Many New Wave hits have lyrics that could be seen as marching band related, like DEVO's Whip It which urges band members to get it straight and go forward, or The Fixx's Saved By Zero, which is how the band feels when halftime is over.
So it makes sense that a cover version of a New Wave song would sound better when played by a marching band!
The Saint Pius X Catholic High School Marching Golden Lions proudly presents New Wave the marchy march way.
Those plucky Marching Golden Lions really seem to be channeling that New Wave vibe, although they should probably cut off their sleeves, apply some eyeliner and feather their hair to truly go retro.
