A singer who writes tunes in the dark has held on to the top spot in the singles chart for a second week.

Replay, the debut single by Iyaz, retained its number one position, as electronic pop outfit Owl City climbed 48 places to number two with Fireflies.

The catchy Riverside (Let's Go) by Sidney Samson fell one place to number three, as did Starstrukk by 3OH3 featuring Katy Perry, reportedly now engaged to comedian Russell Brand, which dropped to four.

A cover of Don't Stop Believin' by the Glee cast rose 94 places to number five, while Journey's original version remained unchanged at number six.

Former winner of The X Factor Alexandra Burke saw her latest effort Broken Heels rise two places to ten, according to the Official Charts Company.

There were two new entries in the singles chart: rapper Plan B's Stay Too Long at number nine and New York indie quartet Vampire Weekend's Cousins at number 39.

In the album chart, Florence and the Machine's Lungs rose a single place to number one after being in the charts for 28 consecutive weeks.

It initially debuted at number two in the Official Albums Chart in July 2009 and stayed there for five weeks, only held off from the top spot by Michael Jackson.

Last week's top selling album Sunny Side Up by Paolo Nutini dropped one place to number two.

There were three new entries in the top ten: Contra by Vampire Weekend at number three; UK rock band You Me At Six's second album Hold Me Down at number five and Mancunian trio Delphic's Acolyte at number eight - they have been described by Q Magazine as a "New Order for the 21st Century".
