How the musical part of the closing ceremonies should have gone

Just a tad…

This goes out to everyone that watched the closing ceremonies of Vancouver’s 2010 Olympics:  On behalf of the many Canadian Twitters that enjoy and love Canadian Music, we just want to say sorry for the lack luster effort we put out for you, the WOLRD to see.  After Neil Young’s Long May You Run this is who you should have seen and what you should have heard.  Again sorry.
