Song of the Day: 'I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing (In Perfect Harmony)' by the New Seekers


Final episodes of long-running series are rarely memorable, and the ones that are usually are recalled for angering the masses. (See: "Seinfeld," "The Sopranos.") But I can't say I was too displeased with last night's "Mad Men." Not everything was to my liking -- Betty's illness and Trudy's weakness, to name a couple -- but I welcomed Roger and Peggy's romantic good fortunes. And there hasn't been a final scene as memorable as Don's advertising (if not spiritual) rebirth since WJM realized it was a long road to Tipperary and Dick Loudon woke up in bed with Emily Hartley. Nicely done, Mr. Weiner.

Here's the "cover" that came out when I was in kindergarten.
