The word "house" preceded by forms of the verb "to get" or similar verbs, is a colloquial term referring to a type of applause that occurs during a musical performance, especially an exhibition of jazz music. The musicians work to build incredible intensity, or other various, clever emotional connections to their audience, and when overcome by feelings of joy and appreciation, members may immediately and briefly clap, whistle or shout, to show their feelings of appreciation to the musician or musicians performing on stage. This type of display is inappropriate in various other settings, such as performances of traditional classical music.
"The sax player is playing a swingin' solo, and I'm glad he's really getting house!"

"Benny Goodman's solo was amazing, and throughout the three minutes he got so much house."

"Performing Thad Jones' sax soli brought a lot of house tonight."

One of the smartest medical dramas to ever have aired, House, M.D. features the maverick, anti-social doctor Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) who specializes in infectious diseases and does whatever it takes to solve the puzzling cases that come his way.

A show that should rob this year's Emmys if not for its sheer quality then for Laurie's brilliant acting.
Dr. House - "Sorry. Up late. Internet porn."
Dr. Chase - "Why aren't you in your office?"
Dr. House - "There's a computer in my office. If I log on, romance will ensue. My wrist might fall off."

A slang word with a hundred different definitions, 90% that were made up on the fly here at urbandictionary.com, to the point where it could be substituted for so many words you have no idea what the f**k someone would be talking about if he/she used each and every one.
A:Yo, I was listening to HOUSE at my HOUSE and my pants were HOUSED so low my HOUSE was hanging out. I then HOUSED up some Campbell's soup I HOUSED from the Bop-N-Ho. The stereotypical Indian storeowner got upset so I HOUSED that muhf**kah up.
B:Fa real?
A:Fa real. The Cowboys suck, I wish they'd take the HOUSE.
B:Man, I tell ya what, if the Cowboys take the HOUSE I'll HOUSE out my girl's HOUSE.
A:Fa real?
B:Fa real.

probably one of the best medical dramas ever to hit television, features Hugh Laurie, who plays the anti-social, sarcastic, pain in the ass doctor, who specializes in recognizing infectious diseases. He and his team of doctors take on extremely hard cases, House usually ends being right about the disease at the end of the day.

This show is truly great and it murders Scrubs.
Dr. House: (in a southern accent) Come on in, brothers and sister! Welcome to the house of the Lord!
Dr. Cameron: House, come on, the chapel?
Dr. House: We have been blessed with the miracle of a new symptom. Brother, can you testify as to why this poor child’s eyeball rolled back into his head?
Dr. Chase: It’s consistent with jimsonweed poisoning — ocular paralysis.
(a man sitting in the pew gets up and leaves)
Dr. Chase: (whispering) Sorry.
Dr. House: The wicked shall deceive ye, because they have turned from the Lord and are idiots. His ocular muscle didn’t paralyze. It pirouetted.
Dr. Cameron: MS…
Dr. House: It is easier for a wise man to gain access to heaven…
Dr. Cameron: Can you stop that? Just say not MS!

the MOST awesome show on television! (well, next to Scrubs) which stars the wonderful British actor, Hugh Lauire, as the genius, pain in the ass, Gregory House.

Pronunciation (hous)

House Music: The original electronic incarnation from disco. House typically runs around 120 beats per minute (BPM) and uses a 4/4 time sequence and an eight bar repeating cycle. The beat is maintained by a heavy kick drum that alternates in a 1-3 pattern with a high hat accent. Like its disco roots, house often features vocal choruses, real instrumentation, and a more traditional song structure.
