UK Scientists Find Most Relaxing Song of All Time


The most relaxing song of all time.

"It slows your breathing and reduces brain activity to such an extent that
Weightless, written by Manchester band Marconi Union, is said to be the
'most relaxing song ever'.

The eight-minute track is so effective at inducing sleep, motorists have now been warned they should not listen to it whilst driving.

The band worked with sound therapists to get advice on how to make the most effective use of
harmonies, rhythms and bass lines. The result on listeners is a slowing of the heart rate, reduced blood pressure and lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol." (Daily Mail, David Gerges)

Marconi Union are a British musical trio Richard Talbot, Jamie Crossley and Duncan Meadows,
with strong links to the Manchester based DOTCA arts collective. Their music incorporates elements of electronica, ambient, jazz and dub.
