With a 1985 song featured in ‘Stranger Things,’ Kate Bush continues to break records

Kate Bush, a British singer and songwriter, topped the UK singles chart on Friday with her 1985 hit “Running Up That Hill,” breaking multiple records with the song, which has been resurrected owing to Netflix’s “Stranger Things.”

In the latest season of the 1980s-set programme about supernatural horrors in the fictional Indiana town of Hawkins, the song “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” has acquired a new fan base among a younger age.

Bush, who rose to fame in 1978 with debut single “Wuthering Heights” in which the then 19-year-old won fans with her unique voice and expressive dance moves, made a rare public comment about the song’s renewed popularity and that she was a fan of the sci-fi drama created by brothers Matt and Ross Duffer.

Bush set three all-time Official Chart records on Friday, according to the Official Charts Company: longest time for a single to reach No. 1 on the Official Singles Chart – 37 years – and oldest female artist to score a No. 1 on the Official Singles Chart.

The way a new generation of music fans have taken her classic track to their hearts really solidifies Kate’s position as an all-time great, if that were ever necessary,” said Official Charts Company Chief Executive Martin Talbot in a statement.

It’s not the first time a classic hit has been re-released as a result of renewed interest from a recent pop culture moment. After a TikTok video of a man drinking cranberry juice and longboarding while listening to Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 song “Dreams” went viral in 2020, the band rocketed to No. 3 on the Billboard charts.
