I have to admit I enjoyed it, especially the Queen doing the James Bond skit. I think the opening ceremony was a lot better than the closing one. My heart sank when I heard that the Spice Girls were performing, I thought the whole idea of iot was to showcase British talent and they were always sorely lacking in that area.
Fatboy Slim and Annie Lennox gave superb performances as always.
Love and magic have a great deal in common. They enrich the soul, and they both take practice.
