Here's a dubious but highly entertaining study: The BBC reports that the 1977 Bee Gees' hit Stayin' Alive might help you to stay alive. The song's meter is 103 beats per minute, and CPR ideally compresses the chest 100 times per minute. Many people are uncertain of the correct rhythm for chest compression during CPR, and practicing to the song's beat could triple cardiac arrest survival rates, according to an author of a recent study. Doctors and students who trained to the song performed above the recommended rate, which is imperfect but better than performing below it.
