I have blogged about this, but, the theme song from House M.D. is such an important entity in the world of theme songs. It fits and suits the show very, very well, and is an integral part of its character; not to mention, the song rocks.
The theme song is “Teardrop” by Massive Attack, a British music production duo. Since Massive Attack is composed of two guys, and, if you’ve heard the full version of “Teardrop,” you’d probably be wondering, “who’s the girl singing?” That would be Elizabeth Fraser of the Scottish band, The Cocteau Twins. “Teardrop” came from the Massive Attack’s album Mezzanine.
In some countries (where House M.D. is sydicated), due to rights and licensing issues, “Teardrop” is not used as theme opening theme (bummer). Instead, original music composed by Jon Ehrlich (not commercially available) is used. Jon Ehrlich is part of the the team who creates original music for the series.
