Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill has topped the iTunes chart thanks to Stranger Things.
The iconic 1985 track has witnessed a resurgence due to the Netflix series, sending it to the top of the iTunes charts.
It features prominently in season 4 volume 1 of the retro sci-fi series, playing a huge part in Max's storyline - the character played by Sadie Sink.
The song was originally entitled A Deal With God, but was changed by Bush's label out of concern it would be banned in religious countries.
Running Up That Hill joins a host of iconic songs on the Stranger Things 4 soundtrack so far, including Talking Heads' Psycho Killer, Dead or Alive's You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) and more.
