Trying really fucking hard to not be part of the problem.

Right Now!


To refresh your memory, the video. Van Halen's "Right Now" is the theme song for the Republican National Convention, sure to be blasting from the speakers of the hockey area in St. Paul where all the action is going down this week. Across town, Republican booster Sammy Hagar will be performing at First Ave during the convention. "Come on turn, turn this thing around." You got it.

RIGHT NOW
(Van Halen)

Don't wanna wait 'til tomorrow.
Why put it off another day?
One by one, little problems.
Build up, and stand in our way. Oh!

One step ahead, one step behind it.
Now ya gotta run to get even.
Make future plans I'll dream about yesterday, hey!
Come on turn, turn this thing around.

(Right now) Hey! It's your tomorrow.
(Right now) Come on, it's everything.
(Right now) Catch your magic moment.
Do it right here and now.
It means everything.

Miss a beat, you lose a rhythm.
An nothin' falls into place. No!
Only missed by a fraction.
Slipped a little off your pace. Oh!

The more things you get, the more you want.
Just trade in one for another.
Workin' so hard to make it easy.
Whoa, got to turn. Come on, turn this thing around.

(Right now) Hey, it's your tomorrow.
(Right now) Come on, it's everything.
(Right now) catch that magic moment.
Do it right here and now.
It means everything.

Said a lie to me.
Right now.
What are ya waitin' for? Oh! Yeah!
Right now.

(Guitar Solo)

(Right now) Hey! It's your tomorrow.
(Right now) Come on, it's everything.
(Right now) Catch that magic moment.
And do it right, right now (Right now).
Oh, right now!

It's what's happening.
Right here and now.
Right now, it's right now.
Oh!
Tell me, what are ya waitin' for?
Turn this thing around.

It was also the theme song for Crystal Pepsi, and look how that worked out.
