Scientists have determined that listening to certain music while driving can improve your performance on the road. The optimum tempo for a road trip song was found to be between 60-80 beats per minute—mimicking the human heartbeat—including artists like Norah Jones, Coldplay, Radiohead, and Bon Iver.
