♫ I Feel The Earth Move ♫ (Redux)

I Feel the Earth Move is a song written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Carole King, for her second studio album Tapestry. Additionally, the song is one half of the double A-sided single, the flip side of which was It’s Too Late. Together, both I Feel the Earth Move and It’s Too Late became among the biggest mainstream pop hits of 1971.

Initially as one of the staff songwriters at 1650 Broadway and later as a solo artist, Carole King is regarded as one of the most significant and influential musicians of all time.  King currently lives in Idaho and is an environmental activist!  My kind of person!

This song charted at #1 in the U.S. and #6 in both Australia and the UK.

I Feel the Earth Move
James Taylor, Carole King

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you’re around

Ooh, baby, when I see your face
Mellow as the month of May
Oh, darling, I can’t stand it
When you look at me that way

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you’re around

Ooo, darling, when you’re near me
And you tenderly call my name
I know that my emotions
Are something I just can’t tame
I’ve just got to have you, baby, uh huh huh uh huh huh yeah

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, a’tumbling down
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, a’tumbling down

I just lose control
Down to my very soul
I get hot and cold, all over, all over, all over, all over
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, a’tumbling down

I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down, a’tumbling down,
A’tumbling down, a’tumbling down, a’tumbling down, a’tumbling down, tumbling down!

  1. Jill, this album has stood the test of time as the one of the finest every written. I encourage you to read “Carole King – a Natural Woman,” as she tells an interesting story of her life from her marriage to her first partner and husband, Gerry Goffin, who had some mental health challenges to a second husband who was abusive. This song is classic King. My favorite story is when a record producer saw her and Goffin on the New York streets, rolled down his car window and asked can you write me a song for Aretha Franklin in 24 hours calling it “Natural Woman?” And, they did.

  2. Twice you played this, and twice I failed to comment. Hmmm. Gives me pause for thought.
    But I haven’t felt such ferlings since my marriage ended in 1986. I don’t fall in love as easily now as I did then. Once upon a time I believed I could fall in love forever. Forever is such a short period of time.
    It was wonderful when it happened, I won’t say it wasn’t. But every heartbreak added up, and eventually i didn’t feel the love was worth the heartbreak.
    And that was when I finally learned to love someone calmly, and with maturity. It makes for a much more lasting relationship. Going on 20 years now.
