There's nothing that sets the mood when you're driving down that back mountain road like a freshly pressed mix cd you whooped up on your mac before heading out. But with so many genres of music, what is the best; slow your role gangsta, euro style techno, or Norwegian yodeling chorus?

Well first off, obviously this eternal question depends on tastes. There are definitely some styles like classical that while may be relaxing after a long days work will most likely put you right to sleep. Where as the steady beat of many techno or dance songs can be hypnotizing as you forge through those ever curving roads. Many popular dance artists are Benny Benassi, David Guetta, and Daft Punk.

Another uplifting and motivating genre weekend warriors crank up is the classic rock. While most of the artists are geezers by now, their music still rocks. Examples of some good classic rock bands that drive are ZZ Tops, Scorpions, and Jimi Hendrix.

There's no other music that will give you that laugh in the face of danger feeling than some good hip hop. Right off the bat you think of some hard hitting Ice Cube, or more beat steady Mos Def. Nortorious BIG always has some good driving beats.

Then again if you're like me, you like a little of everything. Thanks to the advent of MP3 players and head units, you can make playlists of songs or just put it on shuffle and be surprised with whatever song comes up. But just remember when creating these playlists to Never Live Life Half Fast!
