That reminds me, during the part where they had those people jumping around in what I can best describe as punk costumes, I suddenly burst out laughing. My parents looked at me weirdly and I explained that it occurred to me at that moment that the Queen had to sit there and listen to the Sex Pistols (who are notoriously anti-monarchist, mind). We all had a good giggle.
But seriously, all whining aside, the first hour or so of the Opening Ceremony was spectacular, especially the first 20-30 minutes. You done good, Boyle.
Opening Ceremony ran too long and they had to cut the last musical bit.
We missed out on these songs being performed:
David Bowie - Heroes
Eric Spear - Coronation Street Theme
Ron Grainer - Doctor Who Theme
John Philip Sousa - Monty Python Theme/The Liberty Bell
David Bowie - Absolute Beginners
THEY PUT PINK FLOYD’S ECLIPSE!!!!!!! :D
