The sample

"Leave It All to Me" is the theme song to the Nickelodeon show iCarly. It is also the debut single of Miranda Cosgrove and features her former Drake & Josh co-star, Drake Bell. It was written by Michael Corcoran, one of Bell's band members.[3] A shortened version is used in the show's opening credits, but the full version can be found on the show's soundtrack. This is the second theme song of a Television show to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 in the decade.[citation needed] It very narrowly charted by the lowest possible spot at 100.

Music video[edit]

The official music video premiered after an episode of iCarly on May 24, 2008. The first shot shows a laptop with iCarly.com on it. Miranda Cosgrove (Carly), Jennette McCurdy (Sam), Nathan Kress (Freddie), Jerry Trainor (Spencer) and Drake Bell are seen dancing and singing in the played videos on the laptop. Kids are seen dancing in the videos sent in by them, which are also not on iCarly.com. At the end of the video, they zoom out of the laptop. It was directed by Dan Schneider.[citation needed]

The video premiered on TRL on June 11, 2008.[citation needed]

In translation[edit]

"Leave It All to Me" is the intro music of versions of iCarly that are dubbed into other languages for other markets -- but sung by different people with slightly modified lyrics in the target language. The song has a few subtle political overtones that are not always translated into the new target languages.
