SINGING IN THE CAR

If you want to be a safer driver while you're tooling down the highway with the windows down -- sing while you're cruising. Yes, you may be spending four bucks a gallon, but drivers who sing along to the car radio or music player are safer drivers, according to a recent survey from the University of Sheffield. Why? Music helps to soothe drivers, making them more relaxed and helping them to feel calmer. 63% of drivers who have not had an accident in four or more years say they listen to music while driving. No matter what type of music you choose, you want to be able to sing along without having to think too hard about it.

The top three best driving tunes: 
  1. "They Can't Take That Away From Me," by Frank Sinatra 
  2. "Don't Cha Wanna Ride," by Joss Stone 
  3. "Canon in D," by Pachelbel 

Three tunes to avoid while driving: 

  1. "Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1," by Edward Elgar 
  2. "Firestarter," by Prodigy 
  3. "Kim," by Eminem 

From a Harris survey conducted for hotwire.com comes this poll of Americans' favorite vacation theme songs. Nearly 2500 people took part. Here are the results:
  1. 26% - "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay," Otis Redding 
  2. 21% - "Margaritaville," Jimmy Buffett 
  3. 13% - "Kokomo," The Beach Boys 
  4. 10% - "Vacation," The Go Go's 
  5. 10% - "Fly Away," Lenny Kravitz 
  6. 8% - "Holiday," Madonna 
  7. 8% - "Come Sail Away," Styx 
  8. 5% - "Miami," Will Smith
