The new trailer dropped recently and the Michael Jackson remix just kills:

The new series of the smash hit show is coming this Halloween. We obviously want to hear lots more from S U R V I V E - their nostalgic, John Carpenter-y noises are simply perfect for the show - but we also wanna hear some more great selections. "Should I Stay Or Should I Go" is an entirely new song for a whole generation - the folks behind Stranger Things can certainly pick a tune. Maybe there's a prolific DJ career down the line... but if they need a hand, here are some suggestions.

Bruce Springsteen - "Dancing In The Dark"

Dancing? In the dark? Retro synths, drum smashes galore, and the appeal of The Boss in small-town Indiana. There's some excellent potential for dramatic irony here.

Depeche Mode - "People Are People"

Eleven definitely isn't gone for good, is she? She just can't be. So when she inevitably returns and she and Lucas fall out again, this is an ideal backdrop.

The Cure - "Close To Me"

The Cure can be dark indeed, but maybe they can soundtrack a hormone-charged moment between Steve and Nancy? Or, perhaps, Jonathan and Nancy? Perhaps Robert Smith & Co. are bit gothic for the high school jock, but the reclusive photographer? He'd surely be into it.

David Bowie - "Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)"

Excellent montage potential. Stranger Things is just full of literal scary monsters and metaphorical super creeps.

Siouxsie and The Banshees - "Painted Bird"

Broody, shadowy, powerful, dangerous... this would be a great choice for when we get justice for Barb.
