The formula launched in 1985 reached number one last Friday after gaining prominence in the sci-fi drama series Stranger Things, from streaming service Netflix.

“It’s extraordinary. (…) It’s a big series. I thought the track would get some attention, but I never imagined it would be something like this,” said Kate Bush, in an interview with BBC Radio 4.

“It’s so exciting. But it’s really shocking, isn’t it? I mean, the whole world has gone crazy.”

“Running Up That Hill” originally peaked on the numbers train in 1985, but rose again 37 years later when a new generation discovered it through a Netflix production.

In a rare interview, the 63-year-old also stressed that it’s “cool” that her music has “reached a whole new audience”, many of whom have never even heard of it.

“The idea of ​​all these young people hearing and discovering music for the first time (…) is very special,” he added.

“Running Up That Hill” also ranked #1 in countries like Australia, Belgium and Sweden, and #4 in the US, debuting on Billboard magazine’s top five list.
