Stranger Things Season 4 Soundtrack: Every Song You Heard in Volume 1

Bringing back the nostalgia of the ’80s.

The main reason for the huge success of Stranger Things should be credited to the soundtracks that the show uses throughout its episodes. And no, we are not referring to just the synth-driven original score of the show by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein.

Stranger Things is popular for using the nostalgic songs of the 1980s which fits perfectly in the ‘80s-themed town of Hawkins. The show creators realize how important music can be when you are trying to convey the emotions behind a scene in the episodes and they have done a brilliant job so far in it.
