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 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 internet smart so I`m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

Hello would you mind letting me know which hosting company you`re utilizing? I`ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a honest price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!

Do you have a spam issue on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; many of us have created some nice methods and we are looking to swap strategies with other folks, be sure to shoot me an e-mail if interested.
