Milan – Somebody’s Watching Me (Rockwell Cover)

Milan - Somebody's Watching Me (Rockwell Cover)I really love good 80s cover versions! The 80s classic “Somebody’s Watching Me” by Rockwell has not yet been covered too often. ‘Milan’ has given the classic a fresh new look and it suits him really well. By the way, for years I believed that the song was by ‘Michael Jackson’, or that he was involved in the chorus.

With this cover version, the song gets a good touch of disco and dance beat along the way. Instead of pitching his own vocals high in the chorus, ‘Milan’ has decided to make room for female vocals in the part. This adds a nice variety to the song. A simply fantastic cover version!

Lyrics:

I′m just an average man with an average life
I work from nine to five, hey, hell, I pay the price
All I want is to be left alone in my average home
But why do I always feel like I’m in the twilight zone?

And
I always feel like somebody′s watching me
And I have no privacy
I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Tell me is it just a dream?

When I come home at night
I bolt the door real tight
People call me on the phone, I’m trying to avoid
But can the people on TV see me or am I just paranoid?

When I′m in the shower, I′m afraid to wash my hair
Cause I might open my eyes and find someone standing there
People say I’m crazy, just a little touched
But maybe showers remind me of Psycho too much

That′s why
I always feel like somebody’s watching me
And I have no privacy
I always feel like somebody′s watching me
Who’s playing tricks on me?

(Who′s watching me?)
I don’t know anymore
Are the neighbors watching me?
(Who’s watching?)
Well is the mailman watching me?
(Tell me who′s watching?)
And I don′t feel safe anymore, oh what a mess
I wonder who’s watching me now
(Who?!)
The IRS?!

I always feel like somebody′s watching me
And I have no privacy
I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Tell me, is it just a dream?

I always feel like somebody′s watching me
And I have no privacy
I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Who′s playing tricks on me?
(Who’s watching?)

I always feel like somebody’s watching me
I always feel like somebody′s watching me
Tell me, who can it be?
(Who′s watching?)

I always feel like somebody’s watching me
I always feel like somebody′s watching me
Who’s playing tricks on me?
(Who′s watching me?)

I always feel like somebody’s watching me
Can I have my privacy?
I always feel like somebody′s watching me
Who’s playing tricks on me?
