“Cool, Cool, Considerate Men” – 1776

Music and Lyrics: Sherman Edwards

A musical about signing the U.S. Declaration of Independence may not sound cool, but it involves a lot of cool, cool, considerate men, such as founding fathers Thomas Jefferson and John Dickinson, the latter of whom performs this minuet.  Okay, they were probably about as cool and considerate as the chain-smoking, sexist advertising execs from TV series Mad Men which premiered on this day in 2007.  Despite the human failings of the characters, you’re going to have a good time with either critically-acclaimed show.
