Stranger Things

Stranger Things has played an integral part in the resurgence of several tracks.

Along with Metallica single ‘Master Of Puppets’, Stranger Things has paved the way for Kate Bush’s track ‘Running Up That Hill’ to break all kinds of records.

Following its inclusion in the series, ‘Running Up That Hill’, reached number one in the UK charts for the first time since it was released in 1985.

So many young people who love the show are discovering the song for the first time”, Bush said in a statement.

“The response to Running Up That Hill is something that has had its own energy and volition. A direct relationship between the shows and their audience and one that has stood completely outside of the music business. We’ve all been astounded to watch the track explode!”. 

Kate Bush broke other records, including becoming the oldest female artist to release a number one in the UK, and the longest gap between UK number ones.

‘Running Up That Hill’ also broke the record for the longest time taken for a track to reach number one. More on this from Nova here.
