In one of the standout scenes from Stranger Things season 4, Max Mayfield listens to Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill to escape the Mind Lair of Venca — this is her "savior song" and you can find yours on Spotify.
To coincide with the release of the final two episodes of Stranger Things season 4 volume 2, Netflix has teamed up with the streaming platform Spotify, to help you work out which song would save you from Venca’s grasp. Mine is Murder On The Dancefloor by Sophie Ellis-Bextor (make of that what you will), but here’s how to find yours.
How to find your "savior song"
In order to find your savior song, you’ll need to have a Spotify account — for those who don’t use the streaming platform, feel free to curate your own playlist and share it with friends should you ever start seeing a ticking grandfather clock.
On Spotify, search for your ‘Upside Down Playlist’. You’ll then see a curated playlist of 50 songs that would help you make a dramatic exit from the grasps of Venca, the first song on the list is your savior song, which has been identified by Spotify's algorithm as one you listen to frequently.

According to Spotify: “The Upside Down Playlist takes some of your favorite songs and mixes them with a handful of Stranger Things classics to create a vibe strong enough to ward off Hawkins’ most fearsome foe."
The good news is if you aren’t happy with your savior song (or it’s too embarrassing to share), the collection updates automatically each day, so grab your Walkman (aka one of our picks for the best phones), your bike, and your bomber jacket, and get listening.
And we've also chewed over a whole bunch of questions Stanger Things season 4 left us with, which we hope are answered in the last two episodes.
