UK Top 100 Music chart summary: w/e August 24th 2013


Going straight in at No.1 in the UK Top 100 Music chart is Ellie Goulding with Burn, and it’s not a bad dance track, but also far from outstanding.

As such, Miley Cyrus drops to No.3 with We Can’t Stop, and when Miley turns up the volume in her video, I turned it down. And look at that silly writing on her arm. Is that REALLY a tattoo?! Christ, the youth of today! And the ‘song’ is a load of auto-tuned shite!
