80s pop love songs Ballad richard marx


"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. From the album "Repeat Offender" B-side "Hold on to the Nights (Live at the Palace Theatre)" Released July 5, 1989 Format 7" single CD single Cassette Genre Pop / Adult Contemporary Length 4:24 Label EMI Writer(s) Richard Marx Producer Richard Marx, David Cole Certification RIAA Platinum "Right Here Waiting" was the second single from Repeat Offender, after "Satisfied". 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 Marx's vocal accompanied only by guitar (by Bruce Gaitsch) and keyboards (by Vanston). It is one of Marx's most frequently covered compositions. "Right Here Waiting" debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart at #44, the week of July 8, 1989, and became his third consecutive #1 single on August 12, 1989. Certified Gold on August 21, the record spent three consecutive weeks at the summit, dislodged by Paula Abdul's "Cold Hearted", the week of September 2, 1989. The song was his first of several to go to #1 on the Hot Adult Contemporary Chart. Certified Platinum on October 16, 1989, "Right Here Waiting" is Marx's best selling single. It is also his most enduring, charting in the top 15 of Billboard's Hot Adult Contemporary Recurrents chart for four years running—from 2000-2003, more than ten years after its release. "Right Here Waiting" is covered by Monica and it is a single on her second studio album The Boy Is Mine. It features R&B band 112.


Richard Noel Marx (born September 16, 1963 in Chicago, Illinois) is a singer-songwriter best known for his adult contemporary music. He had a string of successful hit singles in the late 80s and early 90s such as "Right Here Waiting," "Hazard," and "Hold on to the Nights." Although most of his successful songs are slow ballads like these, many of his songs have an upbeat, classic rock style, examples being "Don't Mean Nothing," "Should've Known Better," "Satisfied," and "Wait for the Sunrise".

Right Here Waiting - Richard Marx

Oceans apart day after day
And I slowly go insane
I hear your voice on the line
But it doesn't stop the pain

If I see you next to never
How can we say forever

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I took for granted, all the times
That I thought would last somehow
I hear the laughter, I taste the tears
But I can't get near you now

Oh, can't you see it baby
You've got me goin' crazy

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I wonder how we can survive
This romance
But in the end if I'm with you
I'll take the chance

Oh, can't you see it baby
You've got me goin' crazy

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you
