As a teenager I did not quite understand the bitter sarcasm and not-so-subtle phallic imagery in the Buckingham-penned song "Tusk," though I thought the song was especially quirky and catchy.
I find "Tusk" to be one of the best uses of a marching band in a pop song, though admittedly this is a small sub-genre of music. While listening today to the live Fleetwood Mac collection The Dance, I was intrigued by the live appearance of the USC Trojan Marching Band, who reprised their 1979 contributions to the original "Tusk." Here is the video of the performance, courtesy of YouTube:
The reaction of the crowd to the unannounced marching band is especially worth studying; can you imagine attending a Fleetwood Mac concert and suddenly being treated with such an aural and visual extravaganza? This is worth at least a NetFlix rental to experience in higher definition the talented Marching Trojans, though perhaps calling New York movers is a bit extreme.
