These Songs by Beyonce, Justin Timberlake & More Might Just Save Your Life

Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and ABBA are not just pop stars, they may be life-savers too. 

New York Presbyterian Hospital has shared a new Spotify playlist intended to help train first responders in hands-only CPR. The 40-song set also includes the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive," Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" and Missy Elliott's "Work It," among other theme-appropriate tracks -- all of which are 100 beats-per-minute, "the right beat to perform CPR," according to the playlist description. 

Somewhat ironically, there are a number of worst-case-scenario songs on the list as well, such as Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust," Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky" and Mariah Carey's "Heartbreaker" featuring Jay Z

"Pick one to remember in case you ever need to save a life," the description states. 

The method is proven, too. Last October, a subway worker in New York survived an electrocution on the third rail thanks to a co-worker performing CPR to the beat of the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive."
