“British Eighth March” is one of my favorite marches, and this is my favorite recording. The tempo is a little faster than I have heard it elsewhere.
This piece has special meaning for Northwestern State University fans. The lyrics to the fight song were written by my friend, med school classmate, and fellow Northwestern graduate Larry Powell.
Go ye Demons take the field. Northwestern Demons never yield. So, fight Demons win tonight, victory is on our side!
Go! Fight! Win!
Purple and white shall ever reign, filling the air with battle strain. So, Demons forever stand and fight for dear old Demonland.
