Uh oh Written by earwormopera According to NPR people who listen to classical music in the car drive erratically. Apparently one of the safest things to listen to is Coldplay. I’ll take the car accident instead, thanks.

Otherwise my main choice is classical music (Opera, symphony, chamber) and I usually don’t find that my driving suffers. On the other hand, I was listening to a bootleg of Idomeneo with JK this morning and drove right past my exit. oops.

(In my case, I forgot to turn where I was supposed to and had to go the long way round.) LikeLike Reply Leave a comment Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
