Not the London 2012 Olympics
I’m sure we all agree that the Opening Ceremony to the London 2012 Olympic Games was pretty amazing. Plenty of highlights, although the musical montage from Millie Jackson’s My Boy Lollipop to David Bowie’s Heroes really sorted it for me. I’d been out when the tv coverage started and missed Danny Boyle’s pastoral idyll. So here to remedy that is my own tribute to England’s green and pleasant land ..
