'Stranger Things' has become famous in small part due to using big 80's pop hits on the soundtrack, and the usage of Kate Bush's track 'Running Up That Hill' has given the song a new lease of life.

The track debuted at number 10 on the Irish singles charts this week after being featured in the hit Netflix drama.

Sales and streams of the song have exploded worldwide, with the track hitting number 2 in Australia, and has hit number 8 in the UK and United States.

The track hit number 3 back in 1985 in the UK, and went to number 6 in 2012 after being featured in the closing ceremony for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Taken from Bush's album 'The Hounds Of Love', the track hit number 4 back in 1985 but a new generation of fans have discovered the song, to the delight of Bush.

Bush is famously very strict about approving her music to be used in television and film, but allowed the song to be used as she is "a big fan of the show."

The show's music supervisor Nora Fielder fought for the song to be included in the show, and said "I believe that if it was written and recorded today, it would fit right in and not be considered a 'dated' sound in any way."

Bush isn't the first artist to have an old classic track of theirs hit the pop charts, with Nirvana's haunting 'Something In The Way' hitting the pop charts in March after being featured in 'The Batman'.

'Stranger Things' has smashed viewing records for Netflix, setting a record for the most-viewed English langauge Netflix show in its opening weekend.

The remaining episodes will debut on July 1st, which should give 'Stranger Things' fans plenty of time to memorise Bush's entire back catalogue between now and then.
