"Someone's Watching over Me" is a pop song written by Kara DioGuardi and John Shanks, produced by Shanks and recorded by Hilary Duff for the soundtrack of the 2004 film Raise Your Voice, in which she stars. It also appears on Duff's third album, Hilary Duff (2004). Jeff Rothschild and Shanks mixed the song. It was released as the album's second single in Australia in 2005 (see 2005 in music)
During the week of the single's radio release in Australia in January, it was the fifth most added song to station playlists. After its release as a single the following month, it peaked at number twenty-two on the ARIA Singles Chart and remained in the top forty for nine weeks. The single's B-side is a cover of The Who's "My Generation".
