A few months ago, when I blogged about Stacey Kent for days and days, I included the following:
The song playing is the Haven Gillespie/J. Fred Coots song, You Go To My Head, which has one of the best lyrics ever:
You go to my head
with a smile that makes my temperature rise
like a summer with a thousand Julys
you intoxicate my soul with your eyes
I just love that, "a thousand Julys." What is better than July? The middle of summer, the peak of the flowers, no August, no fall in sight. Pure bliss. I do love all the seasons, but there is something about July that is very special.
Well, I just had to offer You Go To My Head again while we are still in July. It is such a beautiful love song. I hope you have a couple minutes to listen and let it find its way into your heart.
