'Tomorrow Never Knows' on 'Mad Men'

A recent episode of 'Mad Men' featured the Beatles' recording of 'Tomorrow Never Knows'. A lot of is being made of this because it is really rare for an actual Beatles performance to be in a television show. It's rare for movies, too.

But apparently, I have a better memory than the head of Apple, Jeff Jones, who said it was the first time that a Beatle recording had been used in a TV show (other than appearances by the actual Beatles or their ABC cartoon show).

In 1968, 'The Prisoner' featured the Beatles' version of 'All You Need Is Love' in its final episode. There might be others that I can't remember...I'm guessing with the millions of hours of TV over the last 50 years, it is definitely possible.
