Almost immediately, they find the song and they are able to open the door to reality for her. Those few minutes were risky, but they figured it out. Did she get out? It would spoil the moment for you if you’d know this.
Songs in the Stranger Things
Any show or movie is as effective and appealing as they are is because music plays a huge role in supporting the plot. The Stranger Things is no exception. Sci-Fi thrilling drama has some beautifully relevant songs that make the particular scene more effective.
This scene where they have to find Max’s favorite song to rescue her is also symbolic of the situation and her state of mind. Her favorite song ‘Running Up That Hill’ by Kate Bush plays the portal to her mind is open. She is tied by Venca in order to keep her there in the Upside Down. As the song plays and Venca says, ‘They can’t help you, Max.’ But Mex gathers her strength and faith and says, ‘You’re not really here.’
‘Come on, Come on, Darling. Let’s exchange the experience…’ and she frees herself from the grip of Venca’s trap and runs towards the portal. Running up the hill of chaos to be free from it.
Thus, music becomes the key here. As Hatch said, ‘Music can reach parts of the brain that words can’t.’ You have to watch the episode to know whether or not this lifeline to reality worked for Max.
