AMF WC Classics Edition 94

Post by spiritualized »

Hello everyone,
It's time for instalment n°94 of the Classics Chart, where YOU get to nominate and vote for the best songs ever in a tournament to the death ! Only the cream of the crop will go through the grueling EIGHT weeks of charting.

Nominations will follow the rules below

- only the first top 1000 AM song nominated each week is eligible.
- only the first six top AM 1001-10000 songs nominated each week is eligible.
- that would leave 3 places each week reserved for un-acclaimed songs (if more than 3, the fourth unranked song will take the spot of a second tier one)

Top Tier (1-1000)
Second Tier (1001-10,000)
Third Tier (bubbling and unranked)

:scared-shocked: 132 votes last week (+29 votes)
:scared-shocked: On the top step of the podium : A Tribe Called Quest's Can I Kick It ?
:scared-shocked: New Entries : Deltron 3030 / ACDC / Dusty Springfield / Television
:text-bump: Kicked out this week : Neil Young / M83
:text-bump: The Association reaches the Hall of Fame this week

Marlene Dietrich - Sag’ mir, wo die Blumen sind (1962), unranked

I'm really happy to see "Never My Love" by The Association getting to the Hall of Fame. I could've never imagined this when I nominated it...
