At number one is Noble England, the 2010 World Cup song by comedian Rik Mayall, who died on June 9 aged 56.
This is followed by other hits from previous tournaments: All Together Now by the Farm (Euro 2004), Three Lions by Baddiel, Skinner and the Lightning Seeds (Euro 1996) and Vindaloo by Fat Les (World Cup 1998).
Bring It Home is the only song penned for World Cup 2014 to feature in the top ten.
“It is a massive achievement For Disco Mister to be up there with well established artists whosea songs have all been out for a number of years and are already well known,” said Wes Wes Metcalfe, operations director of Band Crusade, the label which released Bring It Home.
“With the support of the public we hope Bring it home can break into the official uk top 40 this Sunday.”
The song is raising funds for two charities, the Ann Maguire Educational Fund and The Bobby Moore Fund.
It only costs 79p to download.
