《萬聖節必備單曲》Rockwell - Somebody's Watching Me




Who's playing tricks on me?

Happy Halloween 萬聖節快樂!送上應景歌曲,1984 年美國 R&B 歌手 Rockwell 的成名大作「Somebody's Watching Me」,當年拿下 Billboard R&B 單曲榜冠軍,在各國音樂排行榜也皆有不錯的成績。之後更被許多歌手翻唱及採樣,其中較有名的是 1992 年 DJ BoBo 的「Somebody Dance with Me」以及 2006 年荷蘭電子舞曲三人組 Beatfreakz 的版本。特別一提,在副歌可以聽到已故流行音樂天王 Michael Jackson 的聲音,他和哥哥 Jermaine Jackson 當時都擔任此首歌曲的和聲,精彩又好聽。由於音樂錄影帶營造一種驚魂記的詭異氣氛,彷彿身陷鬼屋般,加上演唱者偏執狂的演唱方式,因此可說是每年萬聖節的必備歌曲!

P.S. MV 一開始還以為是國語日報 XD


Lyrics 歌詞:(by 好青年 整理)

Who's watching?
Tell me who's watching
Who's watching me?

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
Woh, 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
Well, 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
Woh, 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?
Who's watching?
Well, it's the mailman watching me, and I don't feel safe anymore
Tell me who's watching
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
Woh, I always feel like somebody's watching me
Tell me it is just a trick

I always feel like somebody's watching me
And I have no privacy
Woh, I always feel like somebody's watching me
Who's playing tricks on me?

I always feel like somebody's watching me
Woh, I always feel like somebody's watching me
Tell me it can't be
I always feel like somebody's watching me


1992 年 DJ BoBo 的「Somebody Dance with Me」


2006 年荷蘭電子舞曲三人組 Beatfreakz 的版本
