Step Back into the ’80s and Stream “Stranger Things” Season 2 Soundtrack, Unlock Spotify’s The Upside Down Filter

With Halloween approaching, we’ve been listening to our favorite bewitching tunes from our megamixes vol. I and vol. II but we’ve also been listening to the soundtrack for the first season of the addicting sci-fi/horror series Stranger Things. If you haven’t watched it, you really should be (it has a bit of everything) and it’s the perfect blend of ’80s nostalgia. If you have seen the show, you know the soundtrack was an intricate part of the show. Without spoiling much of the series for those who haven’t watched, there are mixtapes featured and shared between characters Jonathan Byers [Charlie Heaton] and younger brother Will [Noah Schnapp] which are a poignant and pivotal anchor of the show’s first season. The soundtrack plays a big part in transporting viewers not only to the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana but to the fall of 1983.

 

You can listen to the first season’s soundtrack below.
 

 

While the second season’s musical soundtrack is still being kept under wraps [only two more sleeps until the season two premiere] you can, however, listen to the score for season two which is provided by Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein of the Austin band S U R V I V E.

 

 

As you’re listening to either the season one soundtrack or the score for season two on Spotify, you’re able to unlock Stranger Things creepy easter egg while on the browser or app. It’s really simple. Pull up Stranger Things on Spotify and let it play for a few seconds. That’s it. Your screen will turn into the Demogorgon’s home, the Upside Down.

 

If you’re still not sure whether to watch the series… Think of it as a mashup of ET, Super 8, The Goonies, and a Stephen King novel. If that still doesn’t get your attention the infectious soundtrack will be sure to suck you in… Just make sure you don’t end up in the Upside Down.
