I heard this song at Indiana University in Bloomington when they first sang it. It was, for then, the subtle meaning of what she was and did. In the Midwest this was an outrage for such innocent times. Fond memories in many ways. Was not as lucky as they were. In Palm Springs, CA, only wind I get is natures and patio furniture can get blown away too.

This song is about free love, a friend, drugs, or prostitution to me. One of the catchiest songs I have ever heard. No, folks, I did not first hear it on Breaking Bad. I heard it on the radio as a small child.

I took the meaning of the song about the wind and weather related conditions too, but can see the drug relation as well. Prefer the wind though as it is more calming of the version to me and realistic in my life. I can also see the meaning to be a beautiful innocent woman exploring life.

I always assumed it was about a girl with that name but looking at the lyrics it appears to be talking about the wind as if it had a personality. Very creative.

I heard that windy is about a girl who went out with one of the association guys and her name is Wanda.

According to one of the founding members of the Association (who did not write the song), the song was about a friend of the author (Ruthann Friedmann) who was a meth addict and had served time in prison. While there is at least one article where Friedmann contends the character in the song is purely fictional, the Association member stands by his claim and explains Friedmann told him the meaning back when the band recorded it.

When I heard the song Windy in 1967, I changed the hit by mentally thinking of my 4th cousin. Her name was Wendie. Will not quote last names. I had a great crush on her in my tail end of my teens. I tried to get the LP. Could not find. To this day, in 2013, I still like this Hit Song. I still like The Association. I also like the song Cherish.
