Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’ Tops Charts After ‘Stranger Things’ Appearance

**Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’ Takes Top Spot on Charts Following ‘Stranger Things’ Appearance**

Last Friday marked the debut of the first segment of the fourth season of the popular supernatural series on Netflix, “Stranger Things.” The initial responses to these new episodes have been quite favorable, with many appreciating the cinematography and the performances of the talented young cast. Among the feedback, the general consensus is that the fourth episode stands out, particularly due to a climactic scene featuring Kate Bush’s timeless 1985 track, “Running Up That Hill.”

To avoid spoilers, it’s recommended to witness the scene firsthand if you haven’t already. The song was skillfully employed to heighten the intensity of a crucial life-or-death moment involving one of the young cast members, Sadie Sink as Max, and the primary antagonist of the season, leading to a gripping and emotional climax. Following the release of these new episodes, streams of “Running Up That Hill” surged on popular music platforms like Spotify and iTunes, propelling the song to the top of the charts in both the US and UK.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, the show’s music supervisor, Nora Felder, shared her rationale for choosing the iconic tune, emphasizing the need for a track that was both dramatic and poignant while also resonating with a teenager’s sensibilities in the 80s.

Felder explained, “The song really needed to resonate with Max’s experience and amplify her need for strength and support at that time. The more the song marinated in my conscious awareness, I realized this was something that could be special.”

For the most part, fans of Kate Bush welcomed the resurgence of the song, with many expressing joy at its renewed popularity. Some humorously pointed out that Bush herself might be taken by surprise to find herself in the spotlight once again.
