Yet again, the generous Degrassi Music Team is providing us with not just the names of the songs that were playing during your favorite scenes in the Degrassi: Now or Never premiere, but how those songs ended up there!

Keke Palmer on TeenNick's Degrassi

"The One You Call" by Keke Palmer
Keke's radio song -- the one she performs at her concert. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
" Keke was a great fit with the show. Her music sounds amazing with the picture, and when this song is performed at the concert, it reverberates in the room and looks and sounds amazing!"

"Fot I Hose" by Casiokids
From when Sav and Alli are painting their living room. Check the Degrassi page for a sample.
" This is a synthpop piece from a Norwegian band called Casiokids. We love how international Degrassi has become, and so the music has to reflect that, too. The vibe was perfect for some simple house painting -- suddenly painting your walls yellow feels like a lot of fun!"

"Whoa" by Kaleo
From the scene where Bianca shows up in style.
" The title of this song pretty much sums up its entire placement. When Bianca shows up, the proper reaction is definitely "whoa." And the genre fits with her general vibe."

"Walls Come Down" by Keke Palmer
Another song Keke performs at her concert.
" Another fantastic Keke performance, this song boomed through the audience like it was meant to be."

"Harmony to my Heartbeat" by Sally Seltmann
From Fiona and Charlie's romantic scooter ride!
" This song is so personal, and the lyrics resonate with anyone who's ever waited for their crush to like them back. It's a song about hope and longing -- and it's exactly what Fiona was feeling for Charlie. Will she like her back? Will it last? Maybe there's some foreshadowing in the song..."

"The End of Broken Hearts" by Cavaliers!
From when Fiona and Charlie finally find each other... and admit they like each other.
" The beautiful duet known as Cavaliers! had captured our hearts long ago, and this song in particular has something wonderfully captivating about it. One day, will there be the end of broken hearts, all over the world? Maybe. But certainly for Fiona, in that moment with Charlie, it's the end of her heartache."

"The Greatest" by Keke Palmer
The song Keke sings to Sav over Skype.
" This may be one of the most poignant moments in Degrassi history. Sav struggles with his newfound friend and not being able to be close to her, while Drew struggles with his newfound steel and the task ahead of him. It's an incredibly internal moment for both of them, and the song and score captures both moments perfectly."

"Dead Hearts" by Stars
The final song in the episode, when Drew is hauled away in the police cruiser.
" A selection by the director, Stefan Brogren, he felt that this song pretty much told the story in this moment better than the script could. The lyrics beam out at us, and the important thing to remember here is that one important line: "They were kids that I once knew...""
