TeenNick's Degrassi

"Wanna Ride" by Dirty Radio
Dave and Alli make out in his car. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
"This Vancouver based group was perfect for Dave. We didn't want to simply put Dave into the hip hop genre. Instead, this is an electropop hip hop group with many influences. There are a few versions of this song but this is the original – perfect for Dave's comeback with Alli."

"Summer of '69" by Bryan Adams
Adam and Drew sing along to Dave's radio in his car.
"Our script called for some recognizable piece of music that the boys could enthusiastically belt out in Dave's car. With the help of our friends at Universal Music Publishing Canada, we dove into a huge list of possibilities, but we chose Bryan Adams for the simple reason that he and this song are iconic Canadian symbols that we wanted to showcase to a younger generation of Canadians."
