Every Little Earthquake

It’s ‘Own Clothes Day’ at my children’s schools today, to raise money for Haiti.

At breakfast I explained to my daughter, 4, what the money was for. She said ‘we know a song about an earthquake.’

I’d seen a Met Office primary school weather song sheet (‘I hear thunder’ to the tune of ‘Frere Jacques’ and so on) so I was wondering if maybe the British Geological Survey had something similar.

On closer questioning it turned out she was referring to ‘Earthquake’ by Little Boots, which I must admit to listening to in the car Rather Loudly most mornings (when I’m not listening to Yesterday in Parliament on Radio 4 Long Wave, of course). It’s a guilty pleasure.

So I imagine that song will be off the radio playlists for a while…
