Ben WheelerAny day that is blessed with listening to one of the many great Minds albums, so naturally there's many 'perfect days' Jim! 😉

Yvonne BirdIt would always combine travel, history and music, family/ friends...... And so what could ever be more perfect than another Simple Minds concert in Taormina. :-)

Larelle Priptona ReadA day planned around going to a Minds gig? Is that too obvious? Lol. Only had two of those days so far :-( I want more! When are we getting tour dates, sir!??? Failing that...a doughnut date in Glasgow will do! (I'll keep trying....you've gotta take a break SOMETIME!)

Lucy LocketI had a perfect day recently on the isle of Harris. Walking on deserted sandy beaches on a blustery but sunny day. Felt grounded and at ease. Perfect

SirHill BearHardEach time I think of 2 movies where the song was used: Dany Boyle's Trainspotting and a french one Le Premier Jour du Reste de ta Vie ( First Day of your Life Remaining). 2 different movies but the song fits so well!!

And the singer choosing to stop in the middle of verse one of Let There Be Love to dedicate it to us..... Wow! Never had the chance to say thank you for that yet - so thank you!!!

Tracy DrenicBeing with our family, enjoying happy times and fun, also holidays or just a day at the coast. Holiday best this year was visiting Villa Angela, beautiful hotel & location, we had the added surprise of meeting you there JK, made the holiday complete for Ross and I. Brilliant team at Villa Angela, really lovely and friendly. Make sure you tell the Villa Angela team how great they are, JK, when your next there! :-)

Elizabeth ReidFortunate to be enjoying many perfect (and sunny!) days on a grand tour of Scotland! Have travelled from Cambridge to Glasgow, stopping en route, all the way up to the Isle of Lewis and Harris (simply stunningly gorgeous) and back down the East. Breathtakingly beautiful views. Now enjoying a couple of relaxing days in Edinburgh and saw a perfectly timed sunrise this morning crossing the Forth Bridge. Just wow.

Anatis SpectatoremMy idea of a perfect day? Can't get any better than dipping my feet into the North Sea last night and into the Baltic Sea tonight. And to almost get drowned in my old tent during the first of three heavy thunderstorms last night with lots of rain. And to have to spend the rest of the night in an old car smelling petrol because of a leaking petrol can in the boot. And to drive around the beach, watching the seagulls floating on the sea in the rain and to finally find a deserted ferry station where to fill the rest of the leaking petrol can into the tank of the car. Barefoot, in pyjamas, wet all over, and with no more dry clothes left since everything got soaked in the flooded tent. Days to remember - for sure. But lots of fun. :)

Mo ShahSun out, going for a drive with the roof down and my tunes blasting out. Followed by a night out getting inebriated and dancing to modern music as you have to be under the influence to dance to them. In ideal world the music would be 70s, 80s & 90s.

Marlene ColangeloVisiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC - The Shady Ladies Exhibit, cutting flowers and picking vegetables from my garden, time with my dogs, a walk on the beach at sunset, a nice cocktail, of course a Simple Minds concert and then to humor Thibaut Hingrai, end it all with perfect sex!

Debbie Richardson LewisMy idea of a perfect day,in my imagination,would be to capture the essence of your concerts with my camera..I would be your camera girl for all your gigs and be in heaven as I snap away while you and the guys caress my ears with your magical music..in the real world,I just like to go for a walk with my dog and snap away at the beach and the wondrous skies ♥

Sue BarbosaThanks Jim and SM for your thoughts and for all the music which brings Italy to mind: "I Travel" being a prime example. My first husband was Italian and we travelled Italy widely during our marriage - Taormina was a particular favourite of ours even before we knew about Villa Carlotta. Recently made friends with a diamond pal from Milazzo Claudio Talotta. So love affair with Italy starting all over again!
