Somebody’s Watching Me was released in January 1984 ahead of Rockwell’s debut album of the same name. The song, with its blend of New Wave, R&B and synth-pop (alongside Rockwell’s haughty fake British accent), entered the Billboard Hot 100 on January 28th, 1984 at number 73, where it would spend 19 weeks on the chart and peak at Number Two behind Kenny Loggins’ Footloose. The album, Rockwell says, will blend pop, rock, hip-hop, R&B and country, but will ditch the voyeuristic themes of his past work. I always had the intention of coming back, and now I’ve learned all of those things and I have the wisdom of far more years, and I have something to say now, he says. I have unfinished business in the record industry.
