McCartney Proclaims, `Welcome to London`

  • Source: macca-central.com
  • 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.

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I`m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I`d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Thanks

I know this if off topic but I`m looking into starting my own blog 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 web smart so I`m not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

The very heart of your writing while appearing agreeable in the beginning, did not really sit properly with me after some time. Someplace throughout the paragraphs you actually were able to make me a believer but just for a while. I still have got a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one would do nicely to fill in those breaks. In the event you can accomplish that, I would undoubtedly be fascinated.

The core of your writing whilst sounding reasonable initially, did not sit well with me personally after some time. Someplace throughout the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but just for a very short while. I nevertheless have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one might do nicely to help fill in all those breaks. When you can accomplish that, I would certainly be impressed.
