Mad Men Playlist

This playlist is full of great finds from the early 1960s - it'll cast a spell on your next Mad Men party. Soaring emotions and grandeur, torturous heartbreak, and a considerable ration of sexism - this mix will transport you to the world of elbow-length gloves and smoking in the delivery room.

I made this mix years ago and still listen to it all the time. I love throwing it on when I'm about to throw a dinner party. It pairs beautifully with an A-line skirt or a glass of scotch on the rocks.

7. Wives and Lovers/Jack Jones
8. Beyond the Sea/Bobby Darin
9. Magic Moments/Perry Como
10. It Had to Be You/Frank Sinatra
11. Wishin' and Hopin'/Brenda Lee
