In 69, Noel Harrison, on Reprise,

had a UK No.8 with ‘Windmills Of You Mind’.

This single staying in the UK charts for 14 weeks,

is still so easy, in the memory, to find.

 

Written for The Thomas Crown Affair,

and known throughout the land,

winning a first Oscar in 69

for french composer Michel Legrand. 

 

His second Oscar followed for the film score –

Summer of 42, released in 71 .

And Yentl, starring Barbra Streisand,

released in 83, saw a third Oscar won.

 

With involvement in over 100 albums,

and over 200 film and TV production scores to his name –

Thank you for sharing your brilliance, Michel Legrand –

A composer at the very top of his game.

 

RIP    

Noel Harrison         1934 – 2013
