Throwback Track: Somebody’s Watching Me - Rockwell ft. Michael Jackson
Speed: 124 bpm
Recommended bpm range: 120 to 125 bpm, 125 to 130 bpm
The DJ’s Take: This is a classic Halloween track, as well as Geico’s song of choice for its current ad campaign. Several questions - why is Michael Jackson doing the hook for a one hit wonder (here’s the Wikipedia answer)? Who takes showers with their shorts on? Was he trying to sound like the dude who does Monster Mash? And when was that haircut ever acceptable? Seriously - leave a comment and let me know.
Anyway, whether you’re dj’ing or putting together a playlist for your Halloween party, you will probably get a request for this. Get it before you forget.
