#7: "I Feel the Earth Move"

r778_140_1774_1338_w1200_h678_fmax.jpg

Average Score: 8.34

 

High Score: 10 @That J  @ThaFame @blackcoffee

Low Score: 4 @Ronk

 

Comments:

@blackcoffee ~ “Song has such a great drive. The jazzy, almost funky, bass line is so good. The song is catchy and that piano solo is so, so good.”

@That J ~ “This was my fave until I realized what all was on this album. This album plays like a hits collection any artist would be lucky to have. But all these are on one original album. What a way to start. This classic is a sing a long toe tapper of unbridled excitement due to a man who gives you those good real feels. It's fun, its warm, its amazing.”

@Oriane ~ “A classic ! Very energetic, it makes you want to dance.”

@GaGaSwift ~ “Always been one of my favorites. I think the instrumental really invokes a kid - like feeling within me. One of my favorites from the album”

@PunkTheFunk ~ “What can I say -- a classic! You really can't go wrong with this one.”

The Earth Move is a FIRE piece of music. I hate seeing it leave but we are left with the hard ones now. I expected this to last a tad longer tho. Surprised.  

I thought this would beat So Far Away but, again, this gets HARD.

Side note, I became friends with Martika (Marta)  years and years and years ago on MySpace and to this day, we just sometimes talk.  Phone calls.  A very cool sweet energetic  lady.

Martika's cover is smokin'!  Wow.  The first cover so far that I like better than Carole's version.

Apparently, Mandy Moore also did a cover of the song? Just found it:

I'm still partial to the original version of the song over all others, as that was the one I grew up on

High Score: 10 @Rumours1977 @ThaFame

Comments:

@blackcoffee ~ “Lovely lyrics and storytelling.”

@That J ~ “I love the depth of this one. The title track to one of the most praised classic albums OF ALL TIME. It's beautiful. Its mature.”

@Oriane ~ “Beautiful but there are already some ballads like this one on the album.”

@GaGaSwift ~ “Never one that spoke to me. Kind of bland musically but I do appreciate the lyrics.”

@PunkTheFunk ~ “Not only a beautiful melody, but the lyrics are pure poetry.”

That's so great!  You've convinced me to purchase Martika's Kitchen.  To me, it's important that an artist is also a good person.
