The second season of Netflix’s retro sci-fi show Stranger Things ended before it even started, or so it seems. What to do while we wait for the third season?

Played on the santoor and tabla, Kamaljeet Ahluwalia and Jas Ahluwalia’s Indian classical version of the theme is an absolute joy to hear. It embellishes the song with just enough desi-ness while retaining the 1980s retro-thriller feel.
This graceful harp cover (below) is also equally mesmerising and scintillating:
Don’t forget this Carnatic version of the theme from 2016. And in case you need a refresher of the original Netflix theme, watch the opening credits below.
