Words That Jangle In Your Head

Steve McQueen music part 2, this time from The Thomas Crown Affair film (1968) Noel Harrison’s Windmills Of Your Mind, with it’s circling chord sequence and unforgetable lyrics. When we were kids we had a dansette in our bedroom and my Mum gave us an album of cover versions of 60s hits (the kind of Top Of The Pops albums that have been featured at Planet Mondo recently, with scantily clad girls on the cover). This song was on it, and it’s kind of been stuck in my head ever since, thirty odd years ago.

What was that? Just a Proustian rush mate, get over it.

  1. Terrific song. The versions by composer Michel Legrand (in French) and of course Dusty Springfield are especially lovely.

  2. I could always Imagine this era Bowie giving it a go too
