S2, Ep It's the summer of '69 — the dresses are short, the party guests stoned. And what edgy, street-fightin' record is spinning on the hi-fi? It is exactly the kind of unhip song that would be playing at a party in and exactly the kind of record no other TV show or movie set in the '60s would have put on its soundtrack.
As if knowing the song isn't quite cool enough for her party, Megan pulls the record off and implores her musician friends to play. In a season one episode, four junior Sterling Cooper admen gather in oily executive Pete Campbell's office to listen to a comedy album. Here again is a side of the '60s that Weiner unearths and celebrates — the curiosities, the detritus, the cheese, some of it surprisingly enduring.
It takes a puckish sense of humor to feature a song by peppy British hitmaker Petula Clark, and then choose not her enduring smash " Downtown " but rather its soundalike followup hit, " I Know a Place. Many of these quirky hits are strategically placed for period-accurate ambience — and gentle commentary.
When Don arrives at the apartment of his season three mistress, schoolteacher Suzanne Farrell, spinning on her turntable is the late-'63 French-language smash Two Mad Men - Various - Accidental Occidentalism (CD) by the Singing Nun — a perfect encapsulation, for Don, of her alluring innocence.
In season four, Shirley Ellis's tongue-twisting, banana-fanna-fo-fanning hit "The Name Game" plays on the jukebox of a diner where Don brings his kids. In season six, when the too-old-to-be-hip Sterling Cooper men visit L.
Riley's sassy, poseur-destroying chart-topper "Harper Valley P. TV bloggers did catch one apparent anachronism in the episode that features Kyo Sakamoto's smash "Sukiyaki. However, it appears in Mad Men 's season two premiere, set in the spring of It would be nuts for Weiner to avoid totemic '60s artists fully.
Generally, when he has decided to invoke the decade's folkie bards and pop eminences, he makes his song choices count — at least half the time, he chooses non-hits, invoking everyone from Roy Orbison to The Zombies Two Mad Men - Various - Accidental Occidentalism (CD) the accompanying duh moment.
And since "You Only Live Twice" was actually one of Nancy Sinatra's smaller '60s hits, the song may now be more Two Mad Men - Various - Accidental Occidentalism (CD) with Don Draper — how great was that season five finale montage? As for the Fab Four, Weiner telegraphed the Beatles' influence on the show Don buying his daughter Sally's affection with tickets to their Shea Stadium gig long before he had the budget to license their music. When he finally did inhe went with an especially heady Lennon cut — "Tomorrow Never Knows," the closing track on the quite literally pivotal album Revolver — and has an exasperated, unimpressed Draper lift the needle off the record before the song even finishes.
NPR's own Ann Powers questioned Weiner's use of the song, and whether it would ever have alienated a savvy ad man like Don. But let's pause and admire Weiner's chutzpah one more time: You have one quarter-million-dollar budget to devote to licensing one Beatles song — the very act is guaranteed media attention — and you choose one of their thorniest and least radio-friendly albeit one of their greatest?
Talk about meta: Weiner's "Tomorrow Never Knows" scene was his own tobacco letteran advertisement for its own daring that became more about the show's influence than about the show's content. If it wasn't one of Mad Men 's best musical moments, it was perhaps the show's most savvy — Don Draper himself could have dreamed it up. Here's the other half of the "totemic" category — the dozen or so of times Mad Men has gone straight for the jugular, choosing songs that were not only huge hits but still clearly read as '60s iconography.
But for those of us with Billboard mojo, it's a clever moment — Chubby Checker's smash hit No. Peggy, Mad Men 's ultimate liminal character, is a one-woman representation of both audiences, twisting her arrival into self-assured adulthood. No wonder the petty, controlling Pete doesn't want to dance with her. Most of these expensive-to-license smashes appeared after season four, suggesting Weiner was more hamstrung by his fledgling show's budget early on than by any deliberate artistic choice.
But even over the last few seasons, Weiner has spent his newfound clout on coveted songs just infrequently enough to make their appearance feel indelible rather than inevitable. Most of these songs are not used diegetically — "My Way" is playing on an on-screen radio, but otherwise it's debatable whether, say, Peggy is thinking about the Kinks at her moment of freedom.
But the fact that these songs were all big hits is essential to these scenes — they define the background of the characters' lives. If Sunday's first episode of season Two Mad Men - Various - Accidental Occidentalism (CD). For me, though, none of these moments tops the most moving use of music in Mad Men 's history, the finale of season six.
