Kate Bush’s 1985 hit “Running Up That Hill” has surged to the top of the UK Songs billboard, surpassing Harry Styles’ “As It Was” and reaching No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100. This unexpected resurgence, nearly four decades after its original release, positions Bush as the youngest and oldest woman with a self-written song at No. 1 on the UK charts. The song’s newfound popularity is attributed to its prominent use in Netflix’s “Stranger Things” Season 4, where it plays a pivotal role in a memorable scene. Bush expresses her excitement and welcomes a new generation of fans, acknowledging the impact of the show on her classic song. The singer-songwriter emphasizes the unique connection with younger audiences discovering her music for the first time. The iconic track has also gained traction on platforms like TikTok and received praise from artists like Halsey and Kim Petras. Despite not regularly listening to her own songs, Bush appreciates the positive response and recognizes the special place the song holds in “Stranger Things.”
