From "Everybody's Somebody's Fool" And "Most People Get Married" To "You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You" And "I Got You Babe"
LOS ANGELES, March 2, 2011 -- If you were in the early '60s milieu of "Mad Men," the groundbreaking AMC series about the glamorous and ego-driven Golden Age of advertising, what music would you listen to on the radio? Those songs are heard on Mad Men: A Musical Companion (1960-1965) (Hip-O/UMe), released March 29, 2011. The two-CD package features nearly three dozen pop favorites of the era. With both major hits and rediscovered tracks from a wide spectrum of artists, from Chuck Berry, Dusty Springfield and Sonny & Cher ("I Got You Babe" is heard over the end credits of the Season Four finale) to Dean Martin, Jackie Wilson, Tom Jones, Roger Miller and Ella Fitzgerald, Mad Men: A Musical Companion (1960-1965) exudes the romance and innocence of much of the music of the time, often used to great ironic effect in the series.
One of the most critically acclaimed series on television and a three-time Emmy® winner for Outstanding Drama Series, the fourth season of "Mad Men" will be released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc from Lionsgate Home Entertainment on March 29th.
