The revival of Running Up That Hill in Stranger Things has seen the tune re-enter the charts in a number of countries and Kate has achieved her first ever top five single in America.

Her track has made it all the way to number four in the US charts almost forty years after it was released, with the single only reaching number 30 originally on the US Billboard Hot 100. 

And her song has hit number one in Norway and Austria, with her album Hounds of Love getting to the top spot on Billboard’s Top Alternative Albums Chart in the US.  

In the UK charts, the 80s ballad is already at number two but is expected to hit number one this week. 

The chances of the tune reaching the top spot have now increased as the Charts enacted a rule which stops older songs being penalised if their streams surge.  

Running Up That Hill is currently the UK’s most-streamed song, averaging 700,000 plays per day on Spotify.
