Given that I wrote about the Olympic opening ceremony on here, I should probably blog about the closing ceremony last night. The problem is, I did not find it that inspiring. It was okay, I suppose. I think it was more oriented towards music this time, which is fair enough, but I found it less spectacular than the opening ceremony: there was less humour in it – no bits with bond or rowan atkinson. Also, to my ear some of it was out of tune and/or distorted. I found the inclusion of Eric Idle singing ‘Always Look on the Bright Side of Life‘ a good touch, but apart from that I wasn’t that enthused. Oh well, at least we still have the Paralympic ceremonies to look forward to.
