Study suggests to listen to the Coldplay Songs while Driving
 Coldplay keeps you safe on the Road

You're sure wearing a seat belt, avoiding texting and checking your blindspots while driving but you might also want to listen to Coldplay to stay safe on the road.

You read it right, the British band's tunes have been concluded as soothing and could help you avoid accidents while driving.

According to the London Metropolitan University professor Simon Moore, the optimum music volume for driving is 55 to 65 decibels, while the ideal tempo should mimic the human heartbeat at around 60 to 80 beats per minute.

And Coldplay's "The Scientist" topped the list of "ultimate safe driving songs" compiled by Confused.com, the creator of driving app MotorMate based on Moore's findings.

The other songs that landed on the safe-driving playlist includes: Norah Jones' "Come Away With Me," Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours," Radiohead's "Karma Police" and Elton John's "Tiny Dancer." For more, check out the video above.

The finding also cautioned against listening to music that is noisy, upbeat and increases your heart rate. An Example of such songs would be Black Eyed Peas' "Hey Mama," which topped Confused.com's list of top 10 dangerous driving songs.
