  1. The Association sure did have some pretty good tunes. I really like the bass line in this one. And the melody is one that gets stuck in my head. I won’t be surprised if I start humming it out of nowhere at some point today.

    1. I think their music struck a chord (so to speak) with a lot of people. Their harmony was remarkable, they were all pretty accomplished musicians, and they picked good songs. They were popular in Chicago as well.

  2. I had never heard of this band or heard this song before, but the opening bass riff hooked me. Thanks for the introduction!

  3. My first date was with a Windy…I always associated with this song. They had some good songs like this one and Never My Love.

    1. I know exactly what you mean. a while back, there was a concert tour with The Association, The Turtles, The Grass Roots, and The Cowsills (at least, the members of those bands that are still alive, along with enough young musicians to bring them up to full strength), all of whom were from that late ’60’s period. You could probably throw The Monkees in with that group. There was a distinctive sound about them.

    1. They had a bunch of good ones: Besides “Windy” and “Cherish,” there was “Along Comes Mary,” “Never My Love,” “Enter The Young,” etc. etc. They don’t make songs like that anymore.

    1. It’s from 1967 or ’68, if that gives you any perspective. Plus, I’m not sure how popular The Association was in the rest of the world. They were huge here… Hoped you liked it!
