    I'm not 100% sure, but I thinks it's a Massive Attack song. Haven't found any information about it myself. What about the credits after the episodes? Doesn't that say something, or the DVD box set?

    Here's the information from the Housemd-guide.com website FAQ This is a great site for getting information about House M.D. I use it all the time.

    Where is the theme music from?
    According to a note posted on the Internet Movie Database< House MD Forum, by rachel_lb "The theme song is 'Teardrop' by the group Massive Attack ." and jupiter0225 posted that it was on the album Mezzanine. And the closed captions also identify this as Teardrop from Massive Attack.

    edit: just in case the link above doesn't work here's the text of the url so you can copy and paste it into your browser

    Then what is the song at the end of each episode, when the credits start to show up? I've listened to teardrop and it doesnt match.

    No, it doesn't depend on the episode. When the screen goes to black after every episode, they pick up with the same theme. I was just wandering what that theme was.

    The theme is indeed a Massive Attack remix entitled "Teardrop", however, the original source music that Massive Attack used to make the track is a song called "Persian Teardrop", a collaberation between Dead Can Dance and Elizabeth Fraser.  It is an amazing song and while the remix for the opening credits of House is nice the full song is moving, makes you want so just move and sway.

    Myst

    The OPENING theme song is "Teardrop" by Massive Attack, which I have on my iPod- exactly the same song.

    The ENDING song, when the screen goes black, is a different song. This one is the UK theme song for House.

    Ok here's what you where looking for. In America, the song is Teardrop by Massive Attack. But, due to copyrights and licesing, the song isnt the same in the United Kingdom, Australia, Portugal(We rule!), Spain, Italy, Israel, New Zealand and Latin America. So, in these countries, a different song called House made by Scott Donaldson and Richard Nolan is used.

    Hello to one and all I hope you knowledgeble people can help me out:

    I've just watched the tail end of a house episode and am desperate to find the name of the track that was used.

    the setting was house in his 'office' 'playing' an imaginary keyboard whilst listening to an electronic track on his iPod. The new Chairman of the Board walks in and switches it off and discusses house's ploy about fooling the transplant panel over an operation, he then warns house that it is easier to remove board members than house himself.

    The episode finishes shortly thereaqfter and the track is used in the closing credits. I've downloaded Massive Attacks track and it's nont the one......

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated


    Tony

    not quite.

    what you are thinking of is a mash-up* called "Persian Teardrop".
    the mash-up is made from Massive Attack (w/ Liz Frasier) totally original song "Teardrop" and Dead Can Dance's "Persian Love Song".

    *Mashup, or bastard pop, is a musical genre which, in its purest form, consists of the combination (usually by digital means) of the music from one song with the a cappella from another. Typically, the music and vocals belong to completely different genres. At their best, bastard pop songs strive for musical epiphanies that add up to considerably more than the sum of their parts.
