Hi there!

After my being away from Top Of The Pops for over a year,

I must say, it is good to be back.

But right now, there's thunder in them there mountains.

MUSIC: Thunder In The Mountains by Toyah

0:00:270:00:29

# Where the mountains meet the sea

0:00:320:00:35

# And lights spit stains on the scenery

0:00:350:00:38

# And the air is heavy with a sticky unease

0:00:380:00:41

# I wish for my world of make believe

0:00:410:00:44

# And the rebel in my soul says go

0:00:440:00:51

# Go go go go go go

0:00:510:00:54

# And the rebel in my soul says go

0:00:540:01:01

# It's a monument

0:01:320:01:33

# To distant cities with distant cries

0:01:330:01:37

# A problem, an explosion

0:01:370:01:40

# Just a spark sets the anger in motion

0:01:400:01:43

# And the rebel in my soul says go

0:01:430:01:50

# Go go go go go go

0:01:500:01:52

And we leave Toyah breaking through.

0:04:040:04:05

Well, fellow Scots BA Robertson and Maggie Bell have just entered

0:04:050:04:08

the charts this week, with a classic PJ Proby song.

0:04:080:04:11

They do a very good version of this - Hold Me.

0:04:110:04:13

APPLAUSE

0:04:130:04:15

# When you're near me I feel so romantic

0:04:150:04:19

# When you're far away I'm always blue

0:04:200:04:24

# If you want me to remain romantic

0:04:250:04:30

# Here are all the things you'd have to do

0:04:300:04:33

# Hold me

0:04:400:04:42

# Honey, won't you hold me?

0:04:430:04:46

# Take me

0:04:550:04:57

# Honey, won't you take me?

A couple of terrific voices there,

Well, after watching Clare and company bounce around,

0:09:560:09:59

it's time for you to join Flick Colby's Legs & Co

0:09:590:10:02

and bounce around to The Tweet Song.

0:10:020:10:04

INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC: The Birdie Song by The Tweets

0:10:100:10:18

APPLAUSE

0:12:330:12:35

The Tweets, Birdie Song.

0:12:360:12:39

Former 10cc men, Kevin Godley

0:12:390:12:41

and Lol Creme, are a terrifically talented duo,

0:12:410:12:44

and that's why it's so good to see them

0:12:440:12:45

so high in the charts this week, with Under Your Thumb.

0:12:450:12:48

# I was standing in the station being pounded by the rain

0:12:480:12:52

# So I chose the last compartment of a stationary train

0:12:520:12:58

# I felt someone get in behind me but I never caught their eye

0:12:580:13:03

# But I thought I heard a woman's voice whispering goodbye

0:13:030:13:11

# So I lay down in the darkness with the beer and coffee stains

0:13:160:13:22

# And I stared out at the thunder through the broken window panes

0:13:220:13:27

# And although the storm was booming like an engine in the sky

0:13:270:13:33

# I'm sure I heard a woman's voice cry

0:13:330:13:38

# Don't wanna be under your thumb forever

0:13:380:13:43

# Don't wanna be under your thumb forever

0:13:440:13:48

# Don't wanna be under your thumb

0:13:490:13:53

# It's over and done

0:13:530:13:55

# I'll never be under your thumb forever

0:13:550:14:03

# So I rolled myself a cigarette and smoked it on my own

0:14:060:14:12

# But it didn't stop the whispers or the smell of her cologne

0:14:120:14:18

# Then she rose up out of nowhere and her hair was full of steam

0:14:180:14:23

# And she stuck her head out the window and screamed

0:14:230:14:29

# And screamed, she screamed

0:14:290:14:34

# Don't wanna be under your thumb forever

0:14:340:14:39

# Don't wanna be under your thumb forever

0:14:400:14:45

# Don't wanna be under your thumb

0:14:450:14:49

# It's over and done

0:14:490:14:51

# I'll never be under your thumb forever

0:14:510:14:58

# So I picked up an old newspaper to read

0:15:060:15:10

# And I noticed something very strange indeed

0:15:110:15:15

# So I looked a little closer and it chilled me to the bone

0:15:170:15:22

# "Woman throws herself from speeding train, identity unknown"

0:15:220:15:28

# But I recognised the picture of the woman who was dead

0:15:280:15:34

# And underneath the picture, it said

0:15:340:15:39

# Don't wanna be under your thumb forever

0:15:390:15:43

# Don't wanna be under your thumb forever

0:15:440:15:50

# Don't wanna be under your thumb

0:15:500:15:54

# It's over and done

0:15:540:15:55

# I'll never be under your thumb forever

0:15:550:16:02

# Don't wanna be under your thumb forever #

0:16:040:16:08

APPLAUSE

0:16:080:16:10

Well, the shortest record, not to mention the fastest

0:16:100:16:13

record in the charts this week, is by this brand-new band.

0:16:130:16:15

They're called The Exploited. This is Dead Cities.

0:16:150:16:18

# I'm filled up with aggression, I'm gonna smash your television

0:16:270:16:30

# Saturday night, you watch TV, Saturday night does nothing for me

0:16:300:16:34

# Dead cities, dead cities

0:16:340:16:36

# Dead cities, dead cities

0:16:370:16:39

# See the man in the electric chair

0:16:470:16:49

# They beat him up and shave his hair

0:16:490:16:51

# There is no future to behold

0:16:510:16:52

# In the city of dead, you'll be there

0:16:520:16:54

# Dead cities, dead cities

0:16:540:16:56

# Dead cities, dead cities

0:16:570:17:00

# I'm getting wasted in this city

0:17:160:17:17

# Those council houses are getting me down

0:17:170:17:19

# Go up town, see who's there

0:17:190:17:20

# There's nothing to do except hanging around

0:17:200:17:22

# Dead cities, dead cities

0:17:220:17:24

# Dead cities, dead cities

0:17:260:17:28

# Snarling and gobbing and falling around

0:17:360:17:38

# I really enjoy the freedom I've found

0:17:380:17:40

# My mate's beside me lying on the ground

0:17:400:17:41

# His ears are bursting with the volume of sound

0:17:410:17:43

APPLAUSE

0:18:050:18:09

And who said punk was dead, eh? Hmmm.

0:18:090:18:11

By way of a contrast, here's one of my favourite bands.

0:18:110:18:13

They are Squeeze, and they are back in the charts once again,

0:18:130:18:16

this time with a song called Labelled With Love.

0:18:160:18:19

APPLAUSE

0:18:190:18:21

# She unscrews the top of her new whisky bottle

0:18:240:18:29

# Shuffles about in her candle-lit hovel

0:18:290:18:34

# Like some kind of witch with blue fingers and mittens

0:18:340:18:39

# She smells like the cat and the neighbours she sickens

0:18:390:18:44

# Her black and white TV has long seen a picture

0:18:440:18:49

# The cross on the wall is a permanent fixture

0:18:490:18:54

# The postman delivers the final reminders

0:18:540:18:59

# She sells off her silver and poodles in china

0:18:590:19:04

# Drinks to remember I, me and myself

0:19:080:19:13

# And winds up the clock and knocks dust from the shelf

0:19:130:19:18

# Home is a love that I miss very much

0:19:180:19:23

# So the past has been bottled and labelled with love

0:19:230:19:29

# During the wartime an American pilot

0:19:330:19:38

# Made every air-raid a time of excitement

0:19:380:19:43

# She moved to his prairie and married the Texan

0:19:430:19:48

# She learned from a distance how love was a lesson

0:19:480:19:53

# He became drinker and she became mother

0:19:530:19:58

# She knew that one day she'd be one or the other

0:19:580:20:04

# He ate himself older, drunk himself dizzy

0:20:040:20:09

# Proud of her features, she kept herself pretty

0:20:090:20:14

# Drinks to remember I, me and myself

# He like a cowboy died drunk in a slumber

0:20:430:20:48

# Out on the porch in the middle of summer

0:20:480:20:53

# She crossed the ocean back home to her family

0:20:530:20:58

# But they had retired to roads that were sandy

0:20:580:21:03

# She moved home alone without friends or relations

0:21:030:21:08

# Lived in a world full of age reservation

0:21:080:21:14

# On moth-eaten armchairs, she'd say that she'd sod all

0:21:140:21:19

# The friends who had left her to drink from the bottle

collectively having success these days as The Creatures.

0:25:270:25:30

It's amazing, you know,

0:25:300:25:31

I last introduced Top Of The Pops 18 months ago,

0:25:310:25:33

and since then there have been so many new names,

0:25:330:25:35

faces and sounds in the chart, while I was in America.

0:25:350:25:38

People like Altered Images, Linx, Imagination,

0:25:380:25:41

even The Teardrop Explodes were virtual unknowns when I left.

0:25:410:25:44

Right now, let's continue our look at this week's charts,
