Music: Stranger Things Soundtrack Vol 1 & 2

strangerthingssoundtrackHave you watched Stranger Things yet?  Well, get a Netflix subscription!  A few weeks ago, our Retrenders colleague Johnny Moreno binge watched Stranger Things and wrote a review on it (Stranger Things review).  He then called me in the middle of the night to tell me to watch it!  So I did and it was well worth it.  Like many 80s kids, I had fond memories of movies and music from that era.  And one of the many important factors in the success of Stranger Things is the music made by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein.  They have just released 2 new tracks to preview for the upcoming Vol 1 and Vol 2 releases digitally and CD format.

STRANGER THINGS – A Throwback to the Best Movies of the ’80s!

Stranger Things - Netflix - RetrendersIf you haven’t seen this Netflix Series, you should!  Because I went into a sleepless night binge watching this!

Stranger Things takes place in the ’80s and with plenty of ’80s music.  It brought back so many memories of past films, this took me back to being a 5 year-old kid, because it had a little bit of The Goonies, a team of kids on bicycles. I also couldn’t help recognize the use of same dramatic theme track too.  Then there’s E.T., because of the weird girl; The Explorers, kids exploring; Stand By Me, the train track trail to find their friend; and it even had an X-Files Sci-Fi conspiracy twist that will lure you to want to watch the series until the end. Also, it’s worth mentioning, if you love Dungeons and Dragons, you’ll appreciate this series!
