"Leave It All to Me" is the debut single by American actress and singer Miranda Cosgrove and the theme song for Cosgrove's Nickelodeon show iCarly. It features Cosgrove's former Drake & Josh co-star, Drake Bell, and 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. The single charted in the U.S. on the Billboard Hot 100, at position 100. It was the shows theme song for the whole entire series.

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, the creator of iCarly.[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.
