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.

Excellent blog you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about in this article? I`d really love to be a part of community where I can get responses from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Cheers!

Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I`m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

I`m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It`s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Fantastic work!

This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

FNPe5t Very nice post and right to the point. I don`t know if this is actually the best place to ask but do you guys have any thoughts on where to employ some professional writers? Thanks in advance :)

Just about all of what you state happens to be supprisingly appropriate and that makes me ponder why I had not looked at this in this light previously. This piece truly did turn the light on for me as far as this particular issue goes. Nonetheless at this time there is actually 1 position I am not necessarily too comfortable with so whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual central idea of your position, let me see what the rest of your visitors have to point out.Very well done.

Amazing blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers? I`m hoping to start my own blog soon but I`m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I`m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!

Howdy! I know this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask. Does running a well-established blog like yours take a massive amount work? I`m completely new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary daily. I`d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
