Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me” Is Classic ’80s That’ll Give You Goosebumps

Rockwell proved himself to Motown and the world with the release of the 1984 sensational hit “Somebody’s Watching Me.” Kenny “Rockwell” Gordy created something that’d live forever.

Rockwell rose to become one of the most popular sounds of the eighties with the help of Motown and vocals from Michael Jackson and Jermaine Jackson. There’s no song quite like the synth-funk legend “Somebody’s Watching Me.”

Many of us will remember the unmissable sound of this Motown classic from the same time as “Thriller” was launched. Both songs were peaking on the charts, and Michael Jackson had never been hotter.

Rockwell is actually the son of Motown founder Berry Gordy. Kenny Gordy wrote the epic track with the help of Curtis Nolan, and the song was the first song that instilled the faith of father into his son for Berry. He instantly recognized it as a hit.
