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

"Rich Doors" by NewVillager
Eli watches Clare from a distance. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
"This song took a little bit of extra listening to hear its TV placement potential. It travels around at the right speed, its heavy piano chords pierce at just the right moment. It sounds like Eli's heartbeat -- he's watching her like she used to watch him."

Imogen convinces Eli that Clare never loved him. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
"Let alone the title of the song being fit for the scene, it was the electricity of the song that perfect for the moment. A little bit of witchcraft and uncertainty -- Imogen is casting her spell over Eli... he has no power!!"

"Hold Me In Your Arms" by Zerbin
Riley breaks up with Zane.
"Here the song title is ironic -- it's actually a very sad moment for everyone who was rooting for Zane and Riley. Beginning with the gorgeous moon married to the beautiful violin, a dark evening mood set the tone for the end of one of the most arduous and tested relationships in Degrassi history..."

Eli dumps his pills in the trash.
