The best of Queen always goes down well esp We Will Rock You, We are the Champions, Bohemian Rhapsody and Somebody to Love.

We also do Madness, Ian Dury and some general pop.

No summer driving playlist would be complete without We're All Going On a Summer Holiday!

What do you like?! On my summer playlist I have naice twinkly indie stuff. Chvrches, Dan Croll, Paper Bird, Oh Land, Rilo Kiley, that type of thing, then I have oldie sing along things like Son of a Preacher Man, Summer of '69, y'know the drill.

If you want no misogyny, don't be fooled by In The Summertime by Mungo Jerry. Ive fallen out with that song after googling the lyricssad

Thanks for all the great suggestions. Keep them coming.

On previous car CDs we have Beatles & trad children's like Puff the magic dragon. My own taste would be pulp & Leonard Cohen but that's not really happy child friendly music.
