Netflix Will Release an Official Stranger Things Soundtrack
In the meantime, there's also Spotify.
If, like me, you watched Netflix’s new show Stranger Things and were immediately transported back to the age of the 80s (and all the classic horror films that it so lovingly referenced), a large part of that probably had to do with the music that featured over the course of those addicting eight episodes.
The show managed to bring in classic jams, from The Clash’s “Should I Stay Or Should I Go” (which takes on an entirely different tone now) to Toto’s “Africa” and Corey Hart’s “Sunglasses At Night”–that, plus the amazing 80s fashions and queen of the era herself Winona Ryder starring, left all who watched in a state of nostalgia and excitement.
While the streaming service has already made the soundtrack available to listen to via Spotify (I’ve had it on repeat for several days now), it also confirmed that an official soundtrack (which will likely feature the show’s synth-heavy score as well as its awesome opening titles, all composed by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein) is on the way:

While we count down the days until the soundtrack gets released (and pig out on our stash of chocolate pudding), if you’re interested in learning more about the guys who scored Stranger Things, this Noisey interview is a great place to start.
