Hi all a friendly reminder we have the MIT Student Council Online Rave today at 1:00 pm!
Join Zoom Meeting
Student Council have all selected songs we will be playing with a quick explanation why this song is important to them ;)
Here is a sample from Joan Liau that we will chat about today!
“Stayin’ Alive” was one of five songs the Bee Gees wrote specifically for Saturday Night Fever.
This song talks about much more than dancing and having a good time. It deals with struggles and aspiration; making your way in the world even after you've been kicked around.
This is one of my favorite songs because it has a groovy vibe to it and it often makes people want to dance to it.
A fun fact about "Stayin' Alive" was that it was used in a study to train medical professionals to provide the correct number of chest compression's per minute while performing CPR.
The song has close to 104 beats per minute, and 100–120 chest compression's per minute are recommended by the British Heart Foundation.
Zoom in at 1:00 for a catch up, relaxing time and a break from studies.
