3) Eva Cassidy - Album: Songbird

I have an extra copy of Melody's album. PM me your address I'll courier it.

Drive safe.

Hi
Listening to music is extremely beneficial at any point of time (except if you are a Doc and telling your patient about lymphomyosarcoma of the descending colon, HEEE!!HEEE!!)
There again is a school of thought that whilst driving listening to meliflous music is good for people within and without the car. Research has shown that Rap can rock you off and may increase road rage.

If you really ask me, this is the song that should have got Rahman the Oscar. Not the crappy "Jai Ho"!! (No disrespect to Rahman here)

One of the best songs that you can listen to is the OST of fast & furious : Tokyo drift. Mind blowing. If you have good ICE in the car, nothing like it at all

My kind of music!

I've been hooked to Porcupine Tree for sometime now. Plenty of Floyd influence in their music, which is a good thing! For those who haven't listened to them yet, I suggest you give these songs a listen:

Trains - Sound Of Muzak - Blackest Eyes - Hatesong - Arriving Somewhere But Not Here - Russia On Ice - Start Of Something Beautiful - Radioactive Toy - Nine Cats - Lightbulb Sun - Open Car

Fantastic driving tracks!
