Martika – I Feel The Earth Move (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 18th April 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

A. Front

This post is in no way meant to be insensitive to the people of Japan or Ecuador. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the recent earthquakes.

“I Feel the Earth Move” is a song written and originally recorded by pop singer-songwriter Carole King in 1971.

Released in summer 1989, “I Feel the Earth Move” was the third single from American singer-songwriter and actress Martika’s self-titled debut, Martika. “I Feel the Earth Move” reached number 7 in the UK and number 2 in Australia. The high energy music video was shot during the promotional tour for this album. The single also reached number 25 on the pop charts in the U.S., but quickly fell down the chart after radio stations pulled it from their playlists in the wake of the 1989 San Francisco earthquake.

I Feel The Earth Move (Seismic Rhythm Mix) 7:11
I Feel The Earth Move (Dub Mix) 6:24

SIDE B:
