After the success of the Stranger Things song, Kate Bush writes a heartfelt thank you letter to the Duffer Brothers

Stranger Things 4: Volume I featured her 1985 song “Running Up That Hill,” which shot to the top of the charts in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Now, not only is Bush thanking the brothers for their fresh focus but also for emphasizing the significance of mental health.

“Many of the same difficulties that exist in reality right now are faced by the characters in this latest series,” she wrote on her blog on June 20. “I feel the Duffer Brothers have touched people’s emotions in a unique way, at a time when everyone, especially young people, is going through a difficult moment.”

Bush went on to say, “The song has been brought into the emotional arena of her story by showcasing it in such a good light—as a talisman for Max [Sadie Sink] (one of the main female characters). Her and her friends are surrounded by fear, strife, and the power of love. “

Kate went on to praise the brothers for having the “courage” to take the Netflix series to a “far more adult and darker place.”

“I’m blown away by the outpouring of love and support for the song, and it’s all occurring at breakneck speed, as if propelled by some unseen power. I must admit that I am deeply moved by it all, “she pondered. “Thank you so much for unexpectedly making the song No. 1,” says the artist.

Bush’s album Hounds of Love included the lead hit “Running Up That Hill.” It reached No. 3 on the UK Singles Chart and No. 30 on Billboard’s Hot 100 in the 1980s.

According to Billboard, it’s now at the top of the UK Songs Chart, with Bush setting a record for the longest interval between No. 1 singles. Her last No. 1 hit was “Wuthering Heights” in 1978, so it’s been 44 years since she’s topped the charts.

While the Duffer brothers eventually agreed to use Bush’s song, Nora Felder, the show’s music supervisor, deserves credit for proposing it.

Felder, a longtime Bush fan, felt the song would be a wonderful fit: “It immediately hit me with its deep chords of the possible connection to Max’s inner issues and took on additional meaning as Bush’s song marinated in my conscious awareness,” she told Variety.

“On a broader level, I am also grateful for all of the great responses to the music, which, of course, owes a major thanks to the Duffer brothers and the tremendous work they have done with season four,” Felder said in a separate interview with Billboard.
