SO far, I have the following songs from the other message board:
Dalbello - Gonna Get Close to You (also covered by Queensryche)
Peter Gabriel - Intruder
The Communards - So Cold The Night
Blondie - Maria and One Way or the Other
Rockwell - Somebody’s Watching Me
Pat Benatar - I’m Gonna Follow You
The Toadies - Possum Kingdom
The Four Tops - Bernadette
Alice Cooper - Gail and Die For You
Any others come to mind? Other genres (for example? Opera pieces or musical numbers that might SEEM like a stalker song, by today’s standards (such as On The Street Where You Live from My Fair Lady).
