The music you listen to on your car radio can influence the way you drive. The key for safe driving while listening to music is to match a song to the beat of a normal heart  A normal heartbeat is usually sixty to eighty beats per minute. Among songs that qualify are “I don’t Want To Miss A Thing” by Aerosmith, and Tiny Dancer by Elton John.

According to The Telegraph, a recent study at London Metro University  found that songs that have a fast beat cause the driver to brake harder and accelerate faster. Fast songs also cause the driver to concentrate more on the song, than on driving.

Types of music were also studied and found that heavy metal caused the fastest and most dangerous driving while classical caused the most erratic driving. So, what are the safest songs to listen to while driving?

1. Come Away With Me – Norah Jones

2. Billionaire Feat. Bruno Mars – Travie McCoy

3. I’m Yours – Jason Mraz

4. The Scientist – Coldplay

5. Tiny Dancer – Elton John

6. Cry Me a River – Justin Timberlake

7. I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing – Aerosmith

8. Karma Police – Radiohead

9. Never Had a Dream Come True – S Club 7
