The Beths | Jump Rope Gazers

Probably not surprising.
"Spotlight" did grow on me over the last few weeks, but I still don't care for it (and I really did try). Well, I can't like everything...

Jessie Ware - Spotlight

Pretty surprise because both "Jump Rope Gazers" by The Beths and "Spotlight" by Jessie Ware previously nominated by Rdwdbob on the 28th edition of the AMF Weekly Chart 2020 then join with other songs on the 29th edition but only the former song that reaching the AMF Weekly Chart Hall of Fame (the former song also reaching number-one on some edition of that chart). Here, until 31 October 2020 if so many AM user vote "Spotlight" by Jessie Ware more than "Jump Rope Gazers" by The Beths, "Spotlight" by Jessie Ware would be the winner of this tournament and also she want to make revenge over "Jump Rope Gazers" by The Beths that currently featured on the AMF Weekly Chart Hall of Fame.

Spotlight all the way!

I don't think anyone saw The Beths making the finals, that is a huge surprise.

So "Spotlight" has to be the favorite for the AMF 2020 SOTY, right?

"Spotlight" by Jessie Ware. I prefer "Mirage (Don't Stop)" but the former clearly snatches.

I didn't follow this tournament, but I went into this thread to check if Spotlight was in the final. Yay! So I'm voting for Spotlight.

Thanks for the shoutout Wisnu! I am completely surprised that two of my nominations made the final round here! Woo-Hoo!

Looks like 'Spotlight' will take the spotlight (no pun intended). Obviously I think highly of both songs but after listening to them repeatedly over the last few weeks I'm giving the edge to 'Jump Rope Gazers'.

Cheers for this Schüttelbirne and to everyone who nominated for some fine picks (congrats also to Rdwdbob whatever happens!)

Here are my current 10 favourite songs from the competition not nominated by me with an asterisk next to any new discoveries:

1. Jessie Ware - Remember Where You Are
2. Run the Jewels feat. Gangsta Boo - walking in the snow
3. Lingua Ignota - O Ruthless Great Divine Director
4. Aksak Maboul - Dramuscule*
5. Katie Gately - Waltz
6. Run the Jewels - a few words for the firing squad (radiation)
7. Zebra Katz - IN IN IN*
8. Dogleg - Ender*
9. Woodkid - Goliath
10. HAIM - The Steps

As for the final 2, I get the impression the fans of Spotlight are the more passionate side about their choice but I feel compelled to plump for Jump Rope Gazers!

We had 19 votes. Thanks for the participation!

The Beths | Jump Rope Gazers: 6 votes
Jessie Ware | Spotlight: 13 votes

That means the winner is:

I can reveal now that five different people nominated that song, so I was pretty sure it would be our eventual winner from the beginning. Now we'll have the EOY poll to look forward to and how it will place there (I'm reasonably sure it will make the Top 100).
