Almost everything about Netflix’s “Stranger Things” was instantly iconic right out of the gate, from the ’80s-authentic characters to the stellar opening credits sequence.
And then there’s the music of “Stranger Things,” credited to Michael Stein and Kyle Dixon of the electronic band Survive. The synth-heavy, John Carpenter-inspired tunes, particularly the main theme, won us over immediately, helping to make the show feel not simply like an ’80s homage but rather like a lost piece of entertainment from the ’80s.
Musician Julian Bahmani (Volpe Music) is such a massive fan of the “Stranger Things” theme song that he’s just remade some of his other favorite themes in its style!
“Like many people, I am obsessed with Stranger Things. The thing I like most about it is the music – the theme song is instantly iconic,” Bahmani explains. “It’s, for me, right up there with some of the best theme songs of all time. And it got me wondering what other movie theme songs would sound like if they were played in the style of Stranger Things.”
What would the themes from Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Rocky and other classic movies sound like in the “Stranger Things” style? Listen to Bahmani’s remakes below!
