Postmodern Jukebox has made a name for itself reimagining pop songs in surprising genres, but their latest mashup does something new. They took Bastille’s “Pompeii” and mixed in some of the music of 1969, when the current season of Mad Men is set.
They kick off with a nod to a British Invasion band you probably haven’t listened to enough, then melt into their other samplings fluidly, incorporating the Mad Men theme song and a bit of the chanting found in Bastille’s original version. It all fits together surprisingly well. Guest singer Tony DeSare even has a bit of the Don Draper look.
