Christmas is here, and KKLZ always gives you the gift of non-stop Christmas music for Christmas day. Be careful though. Frank Sinatra and Mariah Carey can be a danger.
Christmas, and holiday music is supposed to give you that warm, festive, tingly feeling, but apparently some songs can do the opposite, and they can cause you to drive like a complete idiot – and we don’t need more of that on the roads, let alone the Las Vegas roads, where tourists and locals seem to make up their own rules of the road as they go along.
A recent study by The National Library of Medicine found that songs with beats per minute (BPMs) over 120 are linked with increased dangerous driving, which increases the risk of accidents. It’s all based on BPM, or beats per minute.
Think of EDM, or “house music.” That comes in at around 126-132 BPM. It gets you moving, you’re having fun – but is that what you want in the car, while you’re driving? Maybe – but it can be dangerous. And some of your favorite Christmas songs could be the culprit!
The BPM of some of the world’s most iconic Christmas songs are some of the most dangerous ones to drive to. You’re driving with Frank Sinatra cranked up, because that’s what you listened to as a kid – not knowing that one day, it could be a danger!
You might be surprised at the top five – especially number one. I was shocked – SHOCKED!
Here’s your top five in descending dangerous order:
