"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.
