Two icons celebrating each other’s victories is what the world truly needs. Recently, people all around the world rediscovered Kate Bush’s iconic ‘Running Up That Hill’ as they saw Max and her friends fight off Vecna in the fourth season of Stranger Things. Needless to say, the 1985 hit single blew up on social media, especially on Tik-Tok and Instagram.

As fans created reels of their perfect playlist that would protect them against Vecna, ‘Running Up That Hill’ soared through the charts, taking the number one spot.

Hitting the number one spot after 37 years since its release, Kate Bush broke many records, including Cher’s long-time record. The ‘Hounds Of Love’ singer became the oldest female artist to hit No.1 on the U.K. Singles Chart at the age of 63 years and 11 months, moving past Cher, who was 52 when her iconic single ‘Believe’ hit the charts in 1998. A true legend, the ‘After All’ singer took to Twitter to congratulate Bush, saying that “records are meant to be broken...We had to fight our way through the testosterone curtain, and we did it so the girls who came after us could sing as long as they want to,” Cher tweeted.

Bush recently thanked the creators of Stranger Things, the Duffer Brothers by sharing a note on her website saying, “I want to thank them so much for bringing the song into so many people’s lives. I’m overwhelmed by the scale of affection and support the song is receiving and it’s all happening really fast, as if it’s being driven along by a kind of elemental force.”

So, in case you haven’t heard it, the weekend’s near, and we suggest creating a Cher and Kate Bush playlist.
