10 ‘Mad Men’ Musical Moments That Will Take You On An Emotional Roller-Coaster

-By Frank Donovan

Tonight is the beginning of the end, fellow Mad Men fans. And if you’re like us, you’re anticipating higher highs and lower lows than ever as the final seven episodes of the series air this spring. As we well know, the show is not for the faint of heart–It’s an emotional roller-coaster ride that we sort of wish weren’t scheduled right when the Sunday night blues tend to hit. We blame the soundtrack.

Thinking back to moments of triumph and heartache during Mad Men over the last eight years, it’s always the music during the final scene and ending credits that tugs the hardest at our heartstrings. The music department really knows what they’re doing. How often is it that a heartbreaking scene cuts to black and a jaunty tune immediately blares, as if to tease us for being so invested? So cruel! But we wouldn’t have it any other way. So join us as we brace ourselves for emotional abuse via cable drama, with 10 moments when Mad Men music really socked it to us.
