iiiiiiiiiiiiiii aaaaaaaammmmmmmmmm soooooooooooooooooo happy that stranger things decided to use “running up that hill” by kate bush this season. not only because it’s one of my favorite 80s songs EVARRRR, but bc it finally cancelled out and replaced the bohemian rhapsody of the clash (should i stay or should i go). i also love that they’ve now introduced that song to a new generation of people/kids.
the stranger things scores and soundtracks are so fucking good. like, goosebumps good. it reminds me of the end of “san junipero” (black mirror). the guy who wrote the episode specifically nailed down “heaven is a place on earth” for the ending of that episode. he said he would have been “distraught” if he couldn’t have used it for the end scene. i love how like that, stranger things tie such specific songs to things to evoke emotions with music (time after time at the dance… BE STILL MY HEART), and don’t even get me started on san junipero. i cried the ugliest happy tears the first time i watched it.
i won’t spoil stranger things 4, but the scene where running up that hill is featured, my lawd… my heart. like, that song always chokes me up to begin with (and “this woman’s work” – i can’t get through that song without a tear falling) – but attaching a specific character to “running up that hill” at a specific and very important scene… WHO IS CUTTING ONIONS?!
anyways, if you haven’t already watched it, GO FREAKIN WATCH IT!!!
i can’t wait until the next two episodes are released – i want to watch the entire series in order, straight through. i actually might just do it anyway, because the timing might just line up.
i want to relive the entire show like i’ve never seen it before.

if you’ve never heard the song i’m referencing in this post, please ENJOY:
P.S.: i also added this ST4 phone/watch wallpaper yesterday!
