"Here Comes the Sun" is a song by George Harrison from The Beatles' 1969 album Abbey Road. As of 18 November 2010, it is the band's most downloaded song on iTunes.
The song, one of Harrison's best-known Beatles' contributions alongside "Something", originated from a song-writing collaboration between Harrison and close friend Eric Clapton called "Badge" (recorded by Clapton's group Cream), which featured an arpeggiated guitar riff that is similar to the one that forms the bridge of "Here Comes the Sun". The year 1969 was a difficult one for Harrison: he was arrested for marijuana possession, he had his tonsils removed, and he had quit the band temporarily. The song was written while Harrison was away from all of these troubles.
