The Walrus said,
“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 .”
So throughout the olympics how many Beatley moments were there in all ?
We also had the ‘newspaper taxis’
The huge octopus
The crowd spontaneously singing “All You Need Is Love “
Some synchronized this or that swimming/diving to “Back In The USSR ” (I didn’t see that).
Of course Macca’s performance.

At the Velodome (the cycling track that I’m quite sure I’m misspelling) after the bronze medal victory (of Canada) in some women’s event, Paul led the crowd in Hey Jude .

I’m not sure that the newsaper taxis were a reference as such, you know. I think they were supposed to represent something, although what, I don’t know.
Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

There was certainly an intended reference to Lucy with the newspaper vehicles.
Help ! was played during the opening ceremony during the 60’s music overview and someone here mentioned some beatle thing in the horse course, i dont remember the details tho. Plus im sure there were references to IATW and the Pepper outfits were also on display in the Opening Ceremony.

In the equestrian, there was a jump-bar-thingy that was themed after Abbey Road .
“I was special. I always have been. Why didn't anyone notice me?"

Live And Let Die (not Beatles, but still) was the song used in one of the British gymnast’s floor routine.
