      ["Darling Say You Love Me" by The Ramblers (Don dances with one of the hitchhikers)]

      This song plays when Peggy and Ted meet in a restaurant in episode 11 of season 5. When don dances with the hitchhiker in season 3, episode 7, the song playing is "Please Come On to Me" by The Clovers.

      Hi Charlie,

      In Episode 1, not only does the show end with Sally's Story, but it also opens with "Betty Home and Sally's Story" from the "On the Rocks" CD that has 23 songs from Carbonara. Also, after Pete gets his promotion from Lane, the song playing while he prematurely celebrates is "Lane's Exit", another Carbonara song from the "Night Cap" CD.

      Hope all is well with you.

      Joe

      @Christopher Smith thanks for the input, I think that a lot of the songs are created and performed by David Carbonara and others specifically for the show therefore they probably combine tunes and make up their own versions, at the following link you can hear a track called "Charleston" by Paul Reeves, https://soundcloud.com/paul-reeves-music/charlesto... I believe its an exact match for the song playing while pete and trudy dance, also i'll add everybody loves my baby to the list, cheers

      Season 3, Episode 3, the song identified as "The Charleston" most definitely is not that song, though it is the dance rhythm called the Charleston. The chord progression is not the same after the first two chords. It appears to be a compilation of at least two different tunes, and we never hear the melody. The A section (heard 3 or 4 times, which is improper form) is the same chord progression as "Five Foot Two", so it may very well be the improvised solo section from a recording of that song that was spliced together. The B section (in minor) appears to be "Everybody Loves My Baby" but again, only an improvised lead instrument without any melody.

      Or, the whole thing might be an original piece by the series composer, based on those chord progressions.
