UK Top Shazamed Ads: House of Fraser and Freeview shake up the chart

Freeview takes the first place in our Shazam chart this week with 'I Want To Know What Love Is' by Foreigner.

The uplifting 80s track appears in the brand's 'Left Behinds' spot, which features a motley crew of well-used toys and stuffed animals who belt out the track after being abandoned at a jumble sale.

The power ballad has knocked everyone's favourite penguin off of the number one spot, as 'Real Love' by Tom Odell for John Lewis falls into second place after three weeks at the top.

And there's a new entry as 'Younger' by Seinabo Sey, the soundtrack to House of Fraser's Christmas ad, sneaks in at number nine.

The minute-long spot, by 18 Feet and Rising, features models surprising their loved ones with gifts at a photoshoot and is part of the department store's wider 'Be You No Matter Who' campaign.

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