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 enjoying the design and layout of your website. 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? Exceptional work!

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five 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 completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post`s to be just what I`m looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content available for you? I wouldn`t mind composing a post or elaborating on some of the subjects you write related to here. Again, awesome web site!

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A small number of my blog readers have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?

Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I`m using the same blog platform as yours and I`m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

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 recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I`m completely confused .. Any ideas? Many thanks!

Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Kudos

The very core of your writing while appearing reasonable initially, did not settle very well with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you managed to make me a believer unfortunately just for a very short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your leaps in logic and you would do well to help fill in all those breaks. In the event you actually can accomplish that, I will certainly end up being amazed.
