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.

Most of what you state happens to be astonishingly legitimate and that makes me wonder why I hadn`t looked at this with this light previously. This particular article truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this subject matter goes. However at this time there is just one point I am not too cozy with so while I attempt to reconcile that with the actual central idea of your point, permit me observe what all the rest of your subscribers have to say.Very well done.

I know this if off topic but I`m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up? 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. Thank you

Hey terrific blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a large amount of work? I have very little knowledge of programming however I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, should you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic however I simply had to ask. Thank you!

My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he`s tryiong none the less. I`ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.

I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this matter and it really does supply me a lot of fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, through what I have seen, I simply trust as other feed-back pile on that folks remain on issue and not start upon a soap box regarding some other news du jour. Anyway, thank you for this outstanding piece and while I can not necessarily agree with it in totality, I respect the point of view.
