New Wave Wednesday: "If You Leave", by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (music video)

Today's pic for New Wave Wednesday comes from Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, also called OMD.  From the movie Pretty in Pink, "If You Leave".

Via Wikipedia:
The group was founded in 1978 by Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys. Adding Malcolm Holmes and Martin Cooper by the end of 1980, this quartet (with occasional line-up fluctuations) was the core of the outfit until 1989, when Humphreys, Cooper and Holmes all left OMD to found The Listening Pool. McCluskey then retained the OMD name and continued to record and tour as OMD with new line-ups through 1996.
