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

" Poker Face" by Lady Gaga
Alli's Degrassi poker tournament. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
"When they wrote this episode, the idea of having this Lady Gaga song was only that, an idea. We put it out to the world and it came back approved, and everyone was on pins and needles in anticipation of the cut. Turns out it was pretty much the only song for the scene, where Alli (who, coincidentally, is probably a huge Gaga fan) robs her competitors blind."

"Nothing Man" by Kilolla
Alli buys Dave's love. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
"We kept this song around for a special spot; it's lyrics and driving beat were a perfect Degrassi vibe. The special spot turned out to be Alli doing some questionable dealings... with all eyes on her, of course."

"All Eyes" by Imagine Dragons
Alli is planning something big... and lying to Dave. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
"Lyrics and melody, the beautiful combination of the two, landed this song in this scene. We originally thought it'd be perfect for Anya's storyline, but there was never a spot for it, so it tumbled its way into Alli's world, where yes, she lied and cheated her way to the top."
