We bet that you have never heard music quite like this before! This section of the Subaru highway leading up to Mount Fuji have rumble strips in the middle of the road that have been spaced at certain intervals to play a song. It's very unique and impressive - take a listen! "Miagete goran yoru no hoshi wo" by Kyu Sakamoto is the name of the tune. They should really incorporate more of these into roads! This is one memorable moment that you do not want to miss!

This has to be one of the most unique roadway in the world! Who would have thought that you could create music in such a manner! Rumble strips are usually used to alert the driver of the vehicle if they are drifting onto the shoulder of the road too much. However, this looks to be another acceptable use for them!

Now a days dash cams are becoming more and more popular to be in cars. They are used to capture unique moments in cars for good or for worse. This video right here is one of those unique moments. It is videos like these that dash cams from Amazom are selling so well! Who knows, maybe you could capture a good, unique moment in your car!

Two years ago, the New Mexico Department of Transportation decided to spice up a particularly desolate stretch of Route 66 between Albuquerque and Tijeras by adding similar grooves in the road that will play music when you drive over them. Just outside of Tijeras, New Mexico is one of only two "singing roads" in the United States. Installed and paid for by National Geographic as part of their 'Crowd Control' series, it plays 'America the Beautiful' when you do the speed limit.

      They changed the distance between the grooves in the road to alter the pitch to create different sounds, and then grouped them together to play a song. It's kind of a like a life-sized, straight record (instead of the round ones of the past). Make sense?
