'Mad Men' Weekly Music Discussions Resume Monday

Saturday, 12 April 2014 09:06 AM Written by 

My Monday morning discussions of various historical songs featured in Mad Men episodes proved pretty popular last year. So I'll resume posting Monday mornings, following the Season 1 (Part 1) premiere Sunday.  If you weren't around last season, I'd look at the history and circumstances of songs used on the show, who wrote them and originally recorded them, with added context on the circumstances and my opinion how the song (or songs) fit ioto a given episode.  The first episode this season starts in January of 1969 (when I was in the final semester of my Senior year of high school), so we'll just have to take them as they come.

This is an example from last year.
