[ # ] Staying Alive has healing powers
October 19th, 2008 under Music

Researchers have found that the 103 beats per minute in the song Staying Alive can help keep people alive according to NME. The recommended chest compression is 100 during CPR, so doing it Staying Alive can help a person do it properly.

The study by the University of Illinois College of Medicine saw doctors and students performing CPR on mannequins while listening to ‘Stayin’ Alive’. They were asked to time chest compressions with the beat. Then five weeks later, they did the same drill without the music, but were told to think of the song while doing compressions.

Wonder if that was what the Bee Gees were thinking when they came up with that song?
