I Feel the Earth Move

I Feel the Earth Move

Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!


If you're not familiar with today's song, you can hear it here.

1) This song is from the album Tapestry, one of the all-time best-sellers (more than 25,000,000 copies sold worldwide). Is it in your collection? 
Yes, but only in my Spotify collection online.
2) It's about that glorious passion you feel when you first fall for someone. How many times have you been in love? 
True love only once....but there were a lot of times before that I THOUGHT I was in love.
3) San Francisco radio stations briefly removed "I Feel the Earth Move" from their playlists after the 1989 earthquake. Have you ever been in an earthquake and literally felt "the earth move under your feet?"
Nope, no earthquakes for me.
4) Carole King is the first and only woman to win the Gershwin Prize for songwriting from the Library of Congress. Here's your chance to brag a little -- tell us about an accolade you have received.
I've had a book of my poetry published, as well as a few individual poems published in magazines.

5) Carole wrote "You've Got a Friend," which was a mega hit for her good pal, James Taylor. King and Taylor have known one another for more than 40 years, but have never been romantically involved. Do you have any platonic friends of the opposite sex? best friends have almost always been male.
6) Like more than 80% of the population, Carole is right handed. Are you right handed, left handed (10%) or that most rare of all, ambidextrous (less than 10%)?
I am right handed.
7) One of Carole King's earliest hits was Little Eva's "The Loco-Motion." Little Eva was the teenager King hired to care for her young children. Tell us about a sitter who cared for you when you were little.
Most of the time, that would have been my grandparents.
8) Beautiful is the title of the Broadway play about Carole King's life. If we were producing your life story, what would you want us to call it?
My blog title, Snapshots of a Life,sounds good to me.
9) Carole wrote "Pleasant Valley Sunday," the Monkees' song about conspicuous consumption. When Crazy Sam looks at her crowded shelf of hair products (paraben-free conditioner, keratin-restoring conditioner, hair masque, hot oil conditioner …), she realizes she's guilty of it herself. Have you bought anything recently that you later decided was a waste of money?
In the past, but not recently....I'm much more conscious of what I buy and how much I spend these days.


  1. Congratulations on being published!

    I have to work harder at being careful with my spending.

  2. Living on a fixed income now, we truly think about most all of our purchases as well.

  3. Wow, way to go on the poetry publication. That is excellent. Poetry is hard work.

  4. We've had a few earthquakes in Northern Maine that I've felt. It's such an unreal sensation.

  5. Congrats on the poetry publications! I've had one published, but not a whole book!

  6. You really do feel that 'oomph' with true love!.....Congrats on your writing achievements! ☺
