It's the most wonderful time of year.

After making its chart debut on the Carlton Dry Independent Music Charts just last week, the unlikely Christmas miracle that is 1996 holiday album Aussie Christmas With Bucko & Champs has continued to roll on as its place on the final Albums chart for 2015 has surprisingly risen.

After coming in at #16 last week, the record by Aussie music veterans Greg Champion and Colin Buchanan aka Bucko & Champs, has taken out #13 on the chart, pushing past You Am I, Sticky Fingers and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard along the way. 

Meanwhile, the top end of the Albums chart remains unchanged for the most part as The Ten Tenors again took out top place with Our Christmas Wish, while Courtney Barnett's Sometimes I Sit & Think, & Sometimes I Just Sit maintained its spot at #2. 

Sia's 2014 1000 Forms Of Fear came in at #3 after a whopping 76 weeks on the chart, swapping places with Russell MorrisRed Dirt Red Heart which finished in fourth.

Similarly, indigenous songwriter Gurrumul's The Gospel Album jumped from #6 to #5, switching with Hermitude's Dark Night Sweet Light.

On the Singles chart, there were again few changes as Chet Faker & Marcus Marr's The Trouble With Us and Vance Joy's Fire & The Flood finished in first and second respectively, while Sia again made her way back in the top three with Alive.
