Rock classic Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey crowned the nation’s favourite driving song

ROCK classic ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ by Journey has been crowned the nation’s favourite driving song, The Sun can reveal.

The US band’s steering wheel tapper gained around a fifth of the vote, followed in joint second place by ‘Go Your Own Way’ and ‘Mr Blue Sky’.

The Killers secured fourth place with their karaoke classic ‘Mr Brightside’ and The Proclaimers rated joint seventh with ‘I’m Gonna Be’.

Mark Tongue of Select Car Leasing said: “Some songs just seem to fit the bill when you’re on the road – be it the rhythm, anthemic lyrics that get the whole car singing along, or the imagery they conjure up.

“Our results show it’s mainly older songs, rockers and power ballads from the 1970s and 80s, that are still doing the business for many motorists.”

Steppenwolf’s ‘Born to Be Wild’, which featured in seminal road movie Easy Rider, only just squeezed into the top 10.

The rest of the 10 was made up by Lynyrd Skynyrd’s ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, ‘Africa’ by Toto, AC/DC’s ‘Highway to Hell’, and hair metal classic ‘Here I Go Again’ by Whitesnake.

The survey, carried out by OnePoll, asked 1,000 UK motorists to pick their favourite fives songs from a list of 29, while also giving them the choice of “none of the above”.
