Featured Unknown/Underrated Song: "The Windmills of Your Mind"

Dusty Springfield was one of the top performers of the 1960's and is one of the Top 100 Female Artists of the Rock Era*.  She gave us great songs like "I Only Want To Be with You", 'You Don't Have To Say You Love Me", "Wishin' and Hopin'", "Son of a Preacher Man" and "The Look of Love".

Even though this song was recognized by winning an Oscar as the Best Original Song (in the original "The Thomas Crown Affair" starring Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway) , the movie version featured Noel Harrison and thus Springfield's remake deserves special mention in the Unknown/Underrated Feature because it only reached #31.

Sting also did a wonderful remake of the song that was used in the classic remake of "The Thomas Crown Affair" starring Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo.
