Ingrid Michaelson’s Stranger Songs

I was a huge fan of the first season of the TV show Stranger Thing. I loved the sci-fi teen adventure plot with an 80’s feel, it reminded me of the movies ET and Goonies and I also loved that they bailed Winona Ryder’s ass out of a mall jail somewhere to star. Then season…
