    Hi all, I am a big fan of House and really like the opening title music. However, I have tried to find out what it is called and can only find the "teardrops" by Massive Attack. Unfortunately this isn't the title music they play in the UK and further investigations turned up that there was some licensing issue and they weren't allwoed to use "teardrops" for the UK series. Can anyone tell me what the music is that they play at the start of House in the UK?
    Thanks,
    Charlie

    I'm guessing they're using what's only called The House Theme. Don't know where you could find it though...

    Hi yourself, Charlie. The intro music you are talking about is I believe also known as the European House theme. You can listen to it here, and in the info note of the video there's a link to download it.

    Yes very common

    Here in the UK we live in a dictatorship

    Our program makers have no imagination

    So we get all our stuff second hand from you guys

    They change the music like changing the packaging to create the illusion that its completely new

    then they cut out all the best bits

    we miss out on the best of everything

    And having in mind that you gave the world Hugh Laurie, it sounds even more unfair...

    No, sorry, that is NOT the UK House theme music. The UK version has a heavy bass line and is very different to the song you posted in your link. The search goes on . . .

    Hi..the theme tune is called 'Teardrop' by Massive Attack. Type it into youTube-and you'll hear the whole thing-all 6 minutes of it. Brilliant!
