Taylor Swift has a song that can help save lives. According to the American Heart Association, the song "The Man" has the right tempo to which a person can perform chest compressions (CPR) which are needed to help a person in cardiac arrest.

"The Man" has a rate of 110 beats per minute, the measurement that the U.S. heart organization recommends following when performing CPR on an adolescent or adult. For that reason, the association recommended in an Instagram post to its followers to "be 'The Man'" and take action if they see someone suffer a cardiac arrest:

Taylor Swift's song joins other songs recommended by the American Heart Association that also have a beat between 100 and 120 beats per minute such as "Stayin' Alive" by the Bee Gees, "Crazy in Love" by Beyoncé or "Dancing Queen" by ABBA.
