    Bird York
    Near the end of the episode — up to the point at which the patient leaves the hospital — the song in the background is Bird York's "In The Deep" from her CD "The Velvet Hour".
    (Ms York also played Toby's ex wife in "The West Wing".)
    This song was identified in the closed captioning.

    OperaWhat was the Opera House was listening to on his iPod in the locker room before and after he had his team listen to the heart beats?
    "Nessan Dorma (no one sleeps) from Puccini's Turandot". This whole opera is available on this album "Puccini - Turandot / Sutherland · Pavarotti · Caballé · Ghiaurov · Krause · Pears · LPO · Mehta " although we do not know if this is the version that House was listening to.
