Both are grammatical and idiomatic. The following URL belongs to a Web page that discusses which adjectives take an "-er" comparative, which take "more" and which can take either one. "Windy" would be an example of the last group of adjectives. (The "-est" superlatives, superlatives using "most," and superlatives which can be formed with either are also discussed.)

Of course PIPs thought that song was about someone named (= BrE "called") Wendy.

I repeat: Erk, this can't be!

It was written (as a poem) by a 17 year old girl.

Of course. It's about Wendy Moon, who hits your eye with a big pizza pie. And that's a whole lot better than being slapped in the face with a wet eel.

Windy (2:54) - Contrary to what the Greatest Hits
disc's liner notes say, Ruthann Friedman (now
Carlisle) was not a fan but a friend of the group, and she was 22 instead of 19 at the time she wrote this song.

A little known folk singer named Ruthann Friedman
had written a song about her old man, 'Windy', and his free wheeling life style. She played the song
one night for the Association and they knew they had found another hit record.
I don't find a great deal on the career of Ruthann Friedman, but she was one of the acts at the Big Sur Festival of 1969, and recorded an album called "Constant Companion."
