    Dec 26, 2013 The Chart Show

This week and next, the Chart Show is revisiting the Current's greatest hits of 2013. This week, we're playing songs that spent their maximum 12 eligible weeks on the charts but never reached the top spot.

The second column below, "HP," represents the highest position each song reached. The third column, "TP," represents all of each song's positions added together — the lower that number is, the higher each song lingered on the charts. Make sense? Let's listen!
