When Kate Bush released "Running Up That Hill" in 1985, we'd wager she didn't expect the song to top the Billboard 200 chart 27 years after its release. But sometimes the truth is stranger than fiction.

After finding new life in Netflix's hit sci-fi series Stranger Things, the persevering song's meteoric rise has attracted a new faction of admiring music producers looking to put their spin on it.

Read on to listen to five of our favorite remix interpretations of "Running Up That Hill."
