This Song May Save Your Life

Doctors at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria found that listening to or singing the BeeGees’ Stayin’ Alive while giving CPR helps people perform chest compressions at the proper speed, since the ideal rate should be 100 per minute and the song is 103 beats per minute. Before discovering this ideal song they tried and rejected Oingo Boingo’s Dead Man’s Party, Roberta Flack’s Killing Me Softly, and anything by the Grateful Dead.
