Scientists discover most relaxing tune ever
Sound therapists and Manchester band Marconi Union compiled the song. Scientists played it to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay.
Weightless works by using specific rhythms, tones, frequencies and intervals to relax the listener. A continuous rhythm of 60 BPM causes the brainwaves and heart rate to synchronise with the rhythm: a process known as ‘entrainment’. Low underlying bass tones relax the listener and a low whooshing sound with a trance-like quality takes the listener into an even deeper state of calm.
Dr David Lewis, one of the UK’s leading stress specialists said: “‘Weightless’ induced the greatest relaxation – higher than any of the other music tested. Brain imaging studies have shown that music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those regions responsible for processing sound but also ones associated with emotions.”
The study - commissioned by bubble bath and shower gel firm Radox Spa - found the song was even more relaxing than a massage, walk or cup of tea. So relaxing is the tune, apparently, that people are being Rex advised against listening to it while driving.
The top 10 most relaxing tunes were: 1. Marconi Union - Weightless 2. Airstream - Electra 3. DJ Shah - Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix) 4. Enya - Watermark 5. Coldplay - Strawberry Swing 6. Barcelona - Please Don’t Go 7. All Saints - Pure Shores 8. AdelevSomeone Like You 9. Mozart - Canzonetta Sull’aria 10. Cafe Del Mar - We Can Fly
This is so interesting.
WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF YOU COMBINED IT WITH RAINY MOOD?
I just combined it with Rainy Mood.
IT’S FUCKING AMAZING.
holy shit i fell asleep to this last night and had the greatest sleep ive had in fucking ages
Let me just say I have a heart problem and fast beat rhythms can bother and stress the hell out of me if I’m in a downer mood already (also fuck people who play loud bassy quick paced music at midnight/1am on a weeknight)…
…in short… oh my god. This is so good. I could sleep forever. I’m gonna download this and keep it on my ipod (and if anyone knows how to merge the rainymood and this MP3 into one I would be forever grateful).
at first i was like challenge accepted but then Galileo happened
the endi ng oH MYG OD
All i could imagine was loads of chipmunks all appearing from their trees and then towards the end thousands of them walking all the forest floor in lines
i… i have no words for this.
I had the same “challenge accepted” attitude, and succeeded until the Galileos happened.
FUCK YES SUCCESS.

imogen heap // goodnight and go
skipping beats, blushing cheeks I am struggling
daydreaming, bed scenes in the corner café
and then i’m left in bits recovering tectonic tremblings
you get me every time
