Britain’s driving tune of summer 2013 was … Bat out of Hell. The 1977 Meatloaf classic was blaring from car stereos this summer – at least according to ferry company DFDS who surveyed over 2,000 (presumably middle-aged) Brits about their summer driving soundtrack. And if they weren’t screeching “I’m gonna hit the highway like a battering ram” at the top of their voices, they may have been doing the fandango to the even older Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, which came second. Daft Punk’s Get Lucky, one of only two contemporary tunes on the list, came fourth; and of course Dancing Queen and Hotel California also appeared in the top 10.

So, what were you listening to on holiday? Tell us about your summer 2013 soundtrack in the comments below (songs from the 21st century are allowed)
