So I'm also in the On the Waterfront camp

id love to see it done in black and white like the movie with a gritty edge... but set today in terms of large black and white photos as backdrops that turn around to all white for the guard feature pairing couples interacting against the back drop 

tell the non literally story of love crossing boundaries aka WSS 

its a terrific piece of music and is very percussion dependent in many parts, I feel it would highlight the corps strengths while providing a subtle story line set to a powerful score. And yes, they should bring back the boxing rings lol 

Ok. Now I'm going to have to watch the movie.

Waterfront has moments for movement especially with a more Film Noir approach 

It also allows for massive moments of music and a big brass ballad moment 

Agree on the ballad.

 

After that, shove it in their face with a powerfull drill and hornline

I think after the parade of spandex, people would love this.  But a scores be ###### outlook would have to be taken.

What would they have to lose by bucking the trend at this point.

Don't get me wrong, I love what is currently happening in DCI. But it would be awesome for Cadets to do Waterfront, a powerfull story and music and just say ya know what. Here ya go.

Hence why I said, what do they have to lose. Bring it and say WTF, you don't like it, so be it. I preface that with, they better be monsters at clean and don't give a rats ### what judges think. I think If they pulled out a CADET show............score or not, they will be cowd favorites.

The ballad is a beautiful piece of music. Contrasts the volatile of the remainder of the score. Brilliant score by Mr. Bernstein.
