I spent most of yesterday laid up on my couch with a neck spasm, so I passed the time by browsing YouTube. In my muscle relaxant-fueled delirium I came across three cover versions of the Mad Men theme song, “A Beautiful Mine” by RJD2. You can check out my finds below.
Mad Men-All Bass Cover by Adam Ben E
Bassist Adam Ben Ezra plays the tune on electric and upright bass.
The Theme from Mad Men-A Cappella
Vocalist Mike Boxer produced, arranged, and performed an all vocal version of the song.
Mad Men Theme Song… With a Twist
This video, produced by VideosRecordedLive mashes up “A Beautiful Mine” with Nat King Cole’s “Nature Boy”. I have to say that vocalist Alison Williams has an absolutely lovely voice.
