Music Video Of The Day: Right Here Right Now by Jesus Jones (1990, directed by Matthew Amos)


Inspired by the collapse of Soviet-style communism in the late 80s and the early 90s (in particular, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the overthrow of Nicolae Ceaușescu in Romania), Right Here, Right Now not only sold over 1 million copies but it was also the most played song on college radio in 1991.

The video, which mixes performance footage with news footage from Eastern Europe, was the first music video to be directed by Matthew Amos.  Amos went on to direct videos for Stereo MCs, Manic Street Preachers, Slipknot, and the Charlatans.
