I continue to read the results of studies showing that listening to the music of Bach while driving is dangerous. Researchers claim that since Bach’s music is so complex and all encompassing, the driver’s attention is more focused on listening and decoding than on actually driving.
Sigh… I don’t know if I can change my evil ways. Bach gets me through traffic slowdowns, boring stretches of road, storms and then some!
If I get pulled over for speeding while listening to my favorite cantata, partita or suite, I’ll just have to confess: “Yes, officer, I admit it. I've been driving under the influence of J.S. Bach.”
