Relive Season 1.

Netflix’s creepy new TV series Stranger Things has been the surprise hit of the summer. Set in ’80s suburban Indiana, Season One weaves together a nostalgic bundle of missing kids, psychic powers, night monsters and kicks under the family table.

If you’ve been watching, you’ll have spotted the endless hit-taps to ’70s and ’80s movies – referencing The Goonies, Alien, E.T, Poltergeist, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, A Nightmare on Elm Street – and yet, somehow, there’s something deeply original about the show.

One of its most stand-out components is the soundtrack which features phenomenal synthesizer-led score from Austin band S U R V I V E’s Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein, plus iconic tracks by The Clash, Joy Division, Moby, Dolly Parton, Jefferson Airplane, Vangelis and more. We can no longer listen to ‘Should I Stay or Should I Go’ without shuddering.

We’re also having massive withdrawal symptoms having binged on Season One. Thankfully, as Noisey highlights, DJ Yoda has put together this hour-long recording, mixing soundtrack cuts and other ’80s hits with dialogue and SFX, which you can stream in full below:
