Here's to Future Days is the fifth studio album by the British pop group Thompson Twins. It was the third and final release for the band as a trio, which was their most successful and recognisable line-up. Released in September 1985, it reached n. in the UK, and n. 0 in the US. Following on from the band's highly successful fourth album, Into the Gap, the writing and recording of Here's to Future Days began in late 1984

This song finds Thompson Twins frontman Tom Bailey singing about a disillusioned girlfriend that he loves so much, that he would give up all the riches and power in the world to make her happy. The song nicks a line from The Beatles "All You Need Is Love" when Bailey sings, "Love is all we need to get us through. Two different recordings of "King For A Day" were released: The UK single version featured the band's older, more synth-based sound, whilst the American and album versions was the guitar-led Rodgers production and featured some axe work from the Chic leader himself. This was the second US single from the LP Here's To Future Days.

Lyrics to "King For A Day" song by Thompson Twins: I know you well And I can tell Something's on your mind 'Cause in your dreams The demon screams I . .If I was King for just one day I have just one thing to say You know that love is all We need to get us through. I've heard it said Or maybe read Only money makes The world go round. But all the gold Won't heal your soul If your world should Tumble to the ground.

Thompson Twins were a British pop band that formed in April 1977. Initially a new wave group, they switched to a more mainstream pop sound and achieved considerable popularity from 1983, scoring a string of hits in the United Kingdom, the United States, and around the world. In 1993, they changed their name to Babble, to reflect their change in music from new wave to dub-influenced chill-out. They continued as Babble through 1996, at which point the group permanently dissolved.

The Thompson Twins recorded one album in this seven-piece incarnation, 1982's Set, which was released in America as In the Name of Love. The record was a bomb, and following its release, the group was trimmed to a trio - Bailey, Currie, and Leeway.
