Stranger Things 4 propels Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’ music video to over 100 million views
Despite being released nearly 40 years ago, Kate Bush’s hit song “Running Up That Hill” continues to be one of the biggest songs in the world. The song was widely featured in stranger things 4 on Netflix, acting as the song to help keep Max out of Vecna’s clutches. The events of stranger things kept Bush’s popular song near the top of the charts for weeks, in addition to increasing views of the music video on YouTube.
This weekend, the official music video for “Running Up That Hill” surpassed 100 million views on YouTube. This number will only continue to climb in the weeks to come, as the hype for stranger things keep rolling.
stranger things 4 delivered the biggest opening of any English-language series in Netflix history after its May 27 debut, so it’s no surprise that “Running Up That Hill” has stuck in the minds of so many viewers. The song remains the season’s standout, as Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” and Journey’s “Separate Ways” didn’t enjoy the same peak of success.
After waiting three years to see stranger things 4fans are already starting to wonder when the fifth and final installment in the series might arrive.
“It depends on who you ask,” said co-creator Matt Duffer Collider when asked for a release date. “That’s what we’re still figuring out. If you ask our AD and executive producer, they want more time for production. Our post-production supervisor wants more time for post-production So it’s going to be a big discussion. How long does everyone have? Here’s the thing, the more you shorten production, the more you shorten post-production, the more things get compromised.
“It’s just the balance of, ‘Okay, how much are we willing to compromise to get the show out sooner? Is it more important to give everyone the time they need to get it right, without being lenient?’ I’m sure we’ll find out what that line is, but all I have to say is I’ve never been very worried,” he added.
