Get ready to kill off Barb with Vintown and Sammerz as they talk about two of the biggest songs from Netflix’s Stranger Things: “Running Up That Hill” by Kate Bush and “Should I Stay or Should I Go?” by The Clash.
The show starts with talk about “Running Up That Hill” which has become the biggest hit in Kate Bush’s career over the past week. (And they say Gen Z can’t do anything right.) We talk God, interpretive dance, Big Boi from Outkast, and the song’s incredible rise over the past two weeks.
We then delve into the YouTube comments where people really want you to know they heard this on Stranger Things. Hey, did I mention this song is on the new season of Stranger Things? Because it is. It’s on the new season of Stranger Things. However, some have been fans long before the show (Stranger Things) and they really want you to know that too.
The Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go?” appeared on season one of Stranger Things so we talk about that next. We talk about the show’s writing, it’s Spanish background singing, Levi’s, One Direction, Rugrats, and this new show called Stranger Things. Have you heard of it? It’s really good.
The show closes out with a delve into the YouTube comments of The Clash’s hit where people are really frickin’ bent that you discovered this song from a show instead of the old fashioned way: being born a long time ago. These commenters gots to go, y’all.
A fun episode about a crazy new show on Netflix. Listen between your next binge session of Stranger Things.
