Florence And The Machine have held on to the Number 1 spot on the Official Singles Chart for the third week running.
The band's latest track, Spectrum (Say My Name), which has been remixed by Scottish DJ and producer Calvin Harris, knocked Maroon 5's Payphone off the top of the chart earlier this month to give them their first ever Number 1 single.
Maroon 5 still continue to hold firm at Number 2, while London girl group Stooshe climb two places to Number 3 with Blackheart. Brighton chart throb Conor Maynard scores his second Top 10 single with Vegas Girl which debuts at Number 4 today, while Flo Rida completes this week's Top 5 with Whistle (5).
In addition to Conor Maynard (Number 4) there are four other new entries in this week's Official Singles Chart Top 40.
US pop duo/engaged couple Karmin score their debut UK Top 10 hit with Brokenhearted (6), while French house DJ/producer Cedric Gervais is new in at Number 26 with Molly. Fellow Frenchman, Madeon, continues his run of UK Top 40 hits with Finale entering at Number 35, while Clement Marfo & The Frontline score their first Top 40 hit with Champion debuting at Number 38.
Flowing Friday's (July 27) lavish Olympic Games opening ceremony, 15 tracks selected by creative director Danny Boyle have started to make an impact on the Official Singles Chart.
Arctic Monkeys, Underworld, Muse and Emeli Sande lead the charge with two tracks each.
Arctic Monkeys' I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor re-enters the Official Singles Chart at Number 95, while their cover of The Beatles' Come Together is at 67. Underworld's Caliban's Dream is new in at 69, and their mega-hit, Born Slippy, re-enters at 111. Emeli Sande's break-through single Heaven re-enters at Number 125, while her heartfelt rendition of Abide With Me debuts at 180 after a mere 24 hours on sale. Muse's Survival is at 82, followed by their 2009 Top 10 smash, Uprising, at Number 104.
Labrinth FT Tinie Tempah's Earthquake shoots up to 78 and Dizzee Rascal's Bonkers is Number 80. The Jam's Going Underground and The Clash's London Calling re-enter at Number 102 and 128, respectively. Frank Turner's I Still Believe is at Number 97 and The Chemical Brothers' Galvanize is at 109. Vangelis' Chariots Of Fire, which was performed on the night by the London Symphony Orchestra with a little help from Mr Bean, is at 118.
This week's highest Olympics-related track, however, is Public Enemy's Harder Than You Think, climbing 44 places to Number 27 after featuring in Channel 4's Paralympics ad campaign.
