SPOILER WARNING: If you haven't seen the new episode yet, go watch it before you read this post!

TeenNick's Degrassi

"Astronaut" by Robyn Dell'Unto
Clare and Jake almost have sex. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
"Robyn's music is dreamy and elusive, and was perfect for this scene. We had no idea where the scene was heading, and we felt the nervous tension. Cutting through it with Robyn's song was like wrapping the scene in a warm duvet blanket. It felt awkward, but still comfortable."

"Because I'm Awesome" by The Dollyrots
Tori and Maya fight in class.
"This song had been on our radar for a while (in fact, we placed it before, in Season 10). This wasn't a serious fight scene -- we wanted to create a bit of a ridiculous atmosphere. We decided to use the song again, because, well, it's awesome."
