Stranger Things took Kate BushThe music’s to new (wuthering) heights.
Creators Matt and Ross Duffer appeared on his 1985 song “Running Up That Hill” on Stranger Things 4: Volume I, which sent the single to the top of the US and UK charts. And now, Bush thanked the brothers, not only for the renewed attention, but for the emphasis on importance of mental health.
“In this latest series the characters face many of the same challenges that are in reality today,” he wrote in his blog June 20. “I believe the Duffer Brothers touched people’s hearts in a special way, at a time that was extremely difficult for everyone, especially young people. “
Bush continues, “By showing‘ Running Up That Hill ’in a positive light — as an amulet for Max [Sadie Sink] (one of the main female characters) – the song is taken into the emotional arena of her story. Fear, conflict and the power of love are all around him and his friends. “
