I feel a bit sorry for Rockwell.

But only a bit. He had a huge hit with this in 1984, and it’s been played on radio stations all over the world ever since. Until a few weeks ago, that is. Following the screening of Finding Neverland and its fairly concrete evidence that Michael Jackson was a predatory paedophile, all those radio stations immediately removed his records from their playlists. Somebody’s Watching Me will have been removed too because, of course, its chorus is sung by Jackson. But let’s be honest, Jacko’s contribution is the only good bit. It’s the only reason Rockwell has received royalty cheques for 35 years. But it’s now the reason he won’t be receiving any more.
