Is This Song Guaranteed To Make You Sleep?

Here's a first… a British band called Marconi Union teamed up with sound therapists to create a track called Weightless, dubbed the "most relaxing tune ever." So much so, that the team behind the creation strongly advises against driving while listening to it (source). Supposedly, it's even more relaxing than listening to songs by Enya and compositions by Mozart!

No doubt, this track is definitely relaxing and serene but I think a lot of ambient music offers the same experience. From Brian Eno's Music for Airports to William Basinski's Watermusic, there are countless examples of calming music great to fall asleep to. So I'm not quite sure what makes Weightless that special (not to say I don't like it, I do!)

With a staggering 20 million views, this track obviously resonates with a lot of people and you might feel the same way. And if eight minutes isn't long enough, make sure to also check out this 10-hour loop.
