Dangerously relaxing song

How could a song be dangerous? Here’s is what this newspaper article has to say:

It slows your breathing and reduces brain activity to such an extent that “Weightless,” written by Manchester band Marconi Union, is said to be the ‘most relaxing song ever’. The eight-minute track is so effective at inducing sleep, motorists have now been warned they should not listen to it whilst driving.

    I know I consider anything by Coldplay or Steely Dan highly dangerous – I hear them and want to grab the nearest club and start swinging at the noise. Coldplay is NOT relaxing to me – I spend an unhealthy amount of time asking out loud why they get airtime on rock stations…and then switch to NPR.
