"Stayin' Alive" can keep you alive.

Researchers at the University of Illinois College of Medicine have found that the Bee Gees song "Stayin' Alive" has the ideal rhythm for timing chest compressions in CPR.  EMTs need to press on a person's chest 100 times a minute to get the heart started again, and "Stayin' Alive" has a beat of 103 times a minute.  By matching the beats in their heads, rescuers can reliably push the chest without faltering.
