"i never woke up in handcuffs before"

A sample of Hans Zimmer's score from the movie "Sherlock Holmes."  The deep tuba mixed with the screechy violin notes and the playful beats on the snare(?) give this piece a circus-like feel, fitting the comedic situation Holmes finds himself in at the end of the song- naked and in handcuffs.



I'm almost certainly downloading this soundtrack off of iTunes now.  Edgy violin pieces are the only type of music I know of that is simultaneously classy and rebellious.
