In context: (Warning: some Stranger Things season 4 spoilers ahead) If you’re one of the many who contributed to Stranger Things season 4’s record viewing figures – 781.04 million hours watched over the course of its first two and a half weeks – you might have wondered what the song would be that could save you from Vecna. Spotify answered that question with a custom playlist of music so powerful it could stop the evil antagonist from upside down.
The first half of Season 4 of Stranger Things sent Kate Bush’s 1985 track Running Up That Hill to the charts (at No. 1 in the UK) thanks to its use as the song that saves Max from a brutal death in the hands of Vena.
With Stranger Things Season 4 Part 2 arriving tomorrow, Spotify has launched The Upside Down Playlist, which might help you find your own savior song. The list includes some favorite (i.e. most-played) songs mixed in with some Stranger Things classics.
Once the second part of season 4 arrives, Netflix will update its official Stranger Things playlist with all the new songs from the series. That means we’ll find out which song Eddie Munson rips in the trailer, with The Final Countdown, Sweet Child O’ Mine and Master of Puppets the main theories.
I don’t know what the most embarrassing admission on this list is
In other news, you may have seen Spotify Icebergs popping up on social media lately. This is a version of Hemingway’s Iceberg Theory that shows the depth of a subject, with the lesser-known information at the bottom and the more visible parts above the water. In this case, the popular bands you listen to will be on top while the obscure artists will be on the bottom. You can try it on icebergify.
