The Most Relaxing Song Ever
By Brooke Benjamin
A British band has created what’s being dubbed as “the most relaxing song in the world.” A recent study found that the song Weightless by Marconi Union “induced the greatest relaxation – higher than any of the other music tested.”
Scientists from Radox spa determined this by conducting a study with 40 female participants. Each subject was asked to complete a difficult puzzle in a small space of time in order to heighten stress levels. The ladies were then played a set of songs while their heart rate, blood pressure, brain activity and breathing were monitored. The study found that Weightless was 11 per cent more relaxing than any other song – even making some of the lab subjects drowsy.
