Clean Bandit's 'Rather Be' has re-entered The Drum's Shazam chart this week – taking the top spot for the third time.

The track, which features English singer-songwriter Jess Glynne, provides the score to Marks & Spencer's 'Adventures in Food' series.

The most recent spot from the British retailer focuses on 'Adventures in Well Being', and with close-up shots of perfectly stacked celery and freshly chopped parsley, is reminiscent of the brand's seductive 'not just any' ads.

Online mobile game Clash of Clans enters in at third place with Bob Dylan's instrumental song 'Wigwam' from his 1970 album 'Self Portrait'.

And Ford sneaks in at number five thanks to 'Open The Gates' by Miami duo SLDGHMR.

The song appears in the American car manufacturer's action-packed ad 'Night Flight' – directed by Fast and the Furious director Rob Cohen.

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