Stranger Things season 3 soundtrack makes the perfect '80s playlist: Listen to the best songs
After two seasons of spooky Halloween adventures, Stranger Things turned up the heat with a full season set in the Hawkins summertime sunshine.
Not only did that give all the fan-favorite characters a chance to show off their personal style and interests when school was out (and while fighting the Mind Flayer), but it also gave fans the perfect ’80s playlist for pool parties, barbecues, and beach days thanks to all the incredible and nostalgic throwback songs peppered in throughout all eight episodes.
Plus, we even got an epic live performance from Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) and his new girlfriend in one of the best moments of the entire season, hands down. We bet you’re still humming along to “The Neverending Story” …
