"Stayin' Alive" is the Perfect Song to Administer CPR

Seventies disco song "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees could very well save your life one day. Turns out, the song has just the right tempo for administering CPR.

The NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital and advertising agency Seiden have released a Spotify playlist of songs with around 100 beats per minute (bpm) tempo, which is considered the ideal rate for administering chest compressions during CPR.

In the playlist are apt life saving musical hits like "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees as mentioned above, "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor, and "Rock Your Body" by Justin Timberlake. More perplexing, however, is the inclusion of "Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen ... Someone's got a morbid sense of humor!
