Because nothing beats singing the chorus of Hey Jude 50 times? :)
Oh and he is also pretty awesome... ;P

I only wonder why the Royal suddenly all seem to have put on something black. HM, Catherine, Sophie... Is there something going on we don't know about? I hope not!

Did I just see everyone standing for Sir Paul?

Catherine has had a black coat on since she arrived, and as for other royals it has got pretty cold from what the news reporters are saying.

She's been wearing them from the start and wore them for the Golden Jubilee concert as well.


My favourite song after Hey Jude, Let It Be.

Because he's probably the greatest living Briton along with the Queen? Or because he was part of the greatest band of all time? Or because that band is the biggest selling of all time?

Also probably because Led Zeppelin are no longer together and Freddie Mercury is dead which rules out Queen.

Well, Brian May did sing with the We Will Rock You cast at the Golden Jubilee Celebrations, he even played God Save the Queen on the roof on the Buckingham Palace.
To be honest, that Jubilee was much more fun.

Tropping the colour is traditionally the 3rd saturday of june - therefore this year its 16th

Granted Sir Paul has the status and ability to close events

Traditionally it is actually the 2nd Saturday, and it is very rarely held on the 3rd Saturday of the month.

Live and Let Die, appropriate? Damn good song though! Fireworks.
