"Right Here, Right Now" is a song by British alternative dance band Jesus Jones from the album, Doubt. It was released in September 1990 as a single, peaking at number 31 on the UK Singles Chart.[1] 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, only behind "Everything I Do (I Do It For You)" by Bryan Adams.[2]

Content[edit]

The song was inspired by events in Europe of the late 1980s, particularly Perestroika in Russia.[3][4] 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. [5]
