"Right Here, Right Now" is a song by British alternative dance band Jesus Jones from the album, Doubt. It was released as the album's second single in September 1990 (approximately four months before the release of Doubt), and peaked 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] Mike Edwards has since noted some of the lyrics were influenced by the band's experiences playing in Romania in early 1990 right after the overthrow of Ceaucescu.[5]
