Dusty Springfield • Windmills of Your Mind

This morning, I am not exactly sure why this song popped into my head, but it did, so I went with it. I am talking about "The Windmills of Your Mind", with music by French composer Michel Legrand and English lyrics written by Americans Alan Bergman and Marilyn Bergman. The song was used as the theme for the 1968 film, 'The Thomas Crown Affair'. Noel Harrison recorded the song for the movie soundtrack, and has a hit in the UK with it. The brilliant Dusty Springfield also recorded the song, and had a hit with it, having the song make it to #31 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #3 on the Adult Contemporary chart. The song has such a lovely melody, and when sung correctly, such a wonderful flow. And I have to say, Dusty always knew how to sing a song! Enjoy!

The song can be found of Springfield's acclaimed album 'Dusty in Memphis'. You can find it on iTunes and Amazon. Have a great weekend!
