Quakin’ – Songs To Help You Cope With Today’s Eastern Seaboard Earthquake


If you were anywhere on the Eastern seaboard in the last hour or so, you no doubt felt the effect of an earthquake that registered 5.9 on the Richter Scale. Here in Times Square at VH1 HQ, we felt the building sway and bounce uncomfortably for a good five or six seconds. Everyone seems to be okay, if a bit freaked out.

In order to help you (and us!) calm down on this hectic afternoon, we just created the following playlist of earthquake-themed songs for all you Spotify users out there:
Quakin’ – Songs To Help You Cope With The 2011 New York City Earthquake

(If you’re not on Spotify, this room on Turntable.fm also just cropped up: Earthquake 2K11.)

Full playlist for you after the jump:

1) Carole King, “I Feel The Earth Move”
2) Georgia Satellites, “Hippy Hippy Shake”
3) Bill Haley & The Comets, “Shake, Rattle And Roll”
4) D3D4, “You Shook Me All Night Long”
5) The Surfaris, “Earthquake”
6) Prince, “Housequake”
7) Michael Jackson, “Rock With You”
8) Eminem, “Shake That”
9) Yngwie Malmsteen, “Faultline”
10) Anthrax, “Aftershock”
11) Wilco, “Shake It Off”
12) Beck, “Earthquake Weather”
13) Tori Amos, “Little Earthquakes”
14) Delerium, “Tectonic Shift”
