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 don`t know if it`s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems with your site. It appears as though some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my browser because I`ve had this happen before. Many thanks

Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I`m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I`m thinking about creating my own but I`m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Appreciate it

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content 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 thought I`d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Many thanks

Hi, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog 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, terrific blog!

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!
