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!

TeenNick's Degrassi

"Get Loose" (remix) by Quanteisha
Marisol's Little Miss Steaks party song. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
" Marisol had her tunes on her iPod -- so it was really fun to figure out what she would actually listen to. This Quanteisha song was perfect, Marisol definitely likes the fat bass line and groovy chorus."

"Big Bird in a Small Cage" by Patrick Watson
Eli struggles with creativity, takes his pills. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
" Among the most powerful moments we've seen so far, we knew the scene would need the perfect, most emotionally driven song we could find, and came up with one of our very most cherished songs, "Big Bird in a Small Cage". The scene, lyrics and music all speak for themselves, and we sincerely encourage you to go find more about the artist, Patrick Watson!"

"Honey Woman Lady Cutie" by Alexander Fairchild
Imogen is a freak!
" We quickly realized that much like Eli, Imogen needed her own sort of music... and this tune kicked it all off. Eli is definitely interested. Though, whether she becomes his honey-woman-lady-cutie remains to be seen..."
