Kate Bush Returns to the Charts with Song Stranger Things E! News UK


Kate Bush has made a comeback on the charts after her iconic song ‘Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)’ was featured in the new series of ‘Stranger Things’.

The pop legend’s track was included in the first episode of season four of the hit Netflix show and it has climbed to No. 1 on the iTunes chart in the US since new shows landed on the service streaming May 27.

“Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” is from Kate’s “Hounds of Love” album and reached number three on the UK Singles Chart after its release in 1985.

Kate has previously opened up about the meaning of the lyrics, saying in 1985: “It’s about a relationship between a man and a woman. They love each other very much, and the power of the relationship is something that gets in the way. .

“It creates insecurities. That is to say if the man could be the woman and the woman the man, if they could make a deal with God, change places, that they would understand what it is to ‘be the other person and maybe that would clear up any misunderstandings. You know, all the little problems, there wouldn’t be a problem.

It’s not the first time “Stranger Things” has given a major song boost – series three featured the theme from the 1984 fantasy film “The NeverEnding Story.”

The music video for Limahl’s song has become a huge hit on YouTube, with bosses revealing searches rose 800% after the episode dropped on Netflix.
