I've never really watched Stranger Things. Not my ... thing. But I've been listenning to this track as old as me for many many years because it is universal. It speaks of the longing for your other half. And this song is cool because Kate Bush is. And that's it.
It's actually charting better in 2022 than in 1985. Not a reflection of the song. Back in 85, Kate Bush was being overshadowed here in the US with Madonna, Tears for Fears, and the Miami Vice Soundtrack. Otherwise, it would have charted much higher on the weekly Top 40.
I've heard of Kate Bush before, but only knowing her song Babooshka. I enjoyed listening to that song, and then later ST introduced me to another one of her amazing songs. I know a lot of people are only acknowledging her now because of that scene. But I'd like to say ST didn't make me like this song, it was Kate Bush's voice. I hope her music travels further than just ST fans themselves.
