AMF WC Classics Edition 97

Post by spiritualized »

Hello everyone,
It's time for instalment n°97 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: 115 votes last week (-11 votes)
:scared-shocked: On the top step of the podium : Love's A House is Not a Motel
:scared-shocked: New Entries : Nirvana / Neil Young / Minor Threat / Elbow
:text-bump: Kicked out this week : Dusty Springfield / The Pipettes / Leonard Cohen / Smokey Robinson & the Miracles
:text-bump: Smokey Robinson & the Miracles DO NOT reach the Hall of Fame this week !

Love what I'm seeing right now - I seriously challenge all the nominators to pick songs that are either unranked, bubbling under, or below #1000.
