Mad Music: Songs from Mad Men, Season 1

By Joshua Frattarola

Aug 16, 2013

Here's my first attempt at compiling YouTube videos of some of the notable songs playing behind scenes, with some of them taking the center stage. Where the original was not available, I posted the closest version I could find. I've only put the first 30 of my list here...I'll add the other 30 in a Part 2.

I've had this list lying around for a while.  These entries are in chronological order, but I never noted the particular episodes for each song. When I get more time, I will attempt to annotate the particular episodes where each of these played. If you know which belongs where, please help me out by posting it in the comments.
