    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    “Zou Bisou Bisou” (also performed as “Zoo Be Zoo Be Zoo”) is a song performed by Jessica Paré as Megan Draper during the March 25, 2012 Mad Men’s season 5 premiere episode “A Little Kiss”. The morning after its on-air performance on AMC, the song was released as a music download and as a vinyl special edition. Paré’s on-air performance of the song was lip synced to a prior recording.

    “Zou Bisou Bisou” was recorded by various artists before Paré. The song was Gillian Hills’ first single in the summer of 1960 A French recording entitled “Zoo Be Zoo Be Zoo” was produced by George Martin and sung in English by Sophia Loren. It was written by Bill Shepard and Alan Tew. Although most sources associate the origins of the song with Hills, New York claims the songwriting credits make it more likely that Loren’s version was the original. Slate’s David Haglund notes that Hills’ version is the “best-known version”. The song’s origins stem from the Yé-yé movement with which an early version of the song was associated. The songs theme is variously described as a song about openly declaring love and the joy of kissing. Paré’s rendition was widely discussed in the mainstream media. Music downloads are available for versions of the song by Hills and Loren as well as Maya Casabianca, Bart & Baker and Gilles Dutey.

    Roughly translated from French to English “Zou Bisou Bisou” means “Oh! Kiss Kiss” or “Oh You Kiss Kiss”. The Hills version is described as “…typical in style of the international yé-yé movement”, which is much like the go-go music genre and was most popular in France, Spain and Quebec, Ms. Draper’s home. The movement’s name has phoenetic origins, stemming from the exclamation of “Yeah Yeah” in typical fashion during rock and roll music.
