I'd never heard this song before but I guess it was big in it's time. It's so spacey/futuristic & amusement park-ish & it fit so perfectly into what was going on in the show. So I've been listening to this daily since then & it makes me smile.

Eh, I'm used to it... My BFF tells me the same thing.

I hadn't thought of that but yeah it sounds dated and aged but that's part of what makes it so charming to me. Plus I'm a huge fan of Googie -
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Googie - (one of my must do things is to get to southern California some day & drive around taking pic of all that glorious cheesiness from a bygone era) and it seem very indicative of that time when the space travel theme seemed to be everywhere. Anyhoo Don was taking off to SoCal in a plane so it fit but it also fit with other things I won't get into since you haven't yet seen it. I watched all of S1 of Mad Men going why the hell am I watching this boring crud but once S2 started a lightbulb went off in my head and I thought this is brilliantI see more parallels to the Sopranos each time and since that was one of my all time faves I suspect this one may be too.

Googie - why didn't anyone call the style Googie back then? Ah well...It's cool, isn't it?
