Round like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel Like a snowball down a mountain, or a carnival balloon Like a carousel that's turning running rings around the moon Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind!
Like a tunnel that you follow to a tunnel of its own Down a hollow to a cavern where the sun has never shone Like a door that keeps revolving in a half forgotten dream Or the ripples from a pebble someone tosses in a stream Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space Like the circles that you find in the windmills of your mind!
Keys that jingle in your pocket, words that jangle in your head Why did summer go so quickly, was it something that you said? Lovers walking along a shore and leave their footprints in the sand Is the sound of distant drumming just the fingers of your hand? Pictures hanging in a hallway and the fragment of a song Half remembered names and faces, but to whom do they belong? When you knew that it was over you were suddenly aware That the autumn leaves were turning to the color of her hair! Like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel As the images unwind, like the circles that you find In the windmills of your mind!

Dorothy from Kansas, IlMy memory must be very rusty because I remembered this song playing over the titles at the end of this movie. But I saw a version last night, on Starz I think - but I tuned in after the glider scene - and never heard a note of this melody! In fact, the music was awful! Was the glider scene the only place this song played in the entire feature?
Oscar from Lima, PeruThe French version of the lyrics is somewhat different, even the title changes "mind" for "heart"
Tony from Palermo, ItalyI am a singer-entertainer, I have heard this song before, but never really listened to the words, this morning I heard it on the radio sung by Dusty Springfield, what a magnificent job she did,I have decided to record it.
Beth from Winchester Bay, OrA recording of Windmills by Sting is played in the credits of the Pierce Brosnan version of The Thomas Crown Affair.
[euchrid] from Glastonbury, EnglandEdward Woodward also recorded a rather disturbing version of this song on his 1972 album 'The Edward Woodward Album' (now sadly very hard to find, but comparble, in places, to William Shatner's 'musical' work from the same period).
Dave from London, EnglandAlison Moyet has also recorded this song on her album "Voices". It is very mellow, quite soft-jazzy and being that Alison Moyet has quite a low, husky voice means that like "Only You" from her days with Yazoo, I can sing this song in the same pitch as her;op
Tom from Washington, DcDusty Springfield charted with this in 1969. It was featured on her classic pop album "Dusty In Memphis".
Garry from Anchorage, AkIn the 70's Harrison fled Hollywood following his stint as Mark Slate on The Girl From U.N.C.L.E. He went to Nova Scotia, grew a bushy beard, and built a house with no electricity. The wood stove caused it to burn to the ground and he rebuilt it. He now lives in Los Angeles and is a writer.
Garry from Anchorage, AkNoel Harrison hosted the TV show Hullabaloo. He had a parking space at MGM next to Natalie Wood. He toured for a while with The Beach Boys and Sonny and Cher. Those must have been great years.
Garry from Anchorage, AkJose Feliciano sang the song at the Academy Award show because Harrison was busy making a movie and the director would not let him fly to Hollywood to sing it.
Michael from Villereau, FranceNoel harrison's best song for me was "A Young Girl" - originally sung (in French) by Edith Piaf "Une Enfant"
