But the kid in me wished they had run more with the Mary Poppins theme!
It was my favorite movie as a child and it still is!
Like Kennith Branagh could have sung 'Feed the birds' in the countryside scene.
Then the whole chorus could have sung 'Chim Chim Cheri' as the scary chimney stacks appeared.
'Just a spoonful of sugar' for the lovely Great Ormond Street Childrens' hospital scene.
After the delightful arrival of the Queen, why not 'Oh its a lovely holiday with Mary!'
Then 'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' sung by Rowan I adore Atkinson to lead the Parade of Nations.
And finally Sir Paul could have led the stadium to finish off with ‘Lets go fly a kite!’
Like I said I adored that movie - and it really still resonates with current times, as the parents of the children who Mary Poppins looked after were Mr And Mrs Bank. And the husband did work for the bank and there was that dramatic scene near the end, when the bankers tried to stop the kids from wanting to feed the birds with their pocket money!
Still, having chirped that 'Wow!'
