For as long as we can remember, music lovers have been singing their way through disastrous times ... and the current coronavirus pandemic is no different.

Social media feeds have been awash with a multitude of coronavirus-themed song parodies communicating the important messages of hygiene whilst also poking fun at social restrictions.

But we think we may have just discovered the best parody yet!

Rejigging Billy Joel's 1983 hit 'For the Longest Time,' bishops from the Highland 19th Ward Bishopric of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Utah have brought the song into the current day with the new norm of living during the pandemic.

Why did they create the parody? Because we could all use a laugh in these unprecedented times.

Bishop Shawn McLelland said: "It's been a rough year! We never expected it to leak out and go viral, but are happy it has brought some joy to folks."

Too good!
