The ultimate Bank Holiday Drive playlist

If you're heading somewhere on a mini break this Bank Holiday weekend, you'll already have braced yourself for the travel. Come train or car, you'll need some music that gets you through the inevitable delays and traffic jams.  Not to mention entertaining the kids so they keep relatively tantrum-free the entire journey. 

There's only one thing for it. Karaoke! You know it makes sense. Nothing beats the power of belting out a banger, with the whole car joining in. With these tunes, you'll soon forget about the destination - it will be the journey that you'll love the most.

1. Bill Withers - Lovely Day

This song is the ultimate feel-good tune. Hold that note 'dayyyyyyyyyy' as long as you can! 

2. Boys II Men - End Of The Road 

You get extra points with this one by staring out of the car window as if you're in a music video.

3. Stereophonics - Dakota 

You will feel all the feels playing this on the road - if you've got the roof down too, you're winning at life. 

4. 4 Non Blondes - What's Up

For when the road seems never ending and there are no services near by...take a deep breath and say hey, what's going on. 

5. Journey - Don't Stop Believin'

If the roads get blocked and the car comes to a standstill, this will give you the inner strength to wait it out. Damn that closed junction. 

6. Mark Ronson feat. Amy Winehouse - Valerie 

With that fast tempo and fun lyrics, Valerie will never fail to pick you up.

7. Bon Jovi - Livin' On A Prayer

Wind the windows down and shout this as loud as you can. We're positive other cars will join in if you persevere. 

8. Pocahontas (Disney) - Colours Of The Wind

We challenge you to find someone who doesn't enjoy singing along to Disney. You can't. They don't exist. 

9. U2 - Beautiful Day 

Even if it's not exactly a beautiful day outside the car doors, you'll be feeling all 'sunshine and happiness' by singing this track. 

10. Whitney Houston - One Moment In Time

A decent drive would not be decent without an appearance from the ultimate diva. 

11. Demi Lovato - Skyscraper

Demi may be new to the diva scene, but boy does this track hit all the right spots. Loud and proud please. 

12. Sheryl Crow - If It Makes You Happy

It absolutely does make you happy. Especially when the whole car joins in on the chorus. 

13. Sia - Chandelier 

Sia is Queen of epic singalong songs. Chandelier is a must-sing on your travels. 

14. The Little Mermaid (Disney) - Under The Sea

This song is a child pleaser, a mood lifter and a long journey filler. 

15. David Guetta feat. Sia - Titanium 

It categorically doesn't matter if you cannot hit that top note. Sing it like you're a popstar anyway.
