UK Scientists Clinically Determined The Most Relaxing Song Ever Made. Listen Here!


(OrganicJar) In a study that may come as a stunning New Age challenge to artists like Yanni and Enya, a group of UK scientists have gotten together and clinically determined the most relaxing song ever made.

The track, titled ‘Weightless’ and performed by a Manchester-based band named Marconi Union, was described as “even more relaxing than a massage, walk or cup of tea.”  The study found ‘Weightless’ to be 11 percent more relaxing than songs by Adele, Coldplay or Mozart.

Lyz Cooper, founder of the British Academy for Sound Therapy, worked with the band to create the song, which she described as “ideal for putting on at the end of a stressful day and unwinding.”

Cooper said, “The song makes use of many musical principles that have been shown to individually have a calming effect. The harmonic intervals — or gaps between notes — have been chosen to create a feeling of euphoria and comfort. And there is no repeating melody, which allows your brain to completely switch off because you are no longer trying to predict what is coming next.”

Dr. David Lewis-Hodgson, one of the scientists who helped conduct the study, even went so far as to warn, “I would advise against driving while listening to the song because it could be dangerous.”

So the next time you’re feeling stressed out and craving a little break from our overwhelmingly fast-paced modern world, just remember: eight minutes of clinically proven relaxation are just a mouse click away.

  1. Aside from the fact different people find different things (and sounds) relaxing, I’d never find this piece relaxing because there is so little modulation in the sound – it’s pure boredom. This doesn’t make it ‘musical’ but what is better termed as ‘ambient noise’ – and if you are the sort who requires an ‘ambient’ background to relax, try looking up the ambient noise for the USS Enterprise’s engine’s on Youtube. There’s a video that lasts 24 hours of nothing but subtle engine noise.

  2. I'm falling into a deep sleep…byyyyyeeeeeeee…wait a minute..this music is actually kinda annoying if ya ask me.

  3. Sorry, just don't find this at all relaxing. The background is actually fairly grating and unpleasant.

  4. I'm going back to bed now, LOL : ) — Seriously, very nice…

  5. What a total load of bo##ocks! This is actually very very annoying. 1. it's not music it's noise. 2. intervals are just about non-existent. Ah never mind, what do scientists know anyway? They managed to work out how to blow up the planet, so they must be right, right?

  6. Wow,the body feel weightless…amazing,good for meditation.

  7. NOT GREAT. too mechanical

  8. annoying, that´s the word. Not relaxing at all. I think this is much more relaxing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ti_-Ugiut-4

  9. What a load of tosh!Scientific study,with its reductionistic paradigm excluding emotions as a component,is an incomplete approach to music as it affects us on an emotional level…

  10. This sounds like every other “spa” soundtrack on the planet. Not impressed. As a massage therapist, I try NOT to listen to this genre all day. Very boring.

  11. surprised by the negative responses to the track. ambient, for some, is a great genre to calm the nerves. there’s no emotional attachment as the other songs in the study would relate to. if you haven’t, listen to it on speakers with bass response and it will become clear why it could have a calming effect. the slow bass kicks are reminiscent to that of a heart beat, which is an instant sound of relaxation. there are synthetic elements, or ‘mechanical,’ but its hard to perform a study on music since everyone is biased to what they find calming in their own way.
