    Band leader Mike Edwards wrote this song. He told the Guardian newspaper August 9, 2003: "With hits around the world we became famous for a few years. At the start of 1990 I wrote a song called 'Right Here, Right Now,' a title I disliked but intended to change before the final recording. Thirteen years later, I'm still making a living from that title, even if Fatboy Slim's identically titled song may have eaten into my action." - https://bit.ly/3XmLswt --- Celebrating the music of 1990 & 50 years of KEXP! - https://www.kexp.org/50/

    Inspiration for this song struck in 1989 when Mike Edwards was listening to the Simple Minds' version of "Sign O' The Times," which they recorded on a 1989 EP titled The Amsterdam. The song, written and originally recorded by Prince, is his perspective of the troubling events of the late '80s. While Edwards listened to the music, he watched the Berlin Wall coming down on television. "I never thought that I'd see such a thing in my lifetime," he told The Guardian in 2018, "and I wanted to write a sort of updated but positive 'Sign O' The Times' to reflect what was happening." -- The song's original title was "Nelson." The name comes from Prince, whose full name was Prince Rogers Nelson.

    According to the book "The Last Party: Britpop, Blair and the Demise of English Rock" by John Harris, this song was written about the fall of the Iron Curtain. --- Band leader Mike Edwards told the Guardian newspaper August 9, 2003: "With hits around the world we became famous for a few years. At the start of 1990 I wrote a song called 'Right Here, Right Now,' a title I disliked but intended to change before the final recording.
