that was a great closing ceremony. My highlites included Pet shop boys, John Lennon, Kaizer Chiefs, the Daivd Bowie fashion spot and Madness. Still thought the other stuff was entertaining enough even if it wasn't my cup of tea. Lucky for me i pvr'd it, so i could FF past Annie Lennox, Take that and the today's hits section.

btw. why doesn't Liam Gallagher just go by "Liam Gallagher" now. Beady eye? first off bad name. second off, no one cares about the 'band' they're only looking at you because you're liam gallagher the frontman of some old band.

My ex had one... and I didn't like her (the dog, not the gf) at all. Too small. No offense to Shadowfax, but personally I think a dog (as a pet) should be at least 30-40 lbs.

It was just a recording used to lead up to Eric idle's bit. Mr Blue Sky.

I'm still trying to figure out how Ray Davies can look like my grandmother.

Brian May playing the opening for Brighton Rock was a highlight for me, although he looked like an old grandmother himself.

And who the fuck is Jenny J.

I just hope all the bodysuits gets carried over to Rio. Their logo is already transcendently superior. Throw in some perfect ass in large numbers of body suits and Rogge may return to using the phrase "best games ever".

Yeah the Kate inclusion was cool, although I was a fan pre running up the hill.

Would've loved some footage of Strummer and Ian Curtis to go with Lennon and Freddie. And a reunion of the Smiths, or Morrisey and Marr at least, would've been fun.

Oh man. that would have made me bawl uncontrollably. However Morrissey just doesn't seem very "olympic"

Can i also just point out how annoying i found Duthie and especially Jennifer Hedger. On a few occassions he had some kind of weird/innapropriate comments about Christine Sinclair. and really anytime they spoke it had a profound negative effect on the overall enjoyment of the ceremony.

Shit Hedger has been pretty intolerable during these past 2 weeks.

agree with you guys about Jessie "who fucking cares" J...the word horrible pretty much sums up her performance...such a letdown when she was matched up with Queen

highlights for me were the videos of John and Freddy...got goosebumps for both

to each his own my friend
just think she's a phenomenal talent...incredibly sexy and incredibly sexy voice...i was thrilled when Howard Shore asked her to do "Into The West" for LOTR...she nailed it

edit - had to include the tune

Annie Lennox is an amazing talent. Don't find her to be sexy, but great talent. Would have loved to see Sade there, now that is a sexy voice. And she's from London. I was expecting Elton John to be there to be honest. Now i was in and out during the closing ceremonies so maybe i missed him but i never heard anything about him being there. Both would have been 100x better than The Spice Girls.

Yeah, Peter Gabriel is another one that would have great. But maybe some of these people we're bringing up were asked but couldn't or didn't want to. Who knows.
