A recording of the Sixties French pop "Zou Bisou Bisou" sung by actress Jessica Paré from last night's season premiere of Mad Men has been released as a download in the iTunes store. A limited edition seven-inch single of the recording is being sold through the Mad Men website, and the song will also be available as a download through Amazon later this week, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Paré's performance of the song as Megan Draper, Don Draper's young new wife, was a highlight of the two-hour episode. In the scene, Megan sings the song with a band of Sixties hipsters at a surprise birthday party for her husband, who can barely suppress his embarrassment and discomfort. The song was a hit for French singer Gillian Hills and was sung by Sophia Loren in the 1960 film The Millionairess.
You can watch a clip of Paré's rendition of the song on the show below, though keep in mind that this video was made by a fan filming their television, so everything is just a bit off.
