People Are Losing It Over Dustin & Suzie’s Song On Stranger Things 3

People Are Losing It Over Dustin & Suzie’s Song On Stranger Things 3

Claudia Maddaluno · 1 year ago · Music

A few days ago the British pop star Limahl posted a status on Instagram in which he said that his song NeverEnding Story surprisingly reached a new peak in streaming plays in the last week (after 35 years from its release) and that this could happen thanks to Stranger Things 3.

In the final episode of season 3, the authors of the beloved Netflix series have chosen to feature the theme song from the cult classic ’80s film, reopening a newfound interest in the iconic song.

The singer Christopher Hamill aka Limahl says he didn’t watch the hit series and that his 23yr old nephew Josh messaged him to say that his NeverEnding Story song is being featured in Stranger Things 3. So he only watched the duet scene featuring Dustin Henderson (Gaten Matarazzo) and his girlfriend Suzie (Gabriella Pizzolo) and was so touched that he thanked Netflix for giving the song a chance to reach a whole new audience.

YouTube reports that the daily views of his original music video have totaled an increase of 800% on July 6, while Spotify confirms that the streams of the track soared about 825% compared to the previous week.

Moreover, this is not the first time that Netflix gives a second chance to Limahl’s music.

Last Christmas, Black Mirror: Bandersnatch featured his hit Too Shy in the series original soundtrack and it was also a surprise for the singer because, as he explained to EW, “I had nothing to do with the licensing“.

But this time it’s different because people are losing it over Dustin and Suzie singing “NeverEnding Story” on Stranger Things 3 final episode.

The duet scene moves us because that’s the first time we meet the character of Dustin’s long distance girlfriend Suzie, the one that he can’t stop talking about throughout the season.
We only know her in the finale when it’s revealed that Suzie is an actual human and not an imaginary friend Dustin created.

Suzie finally asks the Dustin call on the radio and helps him and his friend to save the world giving the numbers in Planck’s constant. But she first forced his boyfriend to sing a duet of NeverEnding Story‘s theme song with her.

The moment is a surprise romantic break to the tension of the final episode and it’s one of the best moments ever seen on Stranger Things 3.

Everything smells like 1985, not only for the memory of Falkon the luckdragon woken up by this song: the set design of Suzie’s bedroom, the walkie talkies also remind us that era.

If we go on YouTube to see that scene several times it’s because we are true romantic lads or because we are hopeless nostalgic retromaniacs in love with our past. Maybe it happens because, now that these episodes are over, we want to live again the emotions of this third season. In my opinion, the best one so far.

We could have also another reason for it.

In this wonderful storytelling and in this huge amount of 80’s quotes that Stranger Things gives to us, we are happy to find the same, reassuring, truth already present in NeverEnding Story: in the struggle between good and evil, only the love will save the world.

Denise Rashidi and the coloring book about Japan

Giulia Guido · 2 weeks ago · Art

Fernweh is one of those fantastic untranslatable words that often contain a deep meaning. In this case, Fernweh, a German word, means “longing for distance”, that is the feeling that assails us when we want to leave and go as far away from home as possible. 

At least once in our lives, especially in recent months, we have all experienced such a feeling and it is precisely from this overwhelming desire to travel that Denise Rashidi let herself be inspired for her latest work. 

Denise Rashidi is a German illustrator who, during a trip to Japan, was captivated by the beauty of the streets, the particularity of the architecture, so much so that she started drawing them. This is how Daydreaming in Japan was born: A Coloring Book and Travel Adventure, a self-published book with decision makers and dozens of views of Japanese cities and villages to color as you like. 

Obviously, Denise Rashidi also gave her personal interpretation to the illustrations, coloring them with warm, almost neon tones, turning the places into surreal, dreamlike places. 

If you love Japan and have an incredible desire to travel, Daydreaming in Japan: A Coloring Book and Travel Adventure could be your next purchase.

Alex Senna’s street art, made of people and shadows

Alex Senna’s street art, made of people and shadows

Giulia Guido · 1 week ago · Art

The first time we talked about Alex Senna we focused on the romantic aspect of his works. Now, almost 3 years later, we return to focus on the Brazilian street artist‘s work, paying attention to another aspect of his artwork that has become more and more frequent. 

Since he started, Alex Senna has been filling the cities of the world, from Brazil to Italy, from the United States to Hong Kong, with his murals depicting simple black and white characters, a stylistic choice due to the artist’s colorblindness.

These figures are represented in their everyday life and, like everyone on the street, they too walk, look around, push a bicycle or wait to cross. What makes Alex Senna’s characters out of the ordinary is the point of view, each of them is depicted seen from above, or slightly biased, and to complete the mural their shadow comes overwhelmingly. 

It is precisely the latter that never seems to be missing in Alex’s work and that gives the images a melancholic air: a woman walks dragging her black and dark shadow as if it were a burden to carry around, as if she were hiding all her thoughts and worries. Everyone is free to see in Alex Serra’s shadows what he wants, what makes him happy or sad, carefree or worried.
