A few days ago, I was talking to someone about things that have passed in my lifetime that I never thought would. This included the fall of the Berlin Wall, and of course, an African-American US President. Wish I would have thought about this one inauguration week, but better late than never.
The thought occurred to me that some of the youngsters who voted for Obama were actually born after the Berlin Wall came down.
Ironically, it was Hillary Clinton who used the song in her campaign.
Jesus Jones, originally from London, is still around. "Right Here, Right Now," from their first album, was a #2 hit in the United States. Their second and third albums sold well, but not as well as the first. They took an extended break and began recording again every few years.
"Right Here, Right Now" has been used in commercials and television shows, and a remix of the song was a club hit for producer Robbie Rivera in 2005.
