With an apparent lack of any roadkill irony, the UKâs drivers have voted The Killers as the top band to listen to while driving.
A poll of 1000 drivers by insurance company elephant.co.uk â yeah, MusicRadar really trusts their musical savvy, obviously â put The Killersâ Mr Brightside at the top of a poll of ultimate driving songs. Whatever a âdriving songâ actually is?
In fact a âdriving songâ appears to be - with the exception of Mr Brightside - just old music. Some of it rubbish. The Top 10 driving songs in the poll are:
1 The Killers - Mr Brightside
2 Bonnie Tyler - Holding Out For A Hero
3 Phil Collins - In The Air Tonight Â
4 Don McLean - American Pie
5 Guns N' Roses - Paradise CityÂ
6 Steppenwolf - Born To Be Wild
7 Cyndi LauperÂ - I Drove All Night
8 Survivor - Eye Of The Tiger
9 Stealer's Wheel - Stuck In The Middle With You
10Â Wilson Pickett - Mustang Sally Â
With that soundtrack, is it any wonder thereâs so much mayhem on the UKâs roads? Tip for musicians, though â go '70s-'80s AOR and youâll be sure to get at least some plays in the UKâs family cars. Put your foot down and tell us: what do you like to drive to?
