Season 4 of ‘Stranger Things’ was released on Netflix recently, and it has already surpassed the first week’s viewership records. The new season of ‘Stranger Things’ is more darker than prior seasons, making it a frightening and spine-chilling experience to watch.
We witnessed how Max (Sadie Sink) was constantly tormented by Vecna in the fourth episode of Season 4, titled ‘Dear Billy.’ Max was later revealed to be the monster’s next prey. It’s difficult for Max to find a route back into the real world once Vecna flips reality for her and sends her to the strange region of the Upside Down. Nancy (Natalia Dyer) and Robin (Maya Hawke) appear out of nowhere to save Max and inform Dustin that listening to music will help her reintegrate into society. Max’s favorite song is Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill.’
Max has a decent possibility of coming outside the Upside Down as soon as she hears the song playing. She manages to get away from Vecna and return to the real world. The music plays in the background during this sequence in the show, and Max successfully returns to her circle of pals.
After this episode, the song ‘Running Up That Hill,’ which was released in 1985, went viral and reached number one on iTunes. Because of its presence on the Netflix drama series, the 63-year-old veteran singer’s song set three big all-time records on Friday. According to the Official Charts Company, it has broken the record for the longest time for a single to reach No. 1. Bush also holds the record for being the oldest female musician to reach the top of the charts. The singer currently holds the record for the longest interval between two No. 1 singles: her song “Wuthering Heights” was a UK smash 44 years ago, when she was 19 years old.
When it was first released Running Up That Hill was at third place on the global music charts
Following the song’s unexpected popularity, Bush issued a statement earlier this month thanking Netflix and fans for their unwavering love and support for the classic song. It was’really thrilling’ for her to see her music back on the charts and trending throughout the world, she said.
“You may have heard that Netflix recently launched the first season of the wonderful, compelling new series ‘Stranger Things.’ It includes the song ‘Running Up That Hill,’ which has been given a new lease on life by the show’s youthful followers – I adore it! As a result, Running Up That Hill is charting all around the world, including at No. 8 in the UK. It’s all quite thrilling! “Thank you so much to everyone who has supported the song,” Kate Bush said on her official website in a statement.
It’ll be fascinating to see if Bush’s popular song appears in the next two episodes of Season 4 of ‘Stranger Things.’ Kate, like other die-hard fans, will be eagerly anticipating the last two episodes. “I wait with bated breath for the rest of the series in July,” she added. Kate, best wishes.”
