Song of the Day: Echo & The Bunnymen – “Nocturnal Me”

The Netflix show Stranger Things has been one of the hottest new shows of the summer, and one thing people have enjoyed about it is the walk down memory lane it provides in terms of 1980s nostalgia. The show’s selection of music is one of several ways it does that as it’s filled with songs of that era — some well-known, others not as much. There were two songs in particular where I really liked how the show used them; I can’t get into specifics without getting spoilerish, but one was the terrific Bangles cover of “Hazy Shade of Winter” and the other is this track. The show isn’t really perfect in terms of correctly matching the music with the time frame; this song for example was released as part of Echo & The Bunneymen’s 1984 album Ocean Rain while the show takes place in 1983. But it was a cool inclusion to the show nonetheless.
