Law & Order UK Does Away with the Classic Theme

I’m not sure how I feel about the new theme, which premiered last night in the UK. Way too adrenaline-laced and bombastic – heavy on the brass and light on the woodwinds. What, you Britons got something against the clarinet?

Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
