Freeview takes second place in our Shazam chart this week, thanks to Foreigner's power ballad 'I Want to Know What Love Is'.

The free-to-air TV service has a history of choosing catchy scores, with tracks by Marvin Gaye and The Kinks featuring in its previous 'Cat and Budgie' and 'Tadpoles' spots.

The latest ad introduces us to the 'left behinds' - a choir of abandoned toys fronted by a well-worn teddy bear, who leads the pack in belting out the 80s classic.

Beats sneaks into tenth place with 'Something New' by Axwell and Ingrosso.

The song appears in the Apple-owned brand's new #SoloSelfie campaign, starring Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Nicki Minaj and Usher.

And Tom Odell's 'Real Love' for John Lewis reigns supreme again, staying in the top spot for the third week in a row.

The charts are based on the number of times each ad has been Shazamed over the past week using music identification app Shazam.
