Top of the Pops, 8th August 2013

Several enduringly popular tracks are bobbing back up the chart this week, which means that some entries from a couple of months ago deservingly get their time in the spotlight, while other acts return for a reprise with the chance to do something slightly different. And there's an exclusive two-song medley from one returning star.

John Newman - Love Me Again

Up 2 to number 2 - Bounding back up the chart, John Newman returns with a gospel choir to love us again again.

Calvin Harris ft. Ayah Marar - Thinking About You

Up 5 to number 9 - Calvin and Ayah are back to storm the barn for a second time.

Eliza Doolittle - Big When I Was Little/ You And Me

Highest New Entry - In at number 12 / Back in at number 73 - Eliza has two tracks to bring us this week. Most of her slot is devoted to new hit Big When I Was Little, but there's also time for a quick acapella segue into You And Me, which has slipped back into the lower end of the rundown.

Imagine Dragons - It's Time

Up 23 to number 30 - Rock song of the the week from these adequately groomed North Americans.

AlunaGeorge - You Know You Like It

In at number 39 - In the week that their album enters the chart, George and Aluna bring us an icily boisterous performance of this returning older hit.

Lana Del Rey - Summertime Sadness

High Climber - Up 28 to number 4 - Wait, come back! This is the dance remix. Minimal staging, maximal raving.

Jay-Z ft. Justin Timberlake - Holy Grail

Up 6 to number 11 - Jay and JT have been climbing the top 30 for a few weeks, but only now have schedules lined up to permit this appearance. As you'd hope, it's something pretty special, the toe-tapping twosome matching each other line for line and hook for hook.

Avicii ft. Aloe Blacc - Wake Me Up

Third week at number 1 - Time for something a bit different in week 3: Avicii takes a break and Aloe Blacc ropes in a finger-pickin' friend for a stripped-back bluegrass version.

PRESENTER: Kimberley Walsh
