Mad Men Goes Nightclub

by

Not much posting today due to annoying cold (whose symptoms I will refrain from describing in detail; this is a family website), but here’s the latest TV-related video, where Allison Williams — Brian’s daughter — sings the Mad Men theme song by adding the lyrics from the Nat King Cole hit “Nature Boy.” Personally I feel like the lyrics don’t quite fit, and besides, all instrumental themes are really meant to be sung with just the title, over and over. (This applies most obviously to any instrumental theme song written for Superman.) Still, the camerawork and production values are good, and it could pass for one of those old movie scenes where characters go to a nightclub and hear the performer doing the theme song from their own film.

Update: As pointed out in comments, this is not just a case of adding lyrics, but a mashup of two songs: over the beat of the Mad Men theme (“A Beautiful Mine”) “Nature Boy” is sung, both music and lyrics.
