'Don't Stop Me Now' is the favourite driving song of both men and women but the list differs after that with women choosing 'Bohemian Rhapsody' (2nd); 'Shut Up and Drive' (3rd); 'Bat out of Hell' (4th) and 'Fast Car' (5th) while men chose 'Bat out of Hell' (2nd); 'Bohemian Rhapsody' (3rd); 'Ace of Spades' (4th) and 'Dakota' (5th).
Gareth Kloet, Head of Car Insurance at Confused.com said: "Having music on in the car has grown into a modern tradition and while we would, of course, encourage all drivers to concentrate on the road, we like happy drivers who enjoy being in their cars. Just make sure to hide away your valuable music equipment when leaving your car as it can be an invitation to thieves."
