On Twitter, former Van Halen vocalist Sammy Hagar shared a video of a rendition of Van Halen song, ‘Right Now,’ and realized how he and Eddie Van Halen anticipated these days years ago.
The 1992 song ‘Right Now‘ was released for Van Halen’s ‘For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge‘ album. The album was placed at #1 on the Billboard 200 album chart and achieved to remain its place for weeks.
Recently on Twitter, Sammy Hagar shared a video of a rendition of the song ‘Right Now,’ which he recorded with his band ‘Sammy & The Circle.’ He pointed out the interesting detail about the lyrics of the song he and Eddie Van Halen wrote more than 30 years ago.
According to Sammy, the lyrics of the song seemed to be referring to the current protests against racism and police brutality happening in various countries. The original music video of the song, ‘Right Now,’ also reflected on social issues that were happening at the time in the world.
Here’s a part of the lyrics of Van Halen’s ‘Right Now’:
“Don’t want to wait ’til tomorrow
Why put it off another day
One more walk through problems
Built-up, and stand in our way, ah
One step ahead, one step behind me
Now you gotta run to get even
Make future plans, don’t dream about yesterday, hey
C’mon turn, turn this thing around”
On his recent tweet, Sammy Hagar mentioned the foreshadowing he and Eddie had in their song released more than 30 years ago:
“When I wrote this song with Eddie Van Halen over 30 years ago I had no idea it would be so relevant today. #LetTheMusicDoTheTalking #StopTheViolence #GivePeaceAChance”
