A team of scientists and sound therapists claims to have found the most relaxing song ever. In an experiment with the Manchester band Marconi Union, the scientists were able to create a track more relaxing than Coldplay or, more impressively, Enya. Listen to “Weightless” above and drift away into eternal chill. The track’s 60 BPM is said to trigger “entrainment,” the synchronization of brainwaves and heart rate. As a bonus, they even compiled a top 10 list of the most relaxing tunes ever:

1. Marconi Union and Lyz Cooper – 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
