I love the tv show Mad Men on AMC. I think it’s one of the freshest and most interesting shows on tv for a long time. It’s great drama and I really love watching the behind the scenes of the advertising industry in the 60s. Such a unique concept.
The music is always fun and interesting on Mad Men so I figured I should come up with my own mix of tracks inspired by what I’ve heard on the show. I’m really curious as there’s been some really cool obscure cuts so I’ve researched, read about and learned what tracks they are playing.
Why not start the mix with the RJD2 remix of the great Astrud Gilberto song right? Well you all probably know RJD2 did the theme track to Mad Men called A Beautiful Mine so it was pretty convenient to include this track from Verve Remixed 3. We can end the mix with A Beautiful Mine (Instrumental) by RJD2!
Leslie Gore doing Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows was mostly inspired by the 2 Mad Men kids I thought it was perfect here. Although Tonight You Belong To Me is very cute and has so much childish qualities to it too but I thought a better representation of a song for the kids was the Leslie Gore song.
I wanted to include Yma Sumac because I heard an Yma Sumac song on the show. I don’t remember which song it was but you can’t miss Yma Sumac as her voice is pretty obvious.
Marilyn Monroe ended up in the mix because it was one of the subplots in the show so it had to be included. When you look at the rest of the tracklist you can see every track makes sense to be included on the mix. I love the show so much I had great fun putting together this mix! What do you think?
Could this be the soundtrack to Mad Men? Maybe!
It was so much fun to put this mix together! Enjoy.
