PSB moment at Royal Wedding

Great to hear "Hold on" played! Well, sort of.

Yes, Handel's "Eternal Source of Light Divine" was played at the beginning of the ceremony. Have to confess it took me a little while to recognize it, though, as it was quite slower than "Hold on".

Other half forced me to watch the thing.

That said, 5 year old daughter wanted to watch it too.

As soon as I heard it I said "Handel" and other half said "How do you know that?"

So played her Hold On, Instrumental.

Don’t get me started...
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

Calling it a PSB moment is stretching it. That’s like hearing the Nutcracker somewhere is a PSB moment.
This is a song about boys and girls. You hear it playing all over the world.

Rich man marries rich woman. The people of Britain dig holes so they can bow and scrape even lower than their feet. Stockholm syndrome as a cultural norm.

Well, in some way it is, since they liked it enough to make it a source of inspiration. And "Eternal Source..." isn't exactly a radio staple, is it?

There were some truly bizarre moments though. The Queen was obviously itching to leave during that rambling speech about love and fire, and so did everyone else. Even as a foreigner I could tell the mix of tradition and "modernity" was forced to say the least.

Yeah well I would've watched it only I had an appointment to have all my teeth pulled out with pliers with no anaesthetic followed by a lemon juice mouthwash.

Thanks for that Bulldog - I didn't know. :D

I watched bits of it and must say it was interesting for me ( an American ) to see. Such a Display of wealth and power, we just don’t have that here. Our current President would burn half the world just to have that happen once for him. The cult of personality is both an awesome and slightly terrifying thing to behold.
