Today, two of the sons of late-80s megastar Richard Marx were on the local news singing and playing guitar. Found out later that Marx, his wife former actress Cynthia Rhodes, and their kids live several miles from me. Freaky stuff. The song “Right Here Waiting” will always have significance for me. Yet another in a long line of songs that takes me back instantly to a certain place in time, a day in 1989, leaving for college and saying goodbye to my girlfriend.
