Most Relaxing Song. Ever.

Adrenaline addicts beware – Marconi Union has crafted the ultimate yin for your yang.  This British minimalist music trio teamed up with the British Academy of Sound Therapy to produce the most relaxing song ever made.   That’s right.  Ever.  Play this to cut down on that lack-of-snow rage and mellow out for a bit…at least until the next storm hits.

The eight minute track is called “Weightless” and logged over 60,000 downloads in the first day and a half it was posted for free download.  According to scientists at the Mindlab institution (a commercial ‘neuromarketing’ company) it induced a 65 per cent reduction in overall anxiety and brought test subjects resting pulse rates to a level 35 per cent lower than their usual resting rates. The song features guitar, piano and manipulated field recordings and is punctuated throughout by low tones that supposedly induce a trance-like state.

Go ahead and throw out your home recordings of babbling brooks and falling rain.  Give your secret Enya collection to the crazy lady that lives next door.  Relax and enter the comforting, warm fold of the future.
