25 Best 'Mad Men' Musical Moments

From Sinatra to Stones, Bowie to 'Zou Bisou Bisou' — the show's choicest song selections

The Spencer Davis Group, 'I'm a Man' (Season 7, Episode 1)

It's the beginning of the end, and Don seems like his old self: clean-shaven and strolling out of an airport in his fedora, a smart suit, and slick shades.
