|Jesus Jones singles chronology|
"Right Here, Right Now" is a song written by Mike Edwards and recorded by the British alternative dance band Jesus Jones from the album, Doubt. A single was released in September 1990, peaking at number 31 on the UK Singles Chart. In the United States, it was a number one song on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in July 1991.
The song was inspired by events in Europe of the late 1980s, particularly Perestroika in Russia. Although the song was not recorded until May 1990, it was already a feature of their set list as early as spring 1989 and thus was written months before the fall of the Berlin Wall.
