Marconi Union – Weightless

I forget when I found this article Neuroscience Says Listening to This Song Reduces Anxiety by Up to 65 Percent.  I’m not sure of the published date on the article and I don’t remember when I saved the link.

Does it really work?  I don’t know for sure.  But it is calming and that’s always a plus.

There’s also a 10 hour version linked here if you’re interested.
