Windmills

Posted by shanoah on July 7, 2009

You know, sometimes everything just seems perfect to make a good followup post, and everything falls into place.

Other times, everything falls into place for a good post… but it has absolutely no relation to the previous post.

This is one of the latter. Not related to POS’s Goodbye, at all, unfortunately.

It is a song named Windmills of the Mind, written for the film The Thomas Crown Affair, and sung by Noel Harrison. And subsequently covered by lots of other people. This however, is the original. I like the whirling imagery.

The Muppets, however, decided to do their own entertaining take on the song. It’s faithful to the original idea in its own twisted way. ^_^

Actually, this song is very popular as an instrumental as well. Usually it sounds like a classical piece. Peter Nero decided to treat it as electronica, instead, though. It works. It definitely works.
