The lyrics of the The Beatles hit includes "Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter/ 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," hinting at a brighter future after difficult years and the threat of a global pandemic.
