Meatloaf Voted Driver's Choice

Meatloaf's rock anthem "Bat Out Of Hell" has been voted the all-time best driving song by British motorists.

The 1979 track came top of a poll of more than 2,000 motorists in the U.K.

Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" came in at number two, with Steppenwolf's "Born To Be Wild" at number three and "Don't Stop Me Now," also by Queen, at number four.

Oops. Left out

"No Particular Place to Go"-Chuck Berry

Riding along in my automobile

My baby beside me at the wheel

I stole a kiss at the turn of a mile

my curiosity running wild

crusin' and playin' the radio

with no particular place to go

Riding along in my automobile

I's anxious to tell her the way I feel

So I told her softly and sincere

and she leaned and whispered in my ear

cuddlin' more and drivin' slow

with no particular place to go

No particular place to go

So we parked way out on ko-ko-mo

The night was young and the moon was gold

So we both decided to take a stroll

Can you image the way I felt

I couldn't unfasten her safety belt

Riding along in my calaboose

Still trying to get her belt a-loose

all the way home I held a grudge

for the safety belt that wouldn't budge

Crusin' and playing the radio

with no particular place to go

Also "Route 66"-Nat King Cole

J. Geils Band live, "Hard Driving Man" into "Whammer Jammer" is awesome for pushing the speed envelope. Blues Brother's version of "I Can't Turn You Loose" makes me want to be on the open highway with a lot of cops behind me.
