Days Like This is one of the most iconic songs written by Sir Van Morrison who today celebrates his 70th birthday, while we all look on with admiration.

As our supplement in today's paper shows, Van Morrison is an extraordinarily creative songwriter and musician who has brought immense credit to himself and his native Northern Ireland.

Today Van is marking the occasion with two special concerts, and the tickets have been as valuable as gold dust. Over so many years he has been in the headlines, but in every age Van Morrison has allowed his music to speak for itself.

Today we all salute Sir Van and wish him well. There will be other Days Like This, but today is very special.
