'Mad Men' Season 5 Episode 507 'At the Codfish Ball': Summer in the city
On last night's #MadMen, Glen asks Sally if she's bought "The Spoonful" album yet. He's talking about The Lovin' Spoonful. By August 1966, the band had reached no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with their awesome-sauce song, "Summer in the City," which makes reference to the "back of my neck feeling dirty and gritty."
