Kate Bush: Following Her Return to the Top of the Charts, Kate Bush Declared That the “World Has Gone Insane.”!
The unexpected popularity with a new audience that the singer Kate Bush has experienced since her recent chart triumph thanks to Stranger Things has been described by Bush as “really amazing.”
After receiving significant exposure in the science fiction drama series on Netflix, Running Up That Hill climbed to the top of the charts on Friday.
She said this on Wednesday’s episode of Woman’s Hour on BBC Radio 4 by saying, “It’s really extraordinary.”
“It’s such a great series. I thought that the track would get some attention. But I just never imagined that it would be anything like this.”
She continued: “It’s so exciting. But it’s quite shocking really, isn’t it? I mean, the whole world’s gone mad.”
In 1985, the song peaked at position three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, but it wasn’t until 2017 that a new audience became familiar with it thanks to the television show Stranger Things.
The song is included in several episodes of the fourth series, and it plays an important role in the characterization of the character Max Mayfield, which is portrayed by Sadie Sink.
In an extremely uncommon interview, the singer, who is 63 years old, said to host Emma Barnett that she thought it was “great” that her music had “gone to a whole new audience,” many of whom had not been familiar with her in the past.
“The thought of all these really young people hearing the song for the first time and discovering it is, well, I think it’s very special,” she said.
When asked if it was necessary for the song to support a female character, Bush, who has been a fan of the programme ever since it first aired, responded: “Yes.” “I believe that they have kept it in a really significant location.
“The series was produced by the Duffer brothers, and as a matter of fact, my family and I watched it from the very first season onward, so I was already familiar with the show. And I thought, what a nice manner the music might be used in such a constructive way; it is a wonderful way to put it to use.
“You might say that it serves as a talisman of sorts for Max. In addition, I do believe that it is rather heartfelt in nature.”
Running Up That Hill has just reached number one in a number of countries, including Australia, Belgium, and Sweden. It has also reached number four in the United States, marking the artist’s very first entry in the top five of the Billboard chart.
Christian Bale Reveals ‘Thor: Love And Thunder’ Didn’t Include a Scene With Kate Bush’s Music
The music of British singer Kate Bush was almost used in the MCU.
Christian Bale, who plays Gorr the God Butcher in Thor: Love and Thunder, told Total Film that director Taika Waititi had planned a dance scene inspired by Kate Bush’s music, but it was cut.
“Taika and I wanted to do a whole dance, but we didn’t get to,” said Bale. “But we worked on all this Kate Bush stuff.” He goes on to say, “I think he just realised that he couldn’t put that in the final movie.” I would say that the Aphex Twin video of “Come to Daddy” was the thing I looked at most often while preparing for the role. But I have no idea if that will even be in the final movie.”
Following its appearance in the fourth season of Netflix’s Stranger Things, the song “Running Up That Hill” from her “Hounds of Love” album saw a comeback and topped the UK charts.
Bush praised the creators of the Stranger Things television series, Matt and Ross Duffer, for utilising the song and giving it new life among Generation Z on her personal blog.
“I salute the Duffer Brothers for their courage – taking this new series into a much more adult and darker place. I want to thank them so much for bringing the song into so many people’s lives,” the singer said.
“By featuring Running Up That Hill in such a positive light – as a talisman for Max (one of the main female characters played by actress Sadie Sink) – the song has been brought into the emotional arena of her story. Fear, conflict and the power of love are all around her and her friends.”
