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.

Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I`ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I`m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I`m still new to everything. Do you have any points for inexperienced blog writers? I`d really appreciate it.

The root of your writing while sounding reasonable initially, did not really settle perfectly with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you were able to make me a believer but only for a while. I still have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one might do nicely to fill in all those gaps. When you actually can accomplish that, I will definitely end up being fascinated.

Whoa! This blog looks just like my old one! It`s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Great choice of colors!

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. However think of if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this website could certainly be one of the greatest in its niche. Fantastic blog!

A large percentage of of whatever you assert happens to be astonishingly appropriate and that makes me wonder why I had not looked at this in this light before. This article really did switch the light on for me as far as this particular subject matter goes. But there is actually one issue I am not really too comfy with and whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual central theme of your point, allow me see what the rest of your readers have to say.Very well done.
