This was the week of the Sylmar earthquake. I actually was awake a few minutes before it struck shortly after 6 a.m. I was listening to Charlie Tuna, and he had just played "Stoney End." I was in my room in our two-story apartment in Long Beach, and it shook for what seemed like minutes but was really about 15 seconds. That was my first quake, surprising since I was almost 13 and had only lived in Southern California.

I remember the Sylmar quake as well. I was in Lomita at the time. I was awake and lying in bed when the shaking started. The water in a goldfish bowl started sloshing all over the place. My mom came in and I said "What is that???" "Oh, it's an earthquake." She had been through a few including the Long Beach quake way back when. It is interesting how they seem like they last forever.

I was eleven and living in Sherman Oaks when the Sylmar quake hit. I woke up at the height of it, with things falling all around me, my dresser banging against the wall, and the sound of glass shattering endlessly in the distance. I had never been so terrified. My sisters and I had been up late the night before; it was hot, for February, and we couldn't sleep. We sat up together listening to the radio. To this day, half the songs on this list are "earthquake songs" to me.
