  1. Windy

    "Windy" is a pop music song written by Ruthann Friedman and recorded by The Association. Released in 1967, the song reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in July of that year. Later in 1967, an instrumental version by jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery became his biggest Hot 100 hit when it peaked at #44. "Windy" was The Association's second U.S. number-one, following "Cherish" in 1966. According to rumor, the original lyrics by Ruthann Friedman were about a man and The Association changed them to be about a woman. "There are many explanations of who Windy actually was in Ruthann's life. She would have you know, she being me, Ruthann Friedman, that none of them are true. Windy was indeed a female and purely a fictitious character who popped into my head one fine day in 1967... During the recording session the Association members, sure that they were in the middle of recording a hit, called the song writer, me again, in to sing on the fade at the end. I can be heard singing a blues harmony as the song fades out..." Session musician Hal Blaine was brought in to play drums.

  1. Yas Links:

    I love Yas Links for the fantastic views and the variety of challenges it presents, each hole is different and all are memorable, but the final stretch from 15 to 18 embeds itself in the memory forever.
