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.

Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I`ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Throughout this grand scheme of things you actually secure an A+ just for hard work. Where exactly you actually confused me was first in your specifics. As it is said, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn`t be more accurate in this article. Having said that, let me reveal to you just what did do the job. Your authoring is very engaging and this is most likely why I am making an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, whilst I can easily notice a jumps in reasoning you come up with, I am not really certain of how you seem to connect your ideas which inturn make your final result. For right now I will, no doubt subscribe to your point but hope in the foreseeable future you link the dots better.

Admiring the dedication you put into your site and in depth information you provide. It`s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn`t the same outdated rehashed material. Wonderful read! I`ve saved your site and I`m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
