Stranger Things brings popular songs from the 80s back to life
Netflix recently released Season 4 of Stranger Things in its catalog. If it is described as “the best season in the history of the series” by many fans, it’s because the Duffer Brothers have exceeded the limits of the possible. With a budget of $30 million per episode, the creators were able to develop the plots of this sequel as they pleased. Naturally, in addition to the excellent stories and the acting of the performers of the heroes of Stranger Thingsthe sci-fi series has been keeping viewers spellbound since 2016 too thanks to the music and songs that punctuate the episodes.
You are certainly aware that the series has brought up to date a title by Kate Bush, Running Up That Hill, 37 years after its release. Released in 1985, the track was used as a “talisman” by Max who listened to it tirelessly to escape the clutches of Vecna. If at the end of episode 8, the heroine unfortunately could not listen to her to avoid being caught in the nets of the creature from the Upside Down, Kate Bush can be eternally grateful to the series . And for good reason, in addition to becoming the most listened to song on Spotify in one month, Running Up That Hill allowed the singer to pick up three world records according to the Guinness Book of World Recordsbut also to pocket over $2.3 million in streaming rights since the release of Stranger Things.
