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. Of course, similarly, prostitutes have no identity like Marx’s working poor class whereas the middle and Bourgeoisie have social lives.
