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.

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.

I know this if off topic but I`m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I`m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I`m not very web savvy so I`m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Please let me know if you`re looking for a author for your site. You have some really good articles and I believe I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I`d love to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an e-mail if interested. Cheers!

In the grand design of things you`ll secure an A for hard work. Where exactly you actually lost me personally was in the details. You know, they say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn`t be more accurate at this point. Having said that, allow me reveal to you what exactly did do the job. The writing is actually really convincing and that is most likely the reason why I am taking an effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, although I can easily see a jumps in logic you make, I am definitely not sure of just how you appear to unite the details which in turn make the conclusion. For the moment I shall subscribe to your position however trust in the foreseeable future you actually link your facts better.
