    I was at the Legrand/Dessay concert at Wiener Konzerthaus in December 2013 – an unforgettable celebration especially when they sang this duet. Perfection.

  • Greg Bottini says:

    I love much of Legrand’s music (“The Umbrellas of Cherbourg” is marvelous), and his piano playing is excellent (he even did a jazz trio album with, if I’m not mistaken, Ray Brown and Shelly Manne), but this horrible hippy-dippy song is just that – horrible – and it was written for a two-thumbs-down movie, “The Thomas Crown Affair”, easily the worst of Steve McQueen’s starring vehicles.
    The second song is lovely as instrumental music, but since I do not speak French, I can’t really form an opinion about it as a song.
    But “Windmills Of Your Mind”? I know the English lyrics. And it’s merde.

    2 thumbs up!

    A clip from Jacques Demy’s and Legrand’s Les Damoiselles de Rochefort would really make us smile.

    Oops, “Demoiselles”!
