Now that you’ve binged all of Stranger Things 3 (which you obviously have), you probably want to lose yourself in the summer of 1985. And thanks to some Joyce Byers-inspired detective work on our part, now you can!
We were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at this season of the cult show, so we collected all the tracks from the latest soundtrack for the surreal and strange happenings in Hawkins, Indiana. You can listen to the whole thing via our nifty Spotify playlist here, or you can check out each of the tracks below!
Episode One: Suzie, Do You Copy?
The first episode comes in hot with two massive hits, setting the tone for the quality and much, much bigger budget this season.

Baba O’Riley – The Who
Episode Two: Mall Rats
The sophomore offering this season adds some more deep cut tracks that stray from the era but still add to the vibe.
You Don’t Mess Around With Jim – Jim Croce

Episode Four: The Sauna Test
This somber episode only uses one classic track and it does so with an unbelievably creepy effect.

Episode Five: The Source
A visit to see an old ally leads to a couple of super intriguing song choices, including becomes a recurring jazzy theme.
Strike Zone – Loverboy

Heading into the last few episodes of the season we get some fun film references and a disco-rock classic.

The penultimate offering this time around is super serious, and so only rocks one song as the episode opens.

In what will likely become the fan-favorite moment of the entire show, we get a stunning duet and one of the best songs ever written.
