Description

Right here waiting 12″ + Hold on to the nights (live) + That was Lulu (live).

“Right Here Waiting” is a ballad recorded by Richard Marx on his second album, Repeat Offender. “Right Here Waiting” hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100. It also made it to #2 in the UK.

“Right Here Waiting” was the second single from Repeat Offender, after “Satisfied”. Marx wrote it on the road as a love letter to his wife, actress Cynthia Rhodes, who was in South Africa shooting for a film. In an era of power ballads, “Right Here Waiting” distinguished itself by its understatement; the track was arranged by Marx with Jeffery (C.J.) Vanston to feature none of the heavy drums and synth popular at the time, with Marxs vocal accompanied only by classical guitar (by Bruce Gaitsch) and keyboards (by Vanston). It is one of Marxs most frequently covered compositions.

Certified Platinum on October 16, 1989, “Right Here Waiting” is Marxs best selling single. It is also his most enduring.
In the UK the song was released in September 1989 and peaked at #2.

Music video
Two music videos were filmed for this single, although both were deemed “too sexual” in nature, and were shunned and banned by lobbyist before the release ever hit the publics screens. Included in the first banned video was 42 second “softcore” sex scene, involving Marx and the love interest this song refers to.
The second video, was picked at with a fine-toothed comb. Complaints were made about every minor detail, including Marx briefly holding hands with a man, and the backup dancers clothing being “too tight”.
