Doesn’t Matter by The Deadly Syndrome
A beautiful song, it was used in the context as a piece of score and a great one at that. The drums kick in over the kiss, which looks like the kiss of a lifetime, and it’s raw power just drives the scene forward into a form of awkward, sweet serenity. In the mix we kept raising the volume, pass after pass, to drive that kiss deeper into the viewers’ minds.
Just Another Kiss by Bodhi Jones
Bodhi was the singer on this track when it was just a demo. In the Degrassi world, he’s the official artist on the song, and his sweet tones do it justice in The Dot. It played kind of funny against Dave’s attitude.
Waiting To Fall by Andrew Creelman
This is a lyrical song, meaning it’s placement relies on the lyrics fitting the scene. Even though it’s tucked in the background, it definitely replicates what’s going on. We know Fiona is still drinking. We know it has to do with Adam. We’re all waiting for these two to fall, for Fiona to get another kink in her armour. Ideas for this placement swirled around romantic R&B to plain silence, but the lyrics in Waiting To Fall won the day.
I Wish You Love by Sunflow
A really cute, lovely love song which played over the “Lovers’ Lunch”. With all the heartbreak and drama already this season we were beginning to wonder if this sweet love song would fit anywhere! Low and behold, you can’t take the love out of Degrassi and Lovers’ Lunch was the perfect spot.
She Hott by Jinaz
Check out the flute in this song. Remind you of anything? The Three Tenners perhaps?? The flute and the R&B felt so good we could have sworn it was ripped from “Frag You” or even a Three Tenners original. The song just matched Dave, period. We love the instrumentation and the lay-up in the scene felt just great.
Peacock Dance by The Smooth Maria
This is an epic track. Epic. We like to call this the “loose ends montage song”, but that doesn’t do it enough justice. The song marches along, steady, calmly, driving the emotion behind Adam reading Fiona’s letter, it pounds like a heartbeat and you can feel how excited and terrified he is to be reading it. The beautiful shots of Dave and Sadie, Anya waiting at the restaurant, Fiona accepting her faults, culminating in a bright, innocent, youthful smile from Adam makes for yet another memorable Degrassi moment and song.Tweet
