  • Lyrics
  • Did the Earth move for you? Apparently it did for Zenda Jacks, though most people would agree this one is more of a knee trembler. Running to 3 minutes 1 second, "Earthquake!" was written by Peter Shelley who also produced it. It was arranged - heavily - by John Fiddy. The B-side of the single was an instrumental version of the same thing. >>

  • Zenda Jacks (real name: Suzie McCloskey) is a British singer who billed herself "The Goddess Of Rock." This was her second single, following the similarly coy "Rub My Tummy." She later joined the disco group Silver Convention.
