McCartney Proclaims, `Welcome to London`

  • Source: macca-central.com
  • 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.

The very heart of your writing while appearing agreeable in the beginning, did not really sit properly with me after some time. Someplace throughout the paragraphs you actually were able to make me a believer but just for a while. I still have got a problem with your jumps in assumptions and one would do nicely to fill in those breaks. In the event you can accomplish that, I would undoubtedly be fascinated.

The core of your writing whilst sounding reasonable initially, did not sit well with me personally after some time. Someplace throughout the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but just for a very short while. I nevertheless have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one might do nicely to help fill in all those breaks. When you can accomplish that, I would certainly be impressed.

Howdy this is somewhat 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 expertise so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I`m getting fed up of Wordpress because I`ve had issues with hackers and I`m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren`t loading correctly. I`m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I`ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.
