Song: “Kids Two”
Artist: Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein
Album: Stranger Things, Vol: 2 (A Netflix Original Series Soundtrack) (2016)
Stranger Things has become a cultural phenomenon due to its ability to create nostalgia for a time many of us have never known; this is doubly achieved by the score and music of the show. “Kids Two”, taken from the soundtrack of Season 1, includes a recurring melody and uses the infamous synthesizers to add a more uplifting tone. Fans of the show will instinctively be put in mind of its mood and the way the music enhances the emotional impact of the story. I feel nostalgic every time I hear it, which is interesting because the first season takes place 9 years before I was even born.
