DEGRASSI SPOILERS below if you haven't seen the new episode yet. But if you watched and need to know what songs were playing, the generous Degrassi Music Team is happy to share the info and the stories behind how the songs got there!

Which songs were on Degrassi?

"Lay Your Heartbreak" by Winterpills
Fiona leaving a sad message on Charlie's phone. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
"This is a pretty depressing moment for Fiona -- so the song had to reflect that, obviously. The lyrics didn't match the scene per se, but having lyrics too on-the-nose can sound pretty nerdy. This was a delicate balance of feeling and lyrics, and they matched the scene very well."

"This Work" by Meligrove Band
Sav cuts Dave off-air after his Degrassi Radio rant. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
"There have been so many opportunities for this song -- its theme is so general and applicable to everyday life. But when this scene came along -- where we actually see how hard life can be for Adam -- the lyrics play a double-entendre. On Adam's side, obviously, he leads an abnormal life and it's tough to fit in. For Dave, we think it's just as tough -- he expressed himself in the wrong way, but in the end, he's just trying to fit in, too."
