The current album of Taylor Swift, “The Tortured Poets Department” is not just music but it has the potential to save lives. This song has caught the attention of the American Heart Association (AHA) for its tempo which is 110 beats per minute which is exactly what is recommended for performing hands-on CPR.

The AHA could not help but post on Instagram to thank Swift for her efforts in creating CPR awareness. This is because it is important to have a double album that might save someone’s life. 

They advised that if someone sees a teenager or adult collapse, they should call 911 and start chest compressions to the rhythm of the “The Tortured Poets Department.”

Fans have also noticed this special feature of the song. Some have jokingly added the song to their life-saving playlists. The song’s relevance to emergencies sparked conversations among listeners, with one fan pointing out the irony of Swift’s lyrics in the context of CPR.

What is the Inspiration Behind the Tortured Poets Department?

Speculation surrounds the inspiration behind “The Tortured Poets Department,” with many suggesting it draws from Swift’s brief romance with Matty Healy. 

Despite their public appearances together in 2023, Swift and Healy parted ways, with Swift now dating NFL star Travis Kelce, and Healy romantically involved with model Gabbriette Bechtel.

Swift’s eleventh studio album has broken records, becoming the biggest of her career and the decade so far, boasting an impressive 2.61 million consumption units.

She has inadvertently raised awareness about CPR through her music, turning a catchy beat into a potentially life-saving tool. However, for a long time, “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees has been identified with the CPR rhythm, but another song with the same rhythm was released by Swift’s ex-boyfriend Matty Healy’s band called The 1975. 

The American Heart Association posted in October 2022 that the band’s 2016 hit, “Somebody Else,” also works for hands-on CPR thereby adding to the list of the life-saving track.

Meanwhile, they suggest that you have a song in mind when you need to do CPR because it’ll help you keep a steady rhythm of 100 to 120 BPM (beats per minute).
