You Go to My Head

“Beauty is worse than wine; it intoxicates both the holder and the beholder.”

- Aldous Huxley
(26 July 1894 - 22 Nov 1963)

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!)

BONUS #1 - - You Go to My Head - Frank Sinatra, 1946

BONUS #2 - - You Go to My Head - Frank Sinatra, 1960 


"You Go to My Head" is a 1938 popular song composed by J. Fred Coots with lyrics by Haven Gillespie.[1] Numerous versions of the song have been recorded, and it has since become a pop & jazz standard.

The song was recorded in 1938 by Teddy Wilson with a vocal by Nan Wynn. The same year it was recorded by Billie Holiday[2]

On 23 April 1961, Judy Garland performed the song at the Judy at Carnegie Hall concert.

       From My Cousin, Cheryl White Wilson (John Marshall HS - '64) of VA - 11/12/12:

  We came upon this remembrance on the Yale campus while visiting our son Tim (who is there working on his master's degree).

   OH, WOW! What a beautiful tribute! Thanks so much, Cheryl!


        From My #2 Son, Brent Harty (Hillsboro HS, IL - '90) of TX - 11/12/12, 1:23 AM:

A very respectful Veterans Day to you, Dad! Thanks for setting the example of duty for me and continuing the family heritage of service as passes down through the generations of our family to this day. Of course, the same exact salutation goes to you too, Mom!

   Thank you so much, Brent! I'd second what you said about your father, but I can't recall anything I did along those lines except feed you a steady diet of WWII movies and documentaries!

     From Donnie Satisky ('56) of Northern VA - 11/13/12, 12:34 AM:


I have no idea how your have the energy to do this, but I have great admiration for you keeping in touch with so many. I will be 74 later this month (class of 1956) and have gone to all reunions except when I was in the army for the 10th. I lived in Oregon for 32 years, and now live in Leesburg, VA at Leisure World.

Today we here had a great veterans day with the West Point Glee Club from Northern Virginia, all former officers, singing to our enjoyment, and all of us veterans were honored. it is a great place to live, and we have vets from WW2, Korea, Vietnam, and those like me who were in the infantry between the wars. I was a commanding officer of an infantry training company in the army, at Ft. Ord, California from 1960 to 63, and was a trained paratrooper, i.e. 12 jumps, but lucked out, never went to war., but many here did, and all are honored today.

Keep up your good work.

My best friend in the Virginia neighborhood is my 1st grade buddy,
  Bruce Sims, who remains a friend from 1944 onward. He still has red hair, believe or not.

My dad, born in Newport News in 1907 and died there in 1954, arranged for me to have lunch in the 1st grade with Mrs. Sims, rather than walk the mile back and forth, or just carry a sandwich. Bruce's house was right across 25th Street from the Woodrow Wilson School, an easy walk. Anyway Bruce was the teacher's pet.  Her name was Miss Bush, and Bruce was the smartest kid in the class, and most loved by Miss Bush, and a lady who used to drive up in a early1920-s auto to lecture us about birds. I think Bruce was also her favorite, and maybe he can remember her name. Anyway, let me know if he responds to this portrayal of him as I remember him from those those days many years ago.

   Thanks so much for everything - especially your charming note, Donnie! Sometimes our earliest memories are the best!

    From Glenn Dye ('60) of TX - 11/12/12 - "Can you locate any of your "early years" vehicles?":
Good look at the past.

   Oh, WOW! I found       my daddy's (the late Robert Buckley - John Marshall HS - '25) (19 Oct 1907 - 25 Apr 1960) beautiful 1948 Pontiac right away!

   Thanks, Glenn! These are definitely drool worthy!

From - 11/12/12:
Little Johnny watched, fascinated, as his mother smoothed cold cream on her face. "Why do you do that, Mommy?" he asked.

"To make myself beautiful," said his mother, who then began removing the cream with a tissue.

"What's the matter?" asked Little Johnny. "Giving up?"

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

Recorded by Frank Sinatra, 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
