Top of the Pops, 15th August 2013

Tinie Tempah ft. 2 Chainz - Trampoline

In at number 3 - With dancers on actual trampolines, playing tambourines, dressed as tangerines.

Of Monsters and Men - Little Talks

High Climber - Up 15 to number 19 - Iceland's answer to Mumford and Sons are back in the chart and in your living room (or portable multimedia device).

Le Youth - Cool

Up 14 to number 35 - Top 40 and TOTP debut for this "electronic musician, DJ and producer" (says Wikipedia). Here in his capacity as electronic musician.

Rudimental - Right Here

Up 10 to number 14 - The Rude boys have already been on a couple of times, but this is their first appearance without a credited vocalist to assist them.They smash it.

Disclosure - F for You

Up 8 to number 20 - Memories of the Artful Dodger's classic 90s performances come flooding back as the Disclosure brothers both play instruments whose combined output can only make up about 1% of the song. Where is the rest of the music coming from?

Birdy - Skinny Love

Up 1 to number 44 - Birdie pops in unexpectedly as Skinny Love climbs up the chart for the 50th time. The crowd and the viewers fall in love with it all over again.

Pink - True Love / Just Give Me A Reason

Up 1 to number 17 - Pink's Nate Ruess vehicle Just Give Me A Reason is convecting upwards in the lower depths of the chart this week, so Pink comes on to sing her bits from that duet and her current hit as well. With a snap costume change in between.

Miley Cyrus - We Can't Stop

Straight in at number 1 - Miley's number 1! But she's not in the country sadly, so we have to content ourselves with the video, edited to remove a decent portion of the rump-shaking. She can't stop us stopping her.

PRESENTER: James Masterton
