Best And Worst Songs For Driving?

A recent study conducted by Confused.com and London Metropolitan University professor Simon Moore found that some songs actually encourage safe driving. The list of songs, which includes “Come Away With Me” by Norah Jones, “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz, “The Scientist” by Coldplay, and “Tiny Dancer” by Elton John, was analyzed by Professor Moore, who concluded that the songs contain qualities that help drivers operate their vehicles safely.

These qualities include the optimum music volume for driving, which is 55 to 65 decibels and the optimum tempo, which should mimic the human heartbeat at around 60 to 80 beats per minute. Confused.com, which also offers a free app that monitors your driving performance, created a Spotify playlist of the 50 “ultimate” songs for driving.

You’ll find the YouTube video Confused.com created to explain how they conducted the safe driving experiment

While we can guarantee we play these safe songs (and others on the list), it’s up to you to keep the volume just right and to not get too carried away as you jam on the highways!
