Kate Bush‘s “Running Up That Hill” can now add “helped secure Emmy nomination” to its list of post-Stranger Things accomplishments.

The Neftlix sci-fi show’s music supervisor Nora Felder is up for Outstanding Music Supervision at the 2022 Emmys, specifically for the episode “Chapter Four: Dear Billy.” While “Running Up That Hill” is used throughout the latest Stranger Things season, it’s heard most prominently in “Dear Billy” when — spoiler alert — the 1985 single helps the character Max Mayfield escape from the Upside Down villain Vecna.

Since its placement in Stranger Things, “Running Up That Hill” has become a resurgent hit, giving Bush her first ever top-five hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and hitting #1 in her native U.K. The massive success of the song led the normally press-shy Bush to issue several public statements and even give her first interview in years.

The 2022 Emmys will air September 12 on NBC.
