British singer-songwriter Kate Bush still doesn’t give much credit for what happened: her huge success Go Up This Hill (Deal with God) He lives a second life thanks to his leading appearance in the last season of the series Weird thingsand Netflix. In fact, thanks to this new batch, it reached number one in the UK and top 10 in the US for the first time.
37 years after its premiere, it has become one of the themes of the season.
This is why Bush’s reaction is somewhat shocked by the panorama, as he hinted in a recent BBC interview: “It’s a great series, so I thought the song would grab attention,” he said about the track’s arrival into production.
Then he added: “But I never imagined that something like this would happen. It’s so exciting. But it’s so shocking, isn’t it?” I mean, the whole world went crazy. What’s really cool, I think, is that this is a completely new audience that, in many cases, has never heard of me and I love it. The idea of all these young people hearing the song for the first time and discovering it… well, I think it’s very special.”
The English also praised the way the creators did it Weird thingsThe Dover brothers used the song as a frequent source of escape for the Max character. “I think they put it in a really special place. I was already familiar with the series. And I thought, ‘What a nice way to use the song in such a positive way.’ You know, kind of like a spell for Max. I think it’s very touching.”
On the other hand, he said that despite some nostalgia for the ’80s, he thinks life today is “incredibly exciting”: “It’s a terrible time on so many levels, so hard. But it’s also a time when incredible things happen. Technology advances.” At this amazing rate. This is really overwhelming. But, you know, there are a lot of advances in medicine and there are positive things. You just have to look a lot harder to find them now.” He stressed that this does not include watching TikTok. “That sounds ridiculous,” he said between laughter.
