Wired reports that the Bee Gee’s “Stayin’ Alive” has the right tempo for performing CPR. It’s at 103 beats per minute, and the American Heart Association says one must perform the chest compressions of CPR at 100 beats per minute for it to be effective.
Thank God that I can totally sing “Stayin’ Alive” with the correct beat. And though its title is very apt for CPR, two other songs with 100 beats per minute also have appropriate titles: Backstreet Boys’ “Quit Playing Games With My Heart” and Mariah Carey’s “Heartbreaker”. Brilliant, isn’t it?
