"Somebody" is a rock song written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance for Adams fourth studio album Reckless (1984). It was the second single released from the album Reckless. The song topped the Billboard Top Rock Tracks chart and peaked at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100.
"Somebody" was released in the winter of 1985 and became one of the most successful songs from Reckless on the American rock charts and arguably one of Adams' most recognizable and popular songs. The song was Adams' second number one hit on the Top Rock Tracks chart, where it spent two weeks, and peaked at number 11 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Somebody" reached number 13 on the Canadian singles chart and remained in the top 20 for six weeks. "Somebody" was Adams third top 20 hit on the Canadian chart. "Somebody" was released the following month in Europe and peaked at the number 20 in Ireland and at 35 on the UK Singles Chart becoming his third single to chart in Europe.
There are two music videos for the song. One features visual footage shot at the Albany James H. Gray Sr. Civic Center in Albany GA on 7 May 1987 of Adams and his band performing the song live, with the audience screaming in the background. The other shows Adams walking out of a stadium and through a field, interspersed with shots of him with his guitar, as well as a woman (played by Lysette Anthony) who appears to be having relationship problems with her boyfriend; the video culminates with Adams walking out onto the field of a packed football stadium while a video of him playing the song plays on the big screen.
