The Olympic Closing Party


I have just finished a somewhat animated phone conversation with Nigel .
We picked the closing ceremony of the Olympics to pieces
and both agreed the whole thing should have been that little bit more camp with Dame Shirley shaking some of her 70 year old butt to an audience that obviously loved a bit of tongue in cheek entertainment
If Wales ever gets the Olympics.....Mr Coe  please note.....my fee is a lot less than Danny Boyle's
ps. Chris Hoy ( I am reliably informed) LOVES Shirley Bassy!

  1. Actually I rather enjoyed the 'closing' more than I did the 'opening'. Liked bands/solos I had never seen before. From where I was sitting it looked pretty spectacular.

  2. Where was Tom Jones? I'd have much rather seen him centre stage than the odious George Michael. And The Rolling Stones? Are they saving them up for the Queen's eventual funeral?

  3. I think you are on to something... just not sure how it would be funded.
    Dame Shirley though, that would have been genius.

  7. I bet you could put together a fab bash! My fave night out of the year so far was when me and my sis went down Canal Street in Manchester. It reminded us of nights out in SHeffield in the late 70's/80's - all disco and spangle and "I never can say goodbye boy". Chuffing love it! x

  8. Ray Davies was the best thing in it.

  9. I was more interested that they made Kaiser Chiefs play a Who song when the Who were there anyway..... all because they didn't have the bollocks to let them play "I predict a riot"

  10. It took us a while to get into it...but after a few drinks it seemed to be fabulous...

  11. Shirley Bassey would have been a lot more exciting than the cringingly out-of-tune Emeli Sandé. And Tom Jones singing Baby Please Make A Change would have been hot stuff as well.
