Kate Bush has been popular with music fans for decades, but she has suddenly reached a new audience thanks to the latest series of Stranger Things.

Season four of the hit Netflix sci-fi horror broke the streaming giant’s record for the biggest-ever premiere weekend for an English-language series.

Bush’s 1985 track Running Up That Hill features in the season’s first episode.

As a result, the track has gone viral on social media and is now top of Spotify’s daily songs chart in the UK.

After being widely shared by fans on TikTok and Twitter, Running Up That Hill replaced Harry Styles at number one in streaming service’s ranking.

It also became Spotify’s fourth-most streamed song worldwide, and topped the Apple iTunes chart.

Running Up That Hill, taken from Bush’s album Hounds of Love, had previously peaked at number three in the UK, but thanks to Stranger Things it is currently the singer’s most streamed track.

In 2012, Running Up That Hill re-entered the top 10 of the official UK singles chart, after featuring in the closing ceremony of the London Olympics, and it could do so again this coming Friday.

The Killers pause Old Trafford gig to check crowd-surfing pensioner is okay

Published

on

The 67-year-old was enjoying the gig with his son and daughter-in-law when he decided to get in on the action.

Half way through the set, singer Brandon Flowers expressed his concern after seeing an elderly man fall into the 60,000-strong crowd while being crowd-surfed to the front.

When the pensioner – later identified as sixty-seven-year-old Doug James from Sale – was pulled from the crowd with a bleeding head, Flowers asked the audience whether he should be crowd-surfing at his age, before jumping down from the stage to greet him himself.

Social media footage shows Flowers warmly embracing Doug, who seemed overjoyed with the situation and completely unfazed by the cut on his head.

Once back on stage, the American singer adopted his own Mancunian accent and recalled: “I said Billy what ya doin’? He told me ‘I’m enjoyin’ me self!’”.

Doug, who was at the gig with his son and daughter-in-law, later told ITV News of his encounter: “There are so many nice and fun people at concerts, I got chatting to them and thought it [crowd-surfing] would be a good idea.”

He explained that he was inspired after seeing a lady in a wheelchair be lifted into the air, noting how he thought it was a ‘lovely idea’.

He said to the people around him: “I’d like to have a go at that and I said to the lad beside me if you crowd surf then I will, he decided not to, but I said lift me up and send me forward.”

Doug said that he didn’t realise he was on the big screen at the time and, when asked by Flowers what he was doing, had simply replied: “I’m enjoying myself!”
