The Windmills of Your Mind was part of the soundtrack for
The Thomas Crown Affair, a movie released in 1968.
In 1969, the song was a Top 40 hit for Dusty Springfield.
Listen to it below. Pay particular attention to the pace of the song.
(Ice skaters were substituted for the image of Dusty Springfield to help
you stay with it for the full length of the song. Seriously, watching a
soloist sing for 3 min. 53 sec. is a special kind of tedious, don’t you think?)
