The Independent has reported that ‘Thriller’ has been voted The Most Inspiring Album Of All Time by British people and has had the biggest impact on their lives.
Positioned in second place is the Beatles with ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ and Abba in third position with ‘Gold: Greatest Hits.’
The poll of 2,000 adults was commissioned by Hyundai ahead of today’s Hyundai Mercury Prize.
President and CEO of Hyundai, Tony Whitehorn said of the poll;
“These results are a great example of exactly why we are a title sponsor of the Hyundai Mercury Prize. Music means so much to so many people in the UK, creating memories, inspiring changes and lifting moods. It’s so often a key part of the driving experience, too, with a quarter of those polled saying that it’s while driving that they listen to most of their music. I’m sure we can all relate to sitting in the car listening to the end of your favourite song, even as you’ve reached your destination.”
