For a match on Jones and over, I pick Sammy Jones's "Worried Over You"

I'll strike things up with Mortimer's "Lightning"

Or, should you want more, we could go with some "Circus Music" by Lightning The Magnetic

I enjoyed finding both..

Earthquakes? Well, how about a whole lotta shakin' with this one, the shortest song to ever hit the Top 40...Now don't get me wrong, as of this year, Lil Nas X's original version of "Old Town Road" clocks in as the shortest NUMBER ONE (1:53) since Herman's Hermits' 1965 #1 "I'm Henry The VIII I Am" (1:49)...The shortest #1 song EVER was Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs' "Stay" (1960) at 1:38, followed by the Herman's Hermits song at #2, Elvis Presley's "Surrender" (1961) (1:51) at #3, The Chiffons' "He's So Fine" (1963) (1:52) at #4 and the Lil Nas X song and David Rose's "The Stripper" (1962) tied for 5th place at 1:53 each...Those are not the shortest to ever hit the Hot 100, though...That honor would go to Piko-Taro's 2016 tune, "PPAP (Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen") which clocked in at a mere 45 seconds and hit #77 on the charts...The longest tune on the Hot 100 also happened in 2016, with David Bowie's "Blackstar", taking that honor, clocking in at 9:57 that same year and hitting #78...

Still, Piko-Taro did not hit the Top 40, so the shortest to ever hit the Top 40 was THIS tune from 1960, clocking in at a mere 1:17...

Duane Eddy - Some Kind-A Earthquake



A nice little history lesson for you all, in any case... 8-[

How about we go from an earthquake to an earth song? :-k

Michael Jackson - Earth Song



You know, he really was right about the stuff he sings about here...It doesn't take much to see what has been going on for the last 50 years, but I guess we've just been blind to it... :(

We could pass some more reggae style "Island Time" with the Bumpin Uglies

Or, noticing the approaching season, we could rock things up with group Train and head for "Christmas Island"
