Could disco save your life?

Yep. That's the conclusion of a University of Illinois medical school study, which found that the Bee Gees' disco anthem "Stayin' Alive" can teach proper CPR technique.

How so? It's all about tempo. The song has 103 beats per minute, a pace that matches the recommended rhythm of chest compressions for CPR. Keep the song in your head, and you keep up the right pace.

Turns out the med school testers aren't the only ones to get into the disco groove. The American Heart Association also recommends "Stayin' Alive" for CPR training sessions.

Disco not your thing? This song by Queen works, too, but the title's not so encouraging.
