This Song Is Called the Most Relaxing Tune Ever Written

Marconi Union's "Weightless" has been called the "most relaxing song of all time" by scientists who worked with the band to create its mental and physical effects.

According to an article in the Telegraph, the eight minute track is so effective at inducing sleep it should not be listened to while driving.

Sound therapists say that carefully arranged harmonies, rhythms and bass lines help to slow the heart rate, reduce blood pressure and lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Tests showed it "induced a 65 per cent reduction in overall anxiety" and brought subjects "to a level 35 per cent lower than their usual resting rates."
