If you’ve found singing along to Pharrell Williams in the car over the last couple of years then you’re not alone.
His hit ‘Happy’ has been crowned as the top go-to track for UK motorists when on a journey with friends or family.
BP Ulitmate surveyed 2,000 drivers to find out which songs are the nation’s favourites for a car karaoke session.
Playing music over the car radio is the number one tactic people use to avoid passengers getting restless and to keep them content.
But in-car entertainment doesn’t always involve a sing-along – the survey also found half of the respondents keep themselves occupied by chatting and 28 per cent like to play traditional games like I spy.
A spokesman for BP Ultimate added: “As Brits take to the road this summer we wanted to find out how they keep things moving in the car.
“It’s great to see drivers using a variety of different strategies to keep everyone entertained, and that music, traditional games and the lost art of conversation are still hugely popular – even in this digital age.”
