Music Monday: A Hazy Shade of Winter on Stranger Things

18 Jul

Stranger Things is here for all your coming of age movie nostalgia needs and the new 8-part Netflix series delivers on the early 80s front on a variety of levels. The music is one thing that instantly stands out blending a tension building synth score with a variety of standout songs including The Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go” threading throughout. Stranger ThingsOne standout moment comes at the end of the second episode when we smash to the credits just as the guitar kicks in on The Bangle’s version of the classic Simon & Garfunkel track “A Hazy Shade of Winter.” Simon & Garfunkel have a special place in my heart and I have been listening to them for as long as I can remember – they were a staple cassette choice in car journeys – and I am always thrilled to hear one of their tracks getting used; cover version or original.

Even though you will want to click straight on the next episode (because whoa that ending) and Netflix might even autoplay (as it rudely tried to do with me) take a moment to enjoy this song choice. Or click on the video below.

      Except the show is set in 1983 and the song came out in 1987.
