Why does everyone know it's Windy?

Ruthann Friedman  was born in the Bronx in 1944. Here is what she said about this song.
In 1967, thanks to his (Van Dyke Parks) kindness, I was living in a spare room in David Crosby's home in Beverly Glenn Canyon. It was while living there that I wrote the song Windy. The Association recorded it and my life changed forever. The success of that simple tune gave me the freedom to do whatever I wanted.

Here is the Association back in the day.


At Ravinia, 1967....The harmony-not so easy- when it's live.
