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.

Do you have a spam issue on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; many of us have developed some nice practices and we are looking to trade solutions with other folks, why not shoot me an email if interested.

Great blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you

Hi there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask. Does running a well-established website like yours take a large amount of work? I`m brand new to blogging but I do write in my journal daily. I`d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

Heya this is kind of 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 guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It`s on a totally different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Superb choice of colors!

Most of what you state happens to be astonishingly legitimate and that makes me wonder why I hadn`t looked at this with this light previously. This particular article truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this subject matter goes. However at this time there is just one point I am not too cozy with so while I attempt to reconcile that with the actual central idea of your point, permit me observe what all the rest of your subscribers have to say.Very well done.
