Should you ever find yourself needing to perform CPR, there is a playlist on Spotify that is there to help you.

Some of the songs are wonderfully appropriate, like the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive" and "I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor.
Mariah Carey's "Heartbreaker" may feel a somewhat more jarring song choice when performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
Here's a full list of songs the songs currently on the playlist:
