"Someone's Looking at You" was the third and final single from the The Boomtown Rats' album The Fine Art of Surfacing. It peaked at number two on the Irish charts and number 4 in the UK. It is an organ-based song that paints a humid picture of 1984-style government surveillance and has been described as a gently humorous song about paranoia. The second verse starts They saw me there in the square when I was shooting my mouth off about saving some fish. Now could that be construed as some radical's views or some liberals' wish. This refers to singer Bob Geldof's participation in a Greenpeace anti-whaling rally in London's Trafalgar Square. Geldof's website describes the song as a personal statement on fame.
