Beyonce and the Bee Gee’s top New York-Presbyterian’s Spotify playlist of songs that are the perfect beat for performing CPR.
These songs give new meaning to “Stayin’ Alive.”
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital just dropped a Spotify mix of dance hits that are the perfect beat for performing CPR.
Of course, the Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive” has long set the standard of 100 beats-per-minute songs that are just the right tempo to do 100 chest compressions per minute to get someone’s heart pumping again. It was immortalized that Season 11 “Grey’s Anatomy” scene where the surgeons try coaching a little girl over the phone to sing the disco anthem while trying to save her dying mom with CPR. (Spoiler alert: It worked.)
The New York hospital rounds out the playlist with 39 other tracks made to get hearts pumping. They include “Crazy in Love” by Beyonce and Jay-Z, “Work It” by Missy Elliott, “Dancing Queen by ABBA and “Rock Your Body” by Justin Timberlake.
The lifesavers couldn’t resist throwing in some groan-worthy puns, as well, with suitable tracks including Mariah Carey’s “HeartBreaker” and the Backstreet Boys’ “Quit Playing Games with My Heart.”
The hospital’s site also lists the steps on how to perform CPR, so you’re not just dancing in the dark.
