One of my favourite songs from Stranger Things is Runaway by Bon Jovi. Runaway was from the Lost episode where Eleven meets Eight who has powers too and a gang.

Ironically, Bon Jovi’s “Runaway” is basically about the working poor. A girl runs away from an abusive family home only to end up a prostitute in the big city. Eventually, the runaway must get a job to survive like Marx’s working poor class as the theory goes. Of course, similarly, prostitutes have no identity like Marx’s working poor class whereas the middle and Bourgeoisie have social lives, in theory anyways.
