"Stranger Things (Soundtrack from the Netflix Original Series)" by Various Artists on iTunes

30 Songs

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.

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

ToCexe,

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.

Good Buy

*jymee_dakis*,

It's a really solid soundtrack for one of the best shows out. Whoever curates the music is a genius. 80s music can be pretty cheesy sometimes but this is a good mix, and for me to not be old enough to truly appreciate the nostalgia I give it a solid 4/5. I own the physical copy I picked up at Target and it's in my car CD right now. Good stuff and released at the perfect time of year.
