McCartney Proclaims, `Welcome to London`

  • Source:
  • By: Mike Kovacich

After a spectacular fireworks display, the cameras focused on the stage and Paul McCartney opens up the final closing ceremony with "The End".  Then a PA announcement, "Sir Paul McCartney", and then he starts right into "Hey Jude". With what seems extra longer hair than usual, Paul certainly look the proudest I've seen him on-stage.

Any McCartney fan watching just knew he would be going to the sing along part of Hey Jude and sure enough, he enthusiastically jumps from his piano to the center stage microphone, "Just the guys now", for two rounds and "Now the girls". Cameras panning the crowd and the Olympics atheletes from all over the world singing along.

What a perfect song for this event. Paul proclaims on the closing chord after a few yeahs and some pretty good ooohs, "Welcome to London".

Below is a video from youtube, but the Olympic Committee is removing such videos so don't know how long it will remain viewable.

I`m curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be using? I`m having some minor security problems with my latest blog and I`d like to find something more safeguarded. Do you have any suggestions?

Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you got your design. Thanks a lot

It`s a shame you don`t have a donate button! I`d most certainly donate to this outstanding blog! I guess for now i`ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to new updates and will talk about this website with my Facebook group. Chat soon!

Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I`ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I`m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I`m still new to everything. Do you have any points for inexperienced blog writers? I`d really appreciate it.

The root of your writing while sounding reasonable initially, did not really settle perfectly with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you were able to make me a believer but only for a while. I still have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one might do nicely to fill in all those gaps. When you actually can accomplish that, I will definitely end up being fascinated.
