news culture Stranger Things Season 4: A hit from the 80s becomes number 1 on iTunes thanks to the Netflix series
Season 4 of Stranger Things is here, and is already breaking records, but that’s not all! The series also revived a cult song by Kate Bush, dating from the 80s.
After 3 years of waiting, finally season 4
Because of the Covid-19, the fourth part of Netflix’s flagship series, Stranger Things, was slow to show the end of its nose. Released last Friday on the streaming platform, this new season is divided into two volumes. The first is made up of 7 episodes already available, while the second only has 2, scheduled for July 1st. To compensate, these last two episodes will respectively be 1h25 and 2h30. The story takes place 6 months after the events of season 3, and features our heroes separated for the first time after the Byers family moves to California. Despite this situation, our unluckiest group of teenagers in history must once again face supernatural forces.
The 80s – Number 1 on iTunes
After having accumulated 287 million hours of viewing in just three days, Season 4 of Stranger Things also brought Kate Bush back into the limelight. His single Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) is currently the most streamed track on iTunes. The song is used in some of the most significant passages of this first part of the season, illustrating the development of the character of Max (Sadie Sink). Shortly after the release of the new episodes, YouTube revealed that the search rate for this tube has exceeded 800%, which is huge in such a short period of time. This isn’t the first time Stranger Things has revived a song. Season 3 had the same effect with Limahl’s famous song, The NeverEnding Story.
The first part of season 4 of Stranger Things is currently available on Netflix. The second volume will be released on July 1 on the SVOD platform.
