Ending the Season 5 finale of "Mad Men" with Nancy Sinatra singing "You Only Live Twice" was sheer genius!; #YOLT
You know why that's so if you know about Don Draper's true identity.
Title sequence of "You Only Live Twice" with Nancy Sinatra singing title song.
The iconic song was composed by John Barry and Leslie Bricusse.
Earlier in the episode in what is now 1967, Don Draper goes to a Manhattan movie theater to see a matinee performance of the the new 007 spoof, "Casino Royale," starring Peter Sellers, David Niven Orson Welles, Ursula Andress and Woody Allen.
On an island of millions, whom do you think Don finds already sitting there in the theater by her lonesome as the film's score is playing, when she ought to be in her office at her new job at another advertising agency working on the women's cigarette account she was just assigned?
Yes, none other than Don Draper protégé Peggy Olson.
Casino Royale (1967) - opening credits. Music composed by Burt Bachrach, performed by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass.
That film is also known for the Oscar Best Song-nominee, The Look of Love by Burt Bachrach and Hal David, sung by Dusty Springfield in the film.
It lost to Talk to the Animals from Doctor Dolittle, which was composed by -wait for it-
You Only Live Twice co-composer Leslie Bricusse
