Bat Out Of Hell 'top driving tune'

Meat Loaf's Bat Out Of Hell has been voted motorists' favourite driving tune, according to an AA/Populus survey.

Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody was in second place, with Abba's Dancing Queen third in the AA/Populus poll of nearly 16,000 AA members.

Two Chris Rea hits - Driving Home for Christmas and Road to Hell - were in fourth and fifth place in the table.

Another Queen hit - Don't Stop Me Now - which was in eighth place, was the favourite song for those aged 18 to 34, while Dancing Queen was most popular with those aged over 65.

AA president Edmund King said: "There is a long tradition of music and driving. Music can help reduce boredom and frustration on long, congested journeys.

"Our members seem to be nostalgic for the good old days when petrol was 17p a litre (78.20p a gallon) when Bat Out of Hell was released in 1977. Bohemian Rhapsody comes second in the chart and, perhaps, the opening lines (Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide, No escape from reality) sums up the thoughts of today's motorist faced by increased tax, hold-ups, potholes and sky-high fuel prices."
