Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Oh, c'mon, you know how it is once Frank starts singing to me. Besides, I already had the matching graphics!
I'm giving you both of his recorded versions. Oh, sure, several other people recorded it as well, but seriously, it's all about Frank, right?
(The second one is much more beautiful than the first. How nice to improve with age!)

You Go To My Head
Words by Haven Gillespie (06 Feb 1888 - 14 Mar 1975)
Music by J. Fred Coots (02 May 1897 - 08 Apr 1985), 1938
1946 and 1960
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
Cast 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 Julys
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
