"Shakin'" is a song by American rock singer Eddie Money from his Platinum-certified album No Control, released in 1982. It was co-written by Eddie Money, Elizabeth Myers, and Ralph Carter, and released as a single, reaching #63 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart[1] and #9 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks.

The video for the single featured actress/model Patricia Kotero, better known as Apollonia, as the female doing the "shakin". She would later go on to co-star in the film Purple Rain.

The song is a playable track on the music video game Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s.

The song's video was featured on an episode of Beavis and Butthead. The duo enjoyed the video, particularly Money's faces while watching the model dance around.
