BRAND *NEW* AMF Chart Week 41

Postby spiritualized » Thu Oct 13, 2016 9:01 am

Bonjour à tous,

Here we are then ! - I managed to find some time to get to grips with this new responsibility: to carry on with the flame that Setherex supported for a long while. He deserved a break, so here we go.

Changes :

The Hall of Fame will kick in after five weeks rather than ten weeks, starting next week - in order for new songs to rotate more easily. Nominations will of course matter more now.
I will ditch some of the sub-charts - favoring Spotify Playlists.

I will also add the evolution of the songs between weeks in the summary - like a "real" chart - see below
For the new entries, I will also state their origins (Excerpts from Mcch or nominations, secondments, etc...)

For this week's nominations, I have only taken the nominations made before the end of the official week. So if your nomination doesn't appear, re-nominate.
No Nick Cave due to the gap between the charts - he will have to go through nominations.

Results from the Week 33 votes :

Track - Number of Votes - Weeks in Chart - Evolution

1. The Avalanches feat. Jonathan Donahue - "Colours" - 11 votes - 9 weeks - + 0
2. Michael Kiwanuka - "Cold Little Heart" - 11 votes - 5 weeks - +3
3. Father John Misty - "Real Love Baby" - 10 votes - 2 weeks - -1
4. Radiohead - "Present Tense" - 9 votes - 9 weeks - +1
5. Wilco - "If I Ever Was a Child" - 8 votes - 4 weeks - -2
6. The Stone Roses - "Beautiful Thing" - 8 votes - Hall of Fame ! - +1
7. Black Mountain - "Space to Bakersfield" - 7 votes - 6 weeks - -1
8. Bon Iver - "22 (OVER S∞∞N) [Bob Moose Extended Cab Version]" - 7 votes - New Entry !
9. Paul Simon - "Stranger to Stranger" - 6 votes - 2 weeks - +0
10. Preoccupations - "Degraded" - 5 votes - New Entry !
11. The Strokes - "Threat of Joy" - 5 votes - 4 weeks -3

NEW ENTRIES FOR WEEK 41

12 . Bon Iver - 33 “GOD” - New MCCh entry
13. Jenny Hval - Conceptual Romance - New MCCh entry
14 - Touché Amoré - New Halloween - New MCCh entry
15 - Hamilton Leithauser - A 1000 Times - New MCCh entry
16 - Lydia Loveless - Heaven - New MCCh entry
17 - Warpaint - Whiteout - New MCCh entry
18 - M.I.A. - Bird Song (Diplo Remix) - Forum Nomination, seconded
19 - Disclosure - BOSS - Forum Nomination
20 - Bon Iver - 10 d E A T h b R E a s T ⚄ ⚄ - Forum Nomination
21 - UNKLE - Cowboys or Indians - Forum Nomination

So this new version of the AMF Chart is dominated by Bon Iver's new release ! It's now up to you if you want to keep him at the top or punish him with new nominations :)

Enjoy listening to all these great tracks and vote away !
Still 10 votes allowed, the poll expires next week.

The Hall of Fame Spotify playlist will be added later.

Thank you so much for doing this, spiritualized!

However, why are Avalanches etc., who have been 5 weeks or more on the chart, still in the game? Wouldn't it have been better to make room for Nick Cave and others?

Edit: Probably silly of me to bring this up though, when people have already started to vote.

Actually, I did ponder the thought of applying the rule straight away. But with a few tracks @ 9 weeks, I thought I'd give them a chance to finish with style. And the tracks who would have replaced the potential AMF-xiters would have been nominations made after the deadline.
Nick Cave can be nominated and surely will :)

By the way, this is by no means a definite version of this chart, any suggestion is welcome and will be considered !

I think I will try to release the new chart at the weekend, easier for me and will allow people to put in their last nominations serenely :)

A tripled re-nomination for Angel Olsen's 'Sister'.

Also I'd like to suggest maybe running the weeks on list to 8. That gives a hit track a full two months. I like to listen to the list in full every week. It sometimes takes multiple listens to grab subtle nuances that I didn't recognize in earlier listens. I just think 5 weeks is a little too short.

Beyonce - All Night

I nominated this song in the Week 33 thread and it got seconded, but I guess all those nominations got wiped out. So I'll re-nominate it, even though it's pushing 6 months now.

Is this the time to revisit the conversation about no. of tracks by the same artist on the chart?
