image for Record Sales for Japan After Quake

Johnny Kidd & The Pirates went straight in at no.1 in the Japanese chart with their hit single "Shakin' all Over". The No.2 spot was taken by Jerry Lee Lewis with "Shake, Baby, Shake" and the no.3 was a new entry by The Beatles and their cover of "The Hippy Hippy Shake".

Karaoke bars were reported to be doing record business with such songs as "I'm gonna leave ol' Sendai Town" and "Rock the Tokyo", with "Shake, Rattle & Roll" coming in a close third.

The music industry was accused of "taking the piss" by releasing the songs in the wake of the recent earthquake, but record moguls said that they were merely reacting to demand.

Reportedly, the Japanese President asked his wife, "Did the earth move for you dear?" and allegedly got a slap.
