Mad Men and the Sound of ‘66

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Last week, Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner announced a last-minute musical change to the show’s season five premiere. Dusty Springfield’s “The Look of Love” was cut after critics pointed out that the song wasn’t released until late 1967 – more than a year after the episode was set to take place. Today, Rolling Stone editor Anthony DeCurtis tells us what was being heard in mid-1966, from Frank Sinatra’s “Strangers in the Night” to Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence” to the Rolling Stones’ “Paint it, Black.”
