I knew it could be done!

When I was a kid (and this time the story is for real), we spent a significant amount of time traveling down the highway in the car. I noticed that the hum of the tires sounded different on different pavement, and speculated that one could use that to build a kind of "musical highway." I also figured that it could be designed to help keep drivers awake on long trips, and that it could also help regulate speed.

Well, the Japanese have beat me to it. I'm so tickled.

Let's try that again, but without the grammatical errors...

So what song do you think Montana should engrave into its highway system to keep its hundreds (thousands?) of sleepy drivers awake?
