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.

Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you`re working with? I`m going to start my own blog soon but I`m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I`m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

I am really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A number of my blog audience have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post`s to be exactly I`m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content to suit your needs? I wouldn`t mind publishing a post or elaborating on most of the subjects you write concerning here. Again, awesome site!

First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I`d like to ask if you don`t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I`ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many thanks!|掲示板}

Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your webpage? My blog site is in the very same area of interest as yours and my visitors would definitely benefit from a lot of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this alright with you. Appreciate it!

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog? I`m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I`m thinking about creating my own but I`m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Many thanks

Hello! Quick question that`s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I`m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!
