According to Q Magazine, Adele is "the worst flier." But, a new study says her own music could be the cure for in-flight nerves.

Research by anxiety psychologist Dr. Becky Spelman of London's Private Therapy Clinic uncovered songs that can comfort fliers. They tend to be slower tunes that lower the heart rate and blood pressure - or have emotive lyrics that create a connection with the listener.

At the top of the list is Adele's Someone Like You. Fliers might also want to listen to As I Lay Me Down by Sophie B. Hawkins, The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole, or tunes from artists ranging from the Red Hot Chillli Peppers and Beyonce to Mozart. Here's part of the playlist for you to listen to on demand (breathe deep and relax):

Adele - Someone Like You

Sophie B. Hawkins - As I Lay Me Down

Coldplay - Paradise

Red Hot Chilli Peppers - Scar Tissue

Beyonce - Flaws and All

Enya - Orinoco Flow
