Music from Mad Men (TV Series)



Just four years after common people, I finally started watching Mad Men. And I couldn't resist spotifyin' it. The series is set in the 60s, so it is most of the soundtrack. Songs lists are from three different sources: AMC and Mad Men Songs for seasons 1-3. This Top Idol post for season 4. I made a single playlist for each season and a big mammoth with all of them. Enjoy!

  2. Any idea who does the guitar based instrumental music used in the season 5 promo? I can't seem to find it or a reference to it anywhere. Thanks.
