Bee Gees – The Artist/s

The Bee Gees were a pop music group formed in 1958. Their lineup consisted of brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. The trio were successful for most of their decades of recording music, but they had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a popular music act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and as prominent performers of the disco music era in the mid-to-late 1970s. The group sang recognisable three-part tight harmonies; Robin’s clear vibrato lead vocals were a hallmark of their earlier hits, while Barry’s R&B falsetto became their signature sound during the mid-to-late 1970s and 1980s. The Bee Gees wrote all of their own hits, as well as writing and producing several major hits for other artists. Born on the Isle of Man to English parents, the Gibb brothers lived in Chorlton, Manchester, England, until the late 1950s. There, in 1955, they formed the Rattlesnakes. The family then moved to Queensland, Australia, and then to Cribb Island. After achieving their first chart success in Australia as the Bee Gees, they returned to the UK in 1967, when producer Robert Stigwood began promoting them to a worldwide audience. The Bee Gees have sold more than 220 million records worldwide, making them one of the world’s best-selling artists of all time.

Stayin Alive – The Song

Stayin Alive is a disco song written and performed by the Bee Gees from the Saturday Night Fever film soundtrack. The song was released in 1977 as the second single from the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. The band co-produced the song with Albhy Galuten and Karl Richardson. It is one of the Bee Gees’ signature songs. “Stayin’ Alive” is used in a study to train medical professionals to provide the correct number of chest compressions per minute while performing CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation). The song has close to 104 beats per minute, and 100–120 chest compressions per minute are recommended by the British Heart Foundation and endorsed by the Resuscitation Council (UK).  A study on medical professionals found that the quality of CPR is better when thinking about “Stayin’ Alive”. This has been parodied in many TV shows, including the UK comedy Cold Feet and the medical drama Grey’s Anatomy.

The Lightning Heart – The Shape

Modelled into a heart with a lightning bolt to symbolise a hearts resuscitation after CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation).
