Music Monday Earthquake in the Roxiticus Valley: I Feel the Earth Move by Carole King

Roxy and family didn't actually feel the earth move under our feet this morning, we're all just fine, but this just in from the Star Ledger about the Somerset County NJ earthquake on Sunday, February 21st:

BERNARDSVILLE -- A 2.6 magnitude earthquake hit just before 9 a.m., prompting scores of phone calls to police but no reported damage, according to Police Sgt. John Remian.

The earthquake's epicenter was reported in Gladstone, about seven miles away, at 8:59 a.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey website.

But Bernardsville residents have logged the highest number of phone calls reporting the quake, according to the USGA.

About 100 people called Bernardsville police in the following minutes, Remian said, after experiencing a loud rumble then hearing what sounded like a boom. "It was felt by everybody here," Remian said from police headquarters. "It felt like the whole room was shaking around us, and a loud exposion afterward."

Remian said the area, which sits on the Ramapo Fault Line, experienced a 1.5 magnitude earthquake in January. Though there has been no reported damage after this morning's earthquake, Remian said, "this was more substantial than the last one."

The county's Office of Emergency Management was notified, he said, and Bernardsville Police sent out an advisory notice through the town's e-mail and text messaging system.

I hadn't figured out my Music Monday post when I saw the headline, making Carole King "I Feel the Earth Move" an easy choice. Here's a terrific live performance of the 70's hit:





I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you're around

Oh baby

When I see your face
Mellow as the month of May
Oh darling I can't stand it
When you look at me that way

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you're around

Oh darling

When you're near me
And you tenderly call my name
I know that,

My emotions
Are something I just can't tame
I've just got to have you baby

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down

I just lose control
Down to my very soul
I get hot and cold all over

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
tumbling down, tumbling down...
