Poker Face by Lady Gaga
Alli wins big at the Degrassi poker tournament.
When this episode was written 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 classmates blind.
All Eyes by Imagine Dragons
Alli buys Dave’s love.
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.
1-2-3-4 by Kilolla
Alli is planning something big…and lying to Dave.
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 it’s way into Alli world, where yes, she lied and cheated her way to the top.Tweet
