The behemoth that is ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ by Queen has been revealed as the nation’s favourite song to sing-along to during car journeys.
A survey carried out by the AA earlier this month has found that 51% of Britons like to have a sing-song when it comes to travelling in the car, with pop music being the favoured genre.
Other classics that hit the top spots included the legendary ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ by Bon Jovi and ‘Sweet Caroline’ by Neil Diamond.
Cheryl Calverley, Marketing Director at the AA, said: “Our research has shown that we’re more likely to sing in the car than anywhere else, with group sing-a-longs forming special memories for 74% of us. It’s no coincidence that the favourite sing-a-long song, Bohemian Rhapsody, also featured in the famous car scene from the hit movie Wayne’s World”.
Girls run the world in the car, with mothers being voted to have the best singing voice, with daughters following closely.
With the Easter bank holiday starting in just a couple of days, it is likely that many of us will be travelling up and down the country. 95% of people said that music helps time fly by during long journeys, with 74% treasuring musical moments in the car, the list of songs compiled by the AA should be the ideal playlist to make driving less tedious this weekend.
