'Road to Hell' by Chris Rea

Not least because of the saying, "The road to hell is paved with good intentions"[1] but I believe Road to Hell by Chris Rea[2] is more likely to improve both the compression rate and depth during CPR training. It is not surprising that Nellie the Elephant did not have a significantly positive impact on the performance.Merry Christmas.
