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`m really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A number of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this issue?

Almost all of whatever you say is supprisingly appropriate and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn`t looked at this with this light before. This particular article really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular subject goes. However at this time there is one particular position I am not really too comfy with and whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the actual main idea of the point, allow me observe just what all the rest of the readers have to say.Nicely done.

Hello! I know this is kinda off topic however , I`d figured I`d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My website addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!

At this time it seems like BlogEngine is the top blogging platform out there right now. (from what I`ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Hi are using Wordpress for your site platform? I`m new to the blog world but I`m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I`ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being ripped off? I`d really appreciate it.

First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I`d like to ask if you don`t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Many thanks!|掲示板}

I am curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be using? I`m having some small security issues with my latest site and I`d like to find something more safe. Do you have any suggestions?
