Why is Stranger Things responsible for Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill going viral?

Although Kate Bush has always been popular with her own devoted and sizeable cult following, it’s perhaps been a while since she’s permeated the mainstream bubble in the way she did at numerous points in the 70s and 80s. That is, until now, thanks to a drop of her whimsical 1985 hit Running Up That Hill (lifted from Hounds Of Love) in the latest season of horror pop-culture phenomenon Stranger Things.

Following the debut of series four on Netflix last Friday (May 27), the song, which plays an important role in part of the show’s plot in episode four, has found fresh popularity with a new generation of fans who are now discovering Kate Bush for the very first time.
