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.

With every thing that appears to be building throughout this particular subject matter, all your viewpoints tend to be quite stimulating. Nevertheless, I am sorry, but I do not subscribe to your entire plan, all be it refreshing none the less. It looks to everyone that your opinions are actually not entirely rationalized and in actuality you are your self not even entirely certain of your argument. In any event I did appreciate reading through it.

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

I do like the way you have presented this specific situation plus it does provide me personally some fodder for thought. However, through what precisely I have witnessed, I basically wish as the actual reviews pile on that people continue to be on issue and in no way embark on a soap box regarding the news du jour. All the same, thank you for this superb point and though I can not really agree with this in totality, I value the viewpoint.

I know this if off topic but I`m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I`m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I`m not very internet smart so I`m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
