The deadline is September 5th at 12:00 (UTC).

If you want to see the entire bracket, go to this post. I updated it with last round's results. I hope it's clear who will face who in Round 2.

Here's this week's matchups:

1. Sufjan Stevens | My Rajneesh vs. Devandra Banhart | Let‘s See
2. Fiona Apple | Cosmonauts vs. Megan Thee Stallion ft. Beyoncé | Savage (Remix)
3. Nicolas Jaar | Gocce vs. Terrace Martin & Denzel Curry | Pig Feet
4. Yves Tumor | Kerosene! vs. Dua Lipa | Levitating

6. Yves Tumor | Gospel for a New Century vs. Nadine Shah | Buckfast

Here's the playlist:



Have fun!


We have a tie from last round:

8. Run the Jewels | walking in the snow vs. Rustin Man | Kinky Living | 11 - 11

The next vote by somebody who hasn't already voted in this match-up, decides!

7. Little Simz | might bang, might not vs. Die Sterne | Hey Dealer
8. The Strokes | Ode to the Mets vs. Mocca | Simple I Love You

My Picks: It is (probably) known that I really like Nadine Shah, so a bit more about "Die Sterne" who reduced to the singer surprisingly made their best album since 20ish years. The guitar riff in Hey Dealer gets me even after listening many times.

Sufjan Stevens - My Rajneesh
I still remember Sufjan Stevens since a pretty long time ago. "My Rajneesh" previously nominated on AMF Weekly Chart some times ago.

Megan Thee Stallion Feat. Beyonce - Savage (Remix)
This song was Megan's first biggest hit single by sitting on the top position of Billboard's Hot 100. Like "My Rajneesh", the remix version of "Savage" also previously nominated on the Weekly Chart.

Terrace Martin and Denzel Curry - Pig Feet
No comment for this song by Terrace Martin with Denzel Curry or "Gocce" by Nicolas Jaar at all!

Dua Lipa - Levitating
Talking about Dua Lipa, her animation music video for a song by her can reminds me of another animation music video titled "My Future" by Billie Eilish. Y'all have your creative things, y'all the best!

John K Feat. Kelsea Ballerini - If We Never Met
Why their collaboration must been meet with a stranger song? For me, I like their collaboration, an Indie act meet with a Country star.

Nadine Shah - Buckfast
However, "Gospel for a New Century" by Tumor Yves previously nominated on the Weekly Chart.

Die Sterne - Hey Dealer
Their band name looks like too foreign, if not wrong, German-language.

Mocca - Simple I Love You
It was their latest release as of 1 August 2020.
Director of Top Hits and also founder of Top 500 Radio Hits of All Time, now Top 500+.

Seeing "Ngihamba Nawe" dominate fills me with joy. Seeing "Savage (Remix) being dominated fills me with despair :(
