Pharrell Williams tops UK car karaoke songs chart

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.”
