‘The Windmills of Your Mind’ (in Spanish: The mills of your thought) is a song composed by the French musician Michel Legrand. The English lyrics were written by Alan and Marilyn Bergman, while the French lyrics were composed by Eddy Marnay (‘Les moulins de mon cœur’).
A French version, titled Les Moulins de mon coeur, was written to lyrics by Eddy Marnay and sung by Michel Legrand himself in 1969.
The song was originally recorded in English by British singer Noel Harrison in 1968 and included in the Norman Jewison-directed film The Thomas Crown Affair of the same year. The first two melodic lines were taken from the second movement of Mozart’s Symphony for Violin, Viola and Orchestra.
The song peaked at number 8 on the UK Singles Chart, and was awarded the Academy Award for Best Original Song of 1968.
The song has been covered by numerous artists, both in English and French and in other languages, including Dusty Springfield: his version was ranked No. 31 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 3 on the Billboard Magazine Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks in 1969.
