    according to Britain's RAC Foundation for Motoring, Richard Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" is the number 1 tune NOT to play while driving...their research shows that loud music can cause accidents, and evidently that piece is the most danerous...the song had also topped their list of most dangerous songs two years ago, when the issue was the peril of fast tempo...while i can sort of understand this, in an abstract way, i am amazed that this is the most dangerous piece of music to drive to...i can think of dozens of songs that are both louder and faster...go figure...here is their top five list of most dangerous songs to drive to:

    1) Richard Wagner - Ride of the Valkyries
    2) Giuseppe Verdi - Dies Irae (from Requiem)
    3) The Prodigy - Firestarter
    4) Basement Jaxx - Red Alert
    5) Faithless - Insomnia

    Their top five safest songs to play while driving:

    1) Norah Jones - Come Away With Me
    2) Gary Jules - Mad World
    3) Lemar - Another Day
    4) The Sugarbabes - Too Lost In You
    5) boy band Blue - Breathe Easy

    so now we all know what to play while driving...or not.

    I doubt the science and/or research behind that is very sound

    Wanna know the worst song I've ever listened to driving? "Blue" by Yokko Kanno when I got off work and had wayyyy to much of my last cigarette, I almost fell asleep
