With the poignant and inspiring lyrics of her songs, Taylor Swift has had many fans say that their lives have been saved by her. But it looks like this statement is proven true as an organization specializing in cardiovascular health found that one of the singer's songs can save someone from dying.

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), Swift's 2019 song The Man can be used in emergency situations as it has the right tempo of 110 beats per minute to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to.

"If you see a teen or adult collapse, call 911, then push hard and fast in the center of the chest. A song with 100-120 beats per minutelike Taylor Swift’s 'The Man'can help you keep the right rhythm," AHA explained in their post.

CPR is a lifesaving technique that is applied in emergencies where the person has had their breathing or heartbeat stopped, such as a heart attack or near drowning. It can keep blood flowing to the brain and other organs until a medical expert can restore the person's typical heart rhythm, according to Mayo Clinic.

The Man is included in Swift's setlist for her ongoing Eras Tour concert that started in mid-March and is set to end in August. During her recently conluded leg at Foxborough, Massachusetts, the singer-songwriter opened up about being the happiest she’s ever been in her life amid relationship rumors with The 1975 frontman Matty Healy.

"I kind of feel like telling you, I don’t know, I’ve just never been this happy in my life in all aspects of my life ever before," she told the crowd. "And I just want to thank you for being a part of that."

Rumors of romance brewing between them started when an insider close to Swift broke the news to Entertainment Tonight.
