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 completely new to running a blog however I do write in my journal everyday. I`d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find many of your post`s to be just what I`m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content for yourself? I wouldn`t mind composing a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome web site!

I`m not sure why but this website is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I`ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

A lot of of what you claim is supprisingly appropriate and that makes me wonder why I hadn`t looked at this with this light before. Your piece really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this specific subject matter goes. However at this time there is 1 factor I am not necessarily too cozy with and while I try to reconcile that with the central theme of your position, permit me observe what the rest of the visitors have to point out.Well done.

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