The 80's was my 7-17 year range- so I really was a kid of the 80's. The hit Netflix series- Stranger things- was an amazing trip back to my childhood and I was so excited to binge watch the first season. What struck me was how the music played such an important role in the series- as much as any of the characters in the show. The soundtrack is everything I would imagine the 80's sounding like. It is filled with awesome analog synths and now Reverb.com has taken a deep dive into the what makes the soundtrack so awesome.
