Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter.

“Here Comes The Sun” was released on The Beatles’ final studio, Abbey Road, in the summer of 1969. (Yeah, I know it was actually released before Let It Be, but it was the last one they recorded, so to me at least, it should be considered their last album.)

What is there really left to say about The Beatles’ music? I believe they will maintain their reputation as the greatest musical act of all time until there is no one left to remember them….it’s just light years beyond anyone else has come close to accomplishing.

This is my second video for a track from Abbey Road (also did “Octopus’s Garden”) and it was begun at the same time I started that video. It’s been sitting around forever (mainly because I was also working on a video for Elton’s “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me”…and I couldn’t ever decide which one feature the clip of the birds/sun clip that I really love….whatever, I’ll use it in both!), and I wanted to try and push it out. As always with many of the old unfinished projects, it’s always tempting to just start over (especially when some of the elements are were not the greatest quality)…in this case I still liked some of the original photos I’d selected and some of the stuff I’d already put in (one sequence will be familiar to those who’ve seen my video for George’s “Tired Of Midnight Blue”)….so I just worked up a few new effects to spruce it a bit and resisted the urge to get too wild (saving some ideas for other Abbey Road tracks!).

As usual HUGE THANKS to everyone who’s art made this new art possible….THANK YOU!!!! Special thanks to SeaOtterSoup Channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/seaottersoup)….for his amazing shot of the birds over the sun!)

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right

Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been clear

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
It’s all right, it’s all right
