    Jan 3, 2013 The Chart Show

The same love as last year keeps Macklemore on top! No mean achievement as some see it as a "time and place" song that shouldn't have legs, it does and was our #2 song of the year.

Other albums that are showing legs ... The Shins with their 4th song to chart; Beach House's "Bloom" just won't wilt and Father John Misty keeps on pulling out the hits!

It's great to see Johnny Marr of The Smiths have his first entry on our chart. I think you might hear him again later tonight on Transmission's Top Hits.

We lost Local Natives after four weeks, Stars after two and Muse after only one, but any of those might bounce back. Happy New Year!
