OMD live in 2011 If You Leave at SXSW

Ok, these guys are old but still pretty cool in my book. The hit song "If You Leave" from Pretty in Pink was a major teen anthem for many and prominently played at many High School Junior and Senior Proms.

Now, they are relegated to playing live at local bike shops.

In the cutaway shots, you can see some fellow forty year olds trying to get their groove on. I've seen this scene so many times replayed recently. There is sense of discomfort as middle age New Wavers try to get their groove on.

If You Leave.

Enola Gay

"Jumping Up and Down is compulsory." I guess they were sensing the awkwardness in the crowd.
