Could the End-Credits Song in This Week's 'Mad Men' Foreshadow the Rest of Don Draper's Year?
Sarah will have our full Mad Men recap up later, but we wanted to quickly give a shout out to Matthew Weiner for the excellent choice of end credits song this week, “This Will Be Our Year” by the Zombies, a single that was released in 1968 but that didn’t chart.
Given what you know about this week’s episode, “A Day’s Work,” the lyrics to “This Will Be Our Year,” are not only incredibly fitting to the episode’s endearing final seconds, but perhaps a glimpse into the rest of the year for Don Draper?
And I won’t forget The way you helped me Up when I was down And I won’t forget The way you said Darling I love you You gave me faith to go on Now we’re there And we’ve only just begun This will be our year Took a long time to come
Maybe coming clean to Sally will be the turning point in Don’s life, and 1969 may just be his year?
