Van Halen – “Right Now” Intro Cover By 16-Year Old Sina
Catch That Magic Moment!
“Right Now” was written and recorded by Van Halen for their ninth studio album “For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge.” It was released on February 15, 1992. The song talks about being unafraid of making a change and living in the “now.” Sammy Hagar said that the lyrics to this timeless classic was the best thing he has ever written for Van Halen.
- Mark Fenske directed the music video
- During the MTV Video Music Awards in 1992, the video won Best Video, Best Editing, and Best Direction
Vocalist Sammy Hagar has said that he was writing the lyrics to this song at the studio very late one night, and he heard Eddie Van Halen in an adjacent room working on a piano melody. Hagar said he suddenly realized that “we were writing the same song,” so he walked into the room and began singing his words over Van Halen’s music.
This was also used for an advertisement for Crystal Pepsi in 1993. The product was a complete flop even though the commercial was good. Pepsi also had the rights to the song and instead of having other people record it, Van Halen just let them use their own version.
The song has also been used a number of times by U.S. political candidates.
In this cover, 16-year-old Sina plays the drums, piano, guitar and bass to cover the song’s introduction. As young as she is, she sure knows how to showcase her talent! It was an excellent performance and this girl truly understands her musical instruments!
