Are all of the child actors from Stranger Things just really talented musicians or did these kids actually get super powers from being on the show? Seriously, I need to know because three of the five main kids from the show have clips of them either singing or playing an instrument and they are all incredibly good. Like probably better than a lot of adults. How they haven’t started an 80s cover band called “Stranger Things” is beyond me.
First up, we’ve got Gaten Matarazzo, the toothless chubby loser named Dustin in the show who absolutely CRUSHES a rendition of “Bring Him Home” from Les Miserables.
Jesus Christ, almighty. What a performer! If he doesn’t make it in Hollywood he should move to New York and get a job on Broadway. Gaten’s got the voice of a pre-pubescent angel.
Finn Wolfhard, who plays Mike Wheeler in the show is apparently all about that 90s grunge scene. If he doesn’t start dabbling in heroin he could probably be a pretty good guitarist.
A short clip for sure, but his “Lithium” cover was good and that death stare at the end of the clip is diabolical. Twelve-year-old girls everywhere are lining up to kiss this kid and hold hands.
I saved the best for last, because, well, I liked this version of “Thinking Out Loud” more than Ed Sheeran’s original. Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven, kills it. Not really any other way to put it. I might illegally download this one onto my phone. That’s how much I liked El’s version.
Goddamn. Absolutely incredible. El should actually just quit acting and sing for a living. She’ll end up getting typecast as some genetically modified freak in every show and movie from here on out, anyway. Give her a few months with a producer and she’d be putting out heaters a la Ariana Grande. .
