"You Go to My Head" as written by Teddy Randazzo and Bobby Weinstein....
You go to my head
And you linger like a haunting refrain
And I find you spinning round in my brain
Like the bubbles in a glass of champagne

You go to my head
Like a sip of sparkling burgundy brew
And I find the very mention of you
Like the kicker in a julep or two

The thrill of the thought that you might give a thought
To my plea, casts a spell over me
Still I say to myself get a hold of yourself
Can't you see that it never can be

You go to my head
With a smile that makes my temperature rise
Like a summer with a thousand July's
You intoxicate my soul with your eyes

Though I'm certain that this heart of mine
Hasn't a ghost of a chance in this crazy romance
You go to my head
You go to my head

Though I'm certain that this heart of mine
Hasn't a ghost of a chance in this crazy romance
You go to my head
You go to my head

    General CommentThis is my fave. Holiday song I think though I don't know many to begin with. Some people can make even heartache sound beautiful. Plus I just love how she says bubbles like "bubboos". . .her vocals are simple but enchanting

    General CommentI think this song is trying to explain how infatuation and lust work; she knows that it wont work out between her and whomever she's singing about, but she can't stop thinking about them anyway. They go right to her head

    General CommentI like Billie Holiday best when the optimism of the lyrics contrast movingly with the heartbreak of her voice. She makes sexual love feel like a narcotic need and she brings home its vulnerability. It's the awful yearning of her voice, and the vastness of her desire, and the implied impossibility of fulfilment that hurt your heart.
