The UK’s Favourite Road Trip Songs

With the easing of restrictions across the UK taking place, we have created a list of the UK’s favourite driving songs for those planned road journeys and staycations.

Last year, a poll was created by Goodyear and we found that the list revealed some energetic and danceable records. The common feature amongst the majority of songs, was the danceability rating with many people preferring songs which keep them moving whilst on the road.

Pharrell Williams - Happy

Love it or hate it, whether you’re happy doing a planned road trip or simply happy to be out and heading for a staycation, the song title says it all. Popular amongst the whole family, this song is sure to grab the listener’s attention.

Tracy Chapman – Fast Car

Powerful, uplifting and written by Tracy herself, she without doubt penned a song that will stand the test of time. It’s a great tune and with the word ‘car’ in the title, was always going to be a favourite with motorists.
