 Kate Bush's song ranks top 10 thanks to Stranger Things

British singer Kate Bush wins music charts with the song "Running Up That Hill", which she released back in 1985 thanks to the currently popular series "Stranger Things" "Running Up That Hill" is the single that took the longest time to take first place on the charts in the UK, according to the Official Charts Company.

"The way that a new generation of music fans have taken her classic track to their hearts really does cement Kate’s position as an all-time great, if that were at all necessary," Official Charts Company Chief Executive Martin Talbot said in a statement.

At the age of 63, Bush became the oldest musician at the top of the charts. She is also a record holder because she made the longest time gap between two top singles. Her song “Wuthering Heights” was an absolute hit in the UK 44 years ago.

She was only 19 at the time. When “Running Up That Hill” was originally released, it was in third place on the charts. "It’s very touching that the song has been so warmly received, especially as it’s being driven by the young fans who love the shows," Bush, 63, said in a statement earlier this month.

"I’m really happy that the Duffer Brothers are getting such positive feedback for their latest creation. They deserve it." Bush said earlier this month. Stranger Things reviews "The latest series of Netflix's hit sci-fi Eighties horror-homage is seriously long and almost too self-aware - but it's also irresistible," wrote Chris Bennion in a four-star review in The Telegraph.

"Stranger Things is a 1980s Americana theme park, and it is all the better when it embraces that fact." Amanda Whiting wrote: "Some shows evolve over their long runs; others clutch to what made them hits in the first place.

"Stranger Things' flashy fourth season mostly does the latter, churning through Eighties pop-cultural references at a pace that makes me worry there'll be nothing in the tank for its final, fifth chapter."

In a four-star review, Alex O'Connell wrote: "If the first seasons of Stranger Things nodded to ET the Extra-Terrestrial and Stand by Me, this one (which comes in two 'volumes', with staggered releases) genuflects to A Nightmare on Elm Street."
