Kate Bush triumphs on the Official Irish Singles Chart this week, as her 1985 single Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) reaches Number 1.

Denying Harry Styles an 11th week on top, Running Up That Hill leapfrogs both As It Was and Lizzo's About Damn Time, rising from Number 3 to Number 1 and reaching the top spot for the first time.

Running Up That Hill skyrocketed up the charts after it featured in episodes one and four of the newly-released fourth season of Netflix's Stranger Things.

In the show, Max Mayfield, played by Sadie Sink, is heard listening to the song on her Walkman.

Bush said she has been "overwhelmed by the scale of affection and support" for the song as she thanked fans for making the track number one.

She also praised the creators of the popular horror drama for "bringing the song into so many people’s lives".

Bush said: "I believe the Duffer Brothers have touched people’s hearts in a special way at a time that’s incredibly difficult for everyone, especially younger people.

"By featuring Running Up That Hill in such a positive light, as a talisman for Max (one of the main female characters), the song has been brought into the emotional arena of her story.

"Fear, conflict and the power of love are all around her and her friends.

"I salute the Duffer Brothers for their courage – taking this new series into a much more adult and darker place. I want to thank them so much for bringing the song into so many people’s lives.

"I’m overwhelmed by the scale of affection and support the song is receiving, and it’s all happening really fast, as if it’s being driven along by a kind of elemental force.

"I have to admit I feel really moved by it all. Thank you so very much for making the song a No 1 in such an unexpected way."

Over on the album chart George Ezra scores his third Top 5 album with Gold Rush Kid, as it claims this week's highest new entry.

Debuting at Number 3, Gold Rush Kid follows the success of George’s debut Wanted On Voyage (2014) and Staying At Tamara’s (2018).

Meanwhile, Harry Styles keeps his position at Number 1 with his own third album Harry’s House, which now marks a fourth consecutive week at the top.
