Rocking road

I recently discovered that there are a few roads around the world that play music when you drive on them. Precisely placed rumble strips vibrate against your wheels to produce the notes.

Here's a video of one of these "musical roads," located along Route 66 in New Mexico. If you drive exactly 45 mph, you hear the end of "America the Beautiful."

Interesting fact: If you drive this road in reverse it tells you that Satan is real, and he's running for president.

The band OK Go took the musical road idea to the extreme in their video "Needing/Getting," and the results are awesome.
