
3. Radiohead - "True Love Waits" (1)
4. PJ Harvey - "The Community of Hope" (10)
5. Parquet Courts - "Human Performance" (5)
6. Grimes feat. Janelle Monáe - "Venus Fly" (6)
7. ANOHNI - "Drone Bomb Me" (9)
8. Iggy Pop - "Gardenia" (7)
9. Kevin Morby - "I Have Been to the Mountain" (1)
10. Andrew Bird - "Roma Fade" (2)
11. Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Dark Necessities" (1)
11. The Stone Roses - "All for One" (1)
11. White Lung - "Below" (1)
14. Skepta - "Shutdown" (1)
15. Anderson .Paak - "The Season / Carry Me" (3)
16. De La Soul feat. Dave West - "Beautiful Night" (1)
17. King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard - "Gamma Knife" (3)
18. Aesop Rock - "Shrunk" (1)
18. LUH - "$ORO" (1)
18. Yak - "Harbour the Feeling" (1)
Total Votes: 161

Congratulations to PJ Harvey for entering our Hall of Fame! Seems appropriate enough that Harvey becomes the first artist this year to earn two Hall of Famers. I'm fairly positive she won't be the last one. Due to Harvey's automatic retirement, as well as the tie for 11th place, the top 12 songs otherwise went through to this week's Chart.

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"
16. Courtney Barnett - "Three Packs a Day"
17. Grimes feat. Janelle Monáe - "Venus Fly" (2)
18. ANOHNI - "Drone Bomb Me" / Grimes feat. Janelle Monáe - "Venus Fly" (3) / PJ Harvey - "The Community of Hope"
19. Radiohead - "Burn the Witch"
20. Radiohead - "Burn the Witch" (2)

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)
Courtney Barnett - "Three Packs a Day" (Weeks 7 - 16)
PJ Harvey - "The Community of Hope" (Weeks 11 - 20)

Here is this week's 17-song Spotify chart (with 1 song included below via external link, and 2 via YouTube link)


Radiohead - "True Love Waits" (streaming on Apple Music)
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

Repeat nomination - will require a minimum of two seconding nominations to re-enter the Chart.

It's totally cool! Haha. Happens every once in a while. And I don't mind re-entries to the Chart - second chances are what the rule is there for.

Not sure if it's already been on the chart, but I nominate Beyonce - Don't Hurt Yourself
Two songs play in my head over and over as the world ends: Father John Misty - "Pure Comedy" and Billie Eilish - "all the good girls go to hell."
