Captured is singer/songwriter Rockwell's 1985 follow-up to his gold album, Somebody's Watching Me. Despite featuring one single featuring Stevie Wonder and another appearing on the soundtrack of The Last Dragon, it was a commercial and critical disappointment.

Background[edit]

As Rockwell had done on his previous album, he soliticed the help of another prominent recording artist to sing with him on the first single. Instead of Michael Jackson, however, this time he got Stevie Wonder to record the song "He's a Cobra" with him.[1] The song was a flop.

The next single, "Peeping Tom" appeared on the soundtrack to The Last Dragon,[2] but it too was a disappointment.
