AMC Paid $250,000 to Use a Beatles Song on This Week’s ‘Mad Men’…Here’s a Montage of Other Beatles Songs Hollywood Has Used

In case you missed it, this week’s episode of “Mad Men” featured the BEATLES song “Tomorrow Never Knows”.  And it cost AMC $250,000 to use it.  (Which is insane, considering the fact that it’s not even a POPULAR Beatles song.)

It’s pretty crazy for a TV show to spend that kind of money, but the website Jest.com put together a montage of MOVIES that have used Beatles songs. It’s still not that common because the royalties are so expensive, but the montage includes:

“Happiness Is a Warm Gun” in Michael Moore’s “Bowling for Columbine”, “Twist and Shout” in the parade scene of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, “The Fool on the Hill” in “Dinner for Schmucks”, and about a dozen more.

(WARNING: Some of the clips include profanity, including the F-word.)
