Posted on Mar 25, 2011 by Mary

Here's info on all of this week's Gigantic and Degrassi songs (including Degrassi music supervisor commentary -- all the quotes in italics).

JBM music on TeenNick's Degrassi

"Cleo's Song / Years" by JBM
From the scenes where Sav tells Alli he has her back, and where the Bhandaris all agree to communicate better.
Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
" JBM really touched us; the entire album, Not Even In July is a heartfelt symphony of emotion, and it carried beautifully to television. These songs appear in the show in reverse order: on the album, the beautiful musical masterpiece 'Years' is followed by the nostalgic sadness of 'Cleo's Song'. There were moments in Alli's dad's speech where 'Years' hit everything at just the right moment, lifted the scene, lowered it, sent shivers down your spine. These songs mark a truly beautiful moment in Degrassi history, a moment of change, acceptance and honest love."

"Write It All Down for You" by Elliott Brood
From when Holly J is visiting her own personal pharmacy in her locker.
" We've always been big Elliott Brood fans, a great Canadian act that has built itself a strong fanbase and solid reputation over the years. It's a lyrically powerful song, but this moment was more musical than lyrical, hitting all the right drums, shouting all the right tones for the scene."

"Pogo" by Eternal Summers
Take a wild guess which scene this was in.
"When it came time to spot this episode, we couldn't help but think of the song 'Pogo' for Wesley's pogo scene. It was one of those times when the song appeared out of nowhere, just in the nick of time, and was so crazy that it actually worked!"
