Songfacts®:

  • "Disturbance" was the B-side of The Move's debut single "Night Of Fear." What sort of disturbance was it? Well, according to the bloke who wrote it, Roy Wood:

    When I was a little boy
    My mama dropped me on my head...


    Right. Few people who are familiar with the antics of The Move would take issue with that claim.

    Running to less than 3 minutes, it was produced by Danny Cordell. >>
