Songs That Save Lives

Music is powerful stuff.

Music can save lives.

Spotify has created a playlist for first responders to do CPR too. New York Presbyterian Hospital shared the list because all of the 40 songs have one thing in common: they’re at 100 beats-per-minute, which is the proper beat to do CPR to.

The Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive” is at number one and that one actually did save somebody’s life last year. A subway worker in New York was electrocuted and his co-worker did CPR to the beat of “Stayin’ Alive” and the guy did stay alive!

Lots of Kool songs are on the list too like The Black Crowes’ “Hard To Handle,” Justin Timberlake’s “Rock Your Body,” Tracy Chpaman’s “Fast Car,” Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” and lots more.

Check out the full list here and maybe keep it handy if you have to give CPR and save someone’s life one day!
