2022: "Running Up That Hill" resurgence
After being included on the soundtrack for season four of the Netflix series Stranger Things, Bush's 1985 single "Running Up That Hill" gained newfound popularity in May 2022, becoming the most-streamed song on Spotify in the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and globally.[122][123][124] On 10 June 2022, it charted at number two on the UK Singles Chart, surpassing its peak of number three from 1985.[125]

After "Running Up That Hill" had reached number two in the UK charts on 10 June, it was revealed to be the most popular track of the week in the UK, ahead of chart topper "As It Was" by Harry Styles, but a pre-existing chart rule penalised older songs that are streamed.[126] The Chart Supervisory Committee responded by giving the record an exemption from the ACR accelerated decline rule due to its ongoing sales resurgence.[127][128] On 17 June 2022, the song reached number one on the UK Singles Chart, making it Bush's second UK number one single.[129][130]

On the US Billboard Hot 100 issue dated 11 June 2022, the song re-entered the chart at number eight, surpassing its original peak of number 30 in November 1985 to become Bush's first US top-ten hit.[131] A week later it climbed to number four in the US

Ironic that Kate Bush wins the round in which people were discussing Dave Mustaine's voice being too annoying for them to overcome.

Sure, I can see how it could be annoying. I'd never fault anyone for not liking Kate Bush's voice because it's a lot with all the melodrama and dramatic swooping. It's an acquired taste. But it's also technically good. And it is in keeping with the kind of music she writes. Wuthering Heights wouldn't be half the song it is without her singing it, and it's already god tier level songwriting and arrangement.


But, by absolute any measure, Dave Mustaines voice is horrendous. it's technically poor and it doesn't even add the needed menace those songs deserve. It's almost hilarious how desperately he wants to sound evil. Maybe on a good day he sounds cranky. I struggle to think of a worse singer in any genre.


Like, I've grown used to it over the years, and his band is brilliant. But does anyone on earth actually like them because of his voice? If so, I've never met or talked to or dreamt of such a person.
