Those of us addicted to the Netflix original series Stranger Things generally agree: the soundtracks kick ass. Taking place in the 1980s, the series is nostalgia-heavy. Intentionally evoking classic 80s Steven and Stephen (Spielberg & King), the series has pulled the right strings. Season 4 appears to be no different, with that haunting version of “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)” by Journey taking center stage.
The song is not just a cool tune for the show, but important to the themes of this season. Our characters are indeed worlds apart, separated for the first time.
Joining the cast this year is the original Freddie Krueger, Robert England himself. According to creators the Duffer brothers, this is the classic horror season of the show. Expect that Nightmare on Elm Street vibe.
