Netflix’s Stranger Things propels Kate Bush to iTunes No. 1 after almost 40 years
Netflix could be in the middle of a sticky patch thanks to recent subscriber losses, but it still knows how to make it number one. The final season of Stranger Things is playing now, and the show’s decision to use a specific Kate Bush song has seen it jump to the top of the iTunes charts 37 years after its first release.
The song, Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God), plays a major role in a specific episode of the fourth season of Netflix and continues to be heard throughout. That, it seems, was enough to push it to the top of the iTunes charts, beating Lady Gaga and Harry Styles in the process.
Netflix is recovering from a loss of 200,000 subscribers during the first quarter of 2022 and is already planning a new level of ad-based subscription in an effort to address the many cheaper streaming alternatives available. they are eating. While successful shows like Stranger Things make it an essential service for many, a show is not a business model. Even if this show is so popular that it is able to resurrect a 1985 song.
As for Stranger Things, the fourth season is now on a mid-season break and will return to end in July.
