    Loved the theme tune, it will be a travesty if this song is not re-released-can’t wait to buy the cd

  • Paul

    Its the first time I have heard it but I think it is very good, I think re-releasing it is a fantastic idea.

  • Reidycarol

    One of my favorite movies and my favorite movie ballad.

  • Nicholas Rhodes

    Hello, like my friend Carol Reidy in the United States, I have loved this song for many years and have “lived” with a makeshift recording of the title theme ( interrupted by the waves crashing on the rocks) which I have of course listened to hundreds of times. I especially loved the lyrics of the song and I seem to remember Mike telling me that it was Larry Adler who wrote them, but I may be wrong on this. Obviously, if Mike were to re-record and re-issue the song on a CD using today’s recording techniques, I’d be out to buy it like a shot. Objectively, though, the song is so beautiful that if it were released, all sorts of people who’d never heard of it before, would be sure to fall under its charm. Good luck with the re-release.

  • Kirrary

    A haunting title song for an extraordinary movie which goes much deeper under the surface than most! I love both

    • Nick Parkinson

      how very true, and we all love both!. It really does need to be released i think

  • Clinton

    A classic song, beautifuly sung, I must buy this movie on ebay right now!

  • Maureen

    Saw this film when it first came out and fell in love with the theme song. In all those years I’ve only seen it on TV twice. I’m so glad to have come across this website. Yes, please allow Mike LeRoy to release the song for a new generation to enjoy!

  • Fay

    My favour film of all time I remember watching it as child and loved every minute of it and I still love it now. This film is a classic and the opening song is very very beautiful. No questions about it the song should be released. I have been searching for a long time to try and buy the soundtrack for the film, but not realising it has never been released.

  • Paul rawes

    A beautiful and plaintive song!

  • Porthos

     Bonsoir, je viens juste de découvrir ce film de Mckendrick qui vient de resortir à Paris. La rencontre a tout simplement été extraordinaire. Je l’ai revu 3 fois dans la même semaine. La chanson titre n’est pas sous-titrée en français, mais j’ai réussi avec mon pauvre anglais à en comprendre les paroles, au bout de la 3e vision. Je suis de tout coeur avec vous pour demander la sortie de cette chanson en disque !

  • Karen

    Beautiful song, beautiful voice. Every time I watch the film I wonder about this song so I’m really pleased to find the singer and this site. I played Laura in the film so of course it’s even more special to me!

  • Bryan

    Mike Le Roys opening theme song to this film is certainly right up here with the very best of all opening ballads in 20th Century cinema  – The soundtrack to this classic film [and of course the film itself ] should be re-released in all available formats without delay. Mike should also be allowed to re-record and re-sing this song – Amongst countless others all over the world.. we truly love quality soundtrack recordings and classic films such as this…  We fail to understand why this one is still being keeping it under lock and key.

  • guest

    Yes, I concur.  Please release Mike singing this song.  It is haunting and moving.  It would undoubtedly sell DVDs of the movie for which it was made.

  • Yogamotion

    I too have always loved this song and film since i was a little boy.I remember watching it on tv in the early 1970’s,and i learned to play it on the guitar.Its been with me ever since.Its a beautiful melody and vocal.Over the years ive hoped they’d release the film soundtrack with this song on,but so far it hasnt happend.Please rectify this asap!!!

  • Sweetcollegekid

    beautiful song redo it please

  • Tom

    Always loved the movie and it’s theme. I was looking for the theme on Google and found this site. Great song,and singer, and it should be released.

  • Karen

    This has always been one of my favorite theme songs. It was perfect for the movie. I hope it does get released soon.

  • Brad

    I was 11 years old when I saw the movie, and I loved the song.

  • carolriso

    When I finally found this song on youtube, I had tears in my eyes.  I’ve carried the melody and some of the lyrics in my head for 47 years, and never thought I’d ever hear it again.  Lovely and haunting, it’s simply sublime.

    • Mikeleroy

      What a great comment carol   –   thanks
      Mike Leroy 

  • Tom Gelsthorpe

    Simply echoing many of the comments below — a poignant song, perfect for the intro and conclusion of this excellent movie.  Although fate is untidy, the movie tidily shows how love can find a man, rearrange his priorities, yet lead to unexpected sorrows anyway.  Like Carol, the song stayed in my head after seeing the movie once all those years ago.  I’m happy to see that Mike’s life has worked out better than Zac & Chavez and there are people still around who remember Mike well.

      Thanks Tom for your kind words

      Yep – I’m still around and still singing
      But High Wind was special to me.


  • maureen

  • BH

    the king of cool 

  • GG

    Depply affecting song and beautifully sung. would love to have it in my collection to enjoy endlessly.

  • Proftjm

    Wistful, melancholy, and as stated before haunting.  Please release both the vocal and instrumental version from the soundtrack!  I have searched for the soundtrack for a very long time.  Why this has never been released is a mystery to me.  Here’s hoping it will be soon.

  • Mike Melvin

    I’ve loved this song since i first saw the movie in ’65 at age 13. Mike, I wish you the best of luck in this endeavour, but, since Larry Adler is the composer and the song doesn’t seem fully realized for a single, it deosn’t look good for a release. Your rendition of it is impeeccable, though, and we will never forget it.

    My best suggestion for everybody is to transfer the audio to music editing software and slice out the orchestration part. There seems to be a pause just long enough for the song to be discretely edited from the rest. Thank you so much Mike!

  • D’arcy

    absolutely beautiful song and the instrumental throughout the film was just so tender and liquid – HOPEFULLY, somebody will see that this will be more than well received if it were released – especially sung by an incredible singer. Thank you for sharing and best of luck with still trying to promote a possible single.

  • Jane Wilson

    Just watched the movie for the umpteenth time. Love the song!
