Maren Morris - The Bones
The Electric Soft Parade - On Your Own

Because I like Country songs, sometimes I'm nominating them (including Maren Morris and previously Travis Denning and Kelsea Ballerini) to promote Country songs into the UK time on the AMF Weekly Chart. However, because I like super long Pop songs too (usually Progressive Rock songs like songs by King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Yes, and other Progressive Rock bands), I also nominating one of many super long Pop songs including "On Your Own" by The Electric Soft Parade, which was longer than "i'd do anything for love (but i won't do that)" by Meat Loaf (12:00), "Alone" by me (10:22), and "Fear Inoculum" by Tool (10:21). Unfortunately, "On Your Own" still lost to a cover of The Animals' song, "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" by the Disco band Santa Esmeralda (16:12), a stage recording of a cover of The Temptations' song, "Get Ready" by the Rock band Rare Earth (21:30), and Kraftwerk's own song, an Electronic song, "Autobahn" (22:47).

Orkesta Mendoza - Are We Better Now?

And I don't know if this is eligible (it's 46 years old, but was previously unreleased, I think):

Neil Young - Try

If not wrong, since 1974. Because, according to the Wikipedia article about his album, Homegrown it was recorded in June, September, December 1974, and January 1975 but still unreleased until scheduled to be released in June this year (originally to be released in April but delayed).

Five months is the cutoff point for a song to be eligible, right? I want to nominate Fai rumore by Diodato

It's six months, so you're well within the time.

I just checked because I was sure this had already been nominated, and was amazed to discover that it hadn't been. What an oversight! Definitely seconding it!

Hi Wisnu, unfortunately your first nomination is over a year old so doesn't qualify, so I will take The Electric Soft Parade as your first nomination.

Any further nominations this week will not make it unless they are seconded. This is a symptom of having so many people participating, which is great.

OK. What if the second nomination is:
Mocca - Simple I Love You

This band was categorized as "Indo Pop" although their genres are Indie Pop, Jazz, and Swing! See also the Wikipedia article about themselves. Talking about Indo Pop, Mocca is one of several best known Indo Pop artists after Endah N Rhesa, Iqbaal Ramadhan, Marion Jola, Stephanie Poetri, Ten 2 Five, and other Indo Pop artists and also one of several songs written in English-language (with their song, "Me & My Boyfriend") featured on Rolling Stone Indonesia's list of "the 150 greatest Indonesian songs of all time" along with "No Fruits for Today" by Sore. Indo Pop was a combination between Pop Music of America and the UK with Indonesian-language lyrics (sometimes Indo Pop also written in English-language too). Mentioned "Indie Pop" in the music of Mocca because the days before Chairlift, Echosmith, Florence and the Machine, and other Indie Pop bands with a girl on lead vocals, are formed, Mocca was formed for the first time in 1997 although "Indie Pop" was found for the first time in the 1980s during The Smiths' years in the UK.
