Mad Men Music Monday

27 May

This week’s Mad Men presented some of the characters with choices from their past and present in both professional and personal capacities. Peggy and Megan face conundrums that cover both of these aspects of their lives and the song that closed the episode really pulled the focus on Peggy. Peggy stood in the middle between the offices of her two bosses and she has just been rejected by Ted as he doesn’t acknowledge their previous conversation where they both admitted they had feelings for each other. Peggy has earlier told Don that Ted has never made her feel the way Don does, but now that isn’t the case either. Peggy has already had the night from hell as she accidentally stabbed Abe (she thought he was an intruder) and then Abe broke up with her in a semi-delirious state saying  “Your activities are offensive to my every waking moment; I’m sorry, but you’ll always be the enemy.” Peggy has been set adrift by her boyfriend and her current mentor and the song “(There’s) Always Something There to Remind Me” by Lou Johnson that plays over this end scene perfectly fits the tone of this moment and this episode that has had so many characters looking to the past (Roger, Don, Peggy). Peggy, Megan is also crying out for a friend and one that doesn’t hit on her so I would suggest you give her a call.
