"Teardrop" is a song by Massive Attack which was first released on their 1998 album Mezzanine. It was released as a single on April 21 1998.
The original version of the song features vocals by Elizabeth Fraser (of the Cocteau Twins). An instrumental version of "Teardrop" serves as the theme song for the American version of House, a medical television series starring Hugh Laurie.
The song opens with a bass drum beat that is reminiscent of a heartbeat, lending itself easily to the show's medical theme.
The instrumental version was also featured on the TV series Prison Break, in the episode Tonight, during a scene that contained brief flashbacks of the reason each of the prime character wanted to escape.
