dudes this is the second time the lyrics to "the fresh prince of bel-air" have featured prominently in my comic. I DO BELIEVE IT WILL NOT BE THE LAST
The haps: I got tons of emails about yesterday's comic, most suggesting the more positive Stayin' Alive as your CPR soundtrack instead of Another One Bites The Dust. I think it's great that we've got these two opposite-themed songs to choose from, but I still think Queen's song is better for CPR though! Another One Bites The Dust has exactly 100 BPM (Stayin' Alive has 103) and the beat in Queen's song is easier to keep in mind and more consistantly at the foreground of the song. Plus, Stayin' Alive has that long "Staying Aliiiii-hiiii-iii-ai-aiiiive" part where it's harder to keep track of the beat!
But I believe this comes down to a matter of personal taste. I promise you this: if I ever come across you performing CPR while belting out the also 100-BPM Quit Playin' Games With My Heart - I will not judge! It turns out that there are tons of thematically-appropriate songs to choose from, which affords you the opportunity to both save a life AND adjust the song you sing for maximum appropriateness in every situation.
