10/18/18 O&A NYC THROWBACK THURSDAY- HALLOWEEN: Rockwell- Somebody’s Watching Me

Somebody’s Watching Me by Rockwell, released by the Motown label on January 14, 1984, as the lead single from his debut studio album of the same name. Rockwell’s debut single release, the song features guest vocals by brothers Michael Jackson (in the chorus) and Jermaine Jackson (additional backing vocals).

The music video to Somebody’s Watching Me, (which uses the radio edit instead of the album version) underscores the song’s paranoid tone with a haunted house inspired theme, including imagery of floating heads, ravens, graveyards, and shower scenes referencing Psycho.
