Legrand is a prolific composer, having written over 200 film and television scores, in addition to many memorable songs. He is best known for his often haunting, jazz-tinged film music. His celebrated scores for the films of French New Wave director Jacques Demy, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964) and The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967), earned Legrand his first Academy Award nominations. For The Thomas Crown Affair (1968) and its title song, “The Windmills of Your Mind”, Legrand won his first Oscar.
“Watch What Happens” is the English-language version of the song “Recit de Cassard” from the 1964 film The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.
