Here’s David Carbonara’s song Babylon in episode 6 from season 1 of Mad Men, which was also named “Babylon” and was originally aired on August 23rd, 2007. Adapted from Don McLean’s version and based on Psalm 137 (more here).

It was the first on-camera song that I produced for the series Mad Men, and I got a cameo appearance to boot😎


By the waters
The waters
Of Babylon
We lay down and wept
And wept
For thee Zion
We remember
Thee remember
Thee remember
Thee Zion
