Everyone has their favorite driving songs. For me, it’s The Who’s “Eminence Front” and Tom Cochrane’s “Life is a Highway.” Sometimes we get a little too into a song when we’re cruising down the road. That’s just another form of distracted and dangerous driving.
According to Best Life, the UK driving school Pass Me Fast has compiled a list of the most dangerous songs to listen to while driving. They used data from Spotify, judging songs by how high energy and danceable they are, as well as how emotionally charged they are.
Topping the list as the most distracting song to drive to is OutKast’s “Hey Ya!” That makes sense. It’s hard not to want to “shake it like a Polaroid picture,” but you definitely shouldn’t if you’re behind the wheel.
Bon Jovi may actually be the bigger offender. Those guys made the top 15 twice with “You Give Love a Bad Name” and “Livin’ on a Prayer.” The complete list is below. Be careful out there.
