Right Now

Music by Van Halen

Originally Performed by Van Halen

"Right Now" is a rock song written by the group Van Halen for their album For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge. The song reflects on living for the moment and not being afraid of making a change. Vocalist Sammy Hagar has said that he was writing the lyrics to this song at the studio very late one night, and he heard Eddie Van Halen in an adjacent room working on a piano melody. Hagar said he suddenly realized that "we were writing the same song," so he walked into the room and began singing his words over Van Halen's music.[citation needed] According to Eddie, the instrumental dates back to 1983, "before I wrote "Jump" - it didn't come out until about '92, '93 or something like that, cause nobody wanted anything to do with it." An early version of the melody appears in the 1984 movie The Wild Life which was scored by Eddie Van Halen. Eddie also stated that before Hagar was hired to replace David Lee Roth, he considered an album that would feature various guest singers, with Joe Cocker assigned to "Right Now".

BaSix : Embodiment    Out of Print

For their second release baSix has the great idea of getting some of a cappella's finest talents to help them so they engaged the House Jack's Deke Sharon and Britt Quinten of M-Pact to produce the album. A mixture of some fine original songs along with pop classics such as Prince's "Purple Rain" and the Beatles "Come Together" makes for a top-notch contemporary a cappella album worthy of all fans collections. All songs are in English and the production quality is superb thanks to noted a cappella sound engineer Bill Hare.

Songlist: Come Together, Right Now, Fallen, Dining Out, Purple Rain, Living And Loving It, Sweet Misery, My Heart Won't Work Like It Used To, If You Were My Woman, The Right Way, Part Of Me As One, Right Now
