Van drivers may have a mean and nasty reputation, universally known for affording no quarter on the road, hard-driving hitmen of highway and hard shoulder, heartless hard nuts who’d cut you up as soon as look at you.

But wait… according to a fascinating load of old b*llocks c*bbled together by PR numpties working for beaver-obsessed commercial insurance comparison site constrictorquote.com, commercial vehicle drivers are super-keen on girly music.

What’s more, there’s nothing 92% of them like better than a top-vol singalong to the likes of single ladies advocate Beyoncy Cent, Aduwh of Rolling in the Deep fame, or Curly Ray (Call Me Mable) Jetson.

When asked about their listening tastes behind the wheel, van drivers’ clear favourite turned out to be Idina Menzel’s unforgettable cold-things-themed anthem Let it Go from the blockbusting Disney movie Frozen.

Next time you’re revving impatiently at a red light beside a WVM, take a closer look and you’ll probably see him gleefully belting out classic lyrics like “Don’t let them in, don’t let them see, Be the good girl you always have to be” from the Frozen hit, or perhaps “I got gloss on my lips, a man on my hips, Got me tighter in my Dereon jeans” from Beyoncy’s Put a Ring on It.

When they’re in the mood for a slightly butcher singalong, they sometimes go for something like Pharrell Williams’ Happy or Stirshit’s depressingly self-fulfilling Nothing’s Going to Stop us Now.

All of which makes Bankstone News wonder exactly how constrictorquote.com’s PR people phrased that ‘which of these do you most like singing along to’ question. Could there, perchance, have been an element of multiple choice about it?

Just saying.
