hypermiling music?

what is everyones favorite music for fe., anyone do any a-b-a tests, beetwen slayer/bethovan/98degrees. etc?

i'm having trouble with an apropriate compromize beetween a really good relaxed mood, and getting too into the music singing along and missing my eoc. opportunities

im trying an arlo guthrie/bob dylan mix right now. like a rolling stone. its looking promising

I have a pretty high concentration factor going so I listen to only the sound of the road.

The soundtrack from the game Mafia is my favorite hypermiling music. The cars are so slow and underpowered when you start out in the game, it feels just as if you were hypermiling. Unintentional DWL at WOT going up hills...lol

I have to listen to something instrumental and mellow. Otherwise I start driving too faster and aggressive. I usually prefer classical, but lately have trying latin jazz and neo classical tracks.
