EDITORS’ NOTES

While Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein’s original score to Stranger Things sets the series’ eerie tone, pitch-perfect musical selections round out the retro scene-setting. New Order’s haunting synth-and-guitar epic “Elegia” recalls New Wave at its most bittersweet; The Bangles’ “Hazy Shade of Winter” neatly captures the overarching mood of suburban unease; and Toto’s “Africa” is a yacht-rock flashback whose sunny harmonies cleverly contrast with the show’s overcast mood. It’s like intercepting a radio broadcast beamed to us from deep in the ‘80s.

STRANGER THINGS ROCKS!!! I love this show so much and can't believe I have to wait a whole year for season three to come out!!😱😵!! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is I don't understand why there are little snippets of lines in here. Other than that coool!!❤️

LOVE IT!!! Made for children of the 80’s!

If you love the show and grew up in the 80’s this soundtrack is for you!!! The show not only picks the right music, it’s played at the perfect time.
