Britain’s favourite driving songs have been revealed after a mega survey of more than 2,000 drivers.

Cuvva asked what songs Britains drivers like listening to when they hit the road - and the results did not disappoint.

The survey found a clear favourite at the top of Britain’s driving playlist - as well as some surprising entries into our top 5.

Britain’s top 5 driving songs

Those polled were able to choose five songs. Here are the tunes that came out at the top of the pack 👇

1. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen - 23% (475 votes): At number 1, it’s an all-time classic. Strap in for a full-throttle journey that showcases Queens’ gear-shifting brilliance and Freddie Mercury's vocal acrobatics, making every listen a ride to remember.

2. Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac - 21% (437 votes): Just missing out on top spot is a true soundtrack for the soul, with every turn revealing a story of heartache and hope - perfect for a drive along a motorway.

3. Livin’ on a Prayer by Bon Jovi - 21% (437 votes): Bon Jovi's Livin' on a Prayer punches the accelerator, with its tale of Tommy and Gina's enduring spirit against the odds securing third place in our chart.

4. Dancing Queen by ABBA - 19% (388 votes): Dancing Queen’s jubilant melody and infectious rhythm is a musical joyride and well deserves its place in our top-5.

5. Happy by Pharrell Williams - 12% (244 votes): Happy’s upbeat tempo and radiant vibes is the perfect soundtrack to a summer road trip. It rounds off our top 5.

Also receiving a lot of votes were some more modern hits, including Flowers by Miley Cyrus, As It Was by Harry Styles, Anti-Hero by Taylor Swift, Dance The Night by Dua Lipa, and Good For You by Olivia Rodrigo.
