Shakin’ All Over

First recorded by Johnny Kidd & The Pirates (UK #1 1960).
Other hit versions by Guess Who? (US #22/CAN #1/AUS #27 1965), Normie Rowe (AUS #1 1965).

From the wiki: “‘Shakin’ All Over’ was written by frontman Johnny Kidd and reached #1 in the United Kingdom in August 1960. Kidd recalls ‘When I was going round with a bunch of lads and we happened to see a girl who was a real sizzler we used to say that she gave us ‘quivers down the membranes’. It was a standard saying with us referring to any attractive girl … I can honestly say that it was this more than anything that inspired me to write ‘Shakin’ All Over’.’
