Mad Men – The Theme Song Performed Live

In celebration of last night’s season finale of Mad Men, here’s a pretty good cover of the theme song (which is A Beautiful Mine by RJD2) performed live with a full band.

From the creators:

We loved the song “A Beautiful Mine” by RJD2 that plays during the opening credits of “Mad Men.” We wanted to put lyrics to it and realized that “Nature Boy” made famous by Nat King Cole, and written by eden ahbez, was the perfect fit. This was filmed in one take (this one, specifically, happened to be take 29 of the day)…no cuts, dubbing, lip-syncing or auto-tuning.
