You Go To My Head

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.

  4. I've always loved this song. We have it on a Linda Ronstadt (sp?) album (with the Nelson Riddle band). Lovely.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
