That is incredible! Thanks, Mith. I wish I was there. The general audience certainly doesn't seem to have turned against Paul in Britain. And the whole stadium singing All You Need Is Love? Could the Olympics Games elicit any better response than that? ( although great thanks goes to that person who played it)

Has anybody else heard that the comedian Russel somebody or another is going to do a coic version of 'I Am The Walrus'? What an insult! I know the song was meant to be nonsensical and funny in a way but I think this will be a step too far.

5 Beatles or solo Beatle songs in the closing ceremony.

"Because" was the first song, sung by a choir.

A dance troupe danced to the transitions and Paul's part in ADitL

The choir sang the introduction to the Love version of Here Comes The Sun.

Imagine was probably the highlight of the show.

Russell Brand did I Am The Walrus. To be fair, he probably did it quite well... it's just he was surrounded by dancers not wearing very much and looking ridiculous.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

I think the whole night was a liitle bit of an insult to certain musical geniuses - Jessie J getting to sing with Queen? and obviuously Brand's version of 'I Am The Walrus' which wasn't bad but I think a bit wrong after playing 'Imagine'.

Regardless of what you think of "Hey Jude" here's why the song was chosen:

"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)
