This song has been stuck in my head for a few days (thank Adam Sandler) so I figured it’d be nice to share the love:
Somebody’s Watching Me by Rockwell
Yes, that’s the King of Pop singing backup. I’ve always wondered how on EARTH that happened so I just looked it up. According to Wikipedia:
Rockwell is the son of Motown founder and CEO Berry Gordy and Margaret Norton. To avoid charges of nepotism, Rockwell secured his record deal without his father’s knowledge. Motown came up with the name Rockwell. Rockwell changed his name because he believed he “rocked well.”
In 1984, Rockwell released his only hit single, “Somebody’s Watching Me”, featuring childhood friends Michael Jackson on guest vocals (notably in the chorus lyrics), and Jermaine Jackson singing back-up.
Mystery solved! Happy hump day!
