"Windy" is a pop music song written by Ruthann Friedman and recorded by The Association. Released in 1967, the song reached number one 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 number forty-four. "Windy" was The Association's second U.S. number-one, following "Cherish" in 1966. During the recording session the Association members, sure that they were in the middle of recording a hit, called the song writer in to sing on the fade at the end. She can be heard singing a blues harmony as the song fades out. Session musician, Hal Blaine was brought in to play drums. Thanks for listening.
