…Bee Gees can really keep you stayin’ alive?

Here’s a tip that could save a life: Apparently, the Bee Gees’ 1977 hit “Stayin’ Alive” is the perfect song to pace yourself with when doing CPR.

The song’s 103 beats per minute is close enough to the 100 chest compressions per minute recommended by the American Heart Association, and it’s more appropriate than the similarly tempo’ed song from Queen, “Another One Bites the Dust”.
