Mad Men showrunner Matthew Weiner has always been a stickler for detail, but his latest bid for period accuracy is pretty stringent even by his own high standards.

Weiner is changing a song used in the upcoming fifth season premiere after critics who received early copies of the episode pointed out an apparent oversight: The track, Dusty Springfield’s 1967 tune “The Look of Love,” wasn’t released until six months after the episode takes place.

The writer-producer will use a different song instead. He sent this explanatory note to critics, which also doesn’t exactly hurt your relationship with the press:

Depending how much time is covered this season, maybe they can use the song in the fifth season finale instead?
