According to scientists, the award for The World’s Most Relaxing Song goes to a band called Marconi Union for their song titled Weightless. Studies at the Mindlab Institute showed that the song induced a 65 percent reduction in overall anxiety and also brought the test subjects’ resting pulse rates down 35 percent lower than their usual resting rates. The song is also marked throughout by low tones that can help induce a trance-like or ‘zoning out’ state. Might not want to listen to it on your drive home from work.
