As we've been talking about all morning, the long-awaited 5th season of the television series, Mad Men, which premieres on AMC this coming Sunday. The show's not-so-long ago but seems-so-long-ago atmosphere is incredibly lush and is made whole through historical plot points and esthetic details. The masterful finishing touch of any theatrical or filmed period production is: the music. The Music of Mad Men is the music of the pre-1970s 20th century. Smokey American standards, bopping sock-hop dance hits, doo-wop, rock and roll and the music of the British invasion.
