He Hit Me (And It Felt Like A Kiss)
by Stan Faryna
Fans of Mad Men will know the song by The Crystals, He Hit Me. It punctuates a recent Mad Men episode about rape, serial killing, abuse, and indifference. The song also reminds me of what happened in Tunisia a few days ago when Tunisian protesters were beaten down – not to mention Rima Dali, a Syrian activist.
You’ll find the song lyrics below and then some of you will bounce. Because I think that’s all I’m going to write about the song written by Goffin and King. Or the TV series, Mad Men, created by Matthew Weiner.
