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,

   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!)

From Mark Pyrtle - 11/12/17 - "Fisherman's Wharf??":


I'm not an actual graduate of Newport News High. My family visited the area in the 70's and 80's when I was a child. I've been looking at videos and pictures online just to bring back the fond memories of summer vacations.

I came to this page researching Fisherman's Wharf restaurant. There were pictures on this site of the area where the restaurant once stood. When I was a child, I always remembered seeing this statue of Neptune as we exited the tunnel. The only statue I can find in Norfolk is at the Ocean View park I believe. I read online that there had been a statue near the old restaurant. Can anyone confirm that? I saw people reminiscing about the place on this site so I thought someone might know. Hopefully I'm not crazy and imagining the statue I saw.

I just wanted to satisfy my curiosity. Tough to go by my memories that are over 30 years old! I completely understand if this is an odd question. I just thought I'd give it a shot. I Thank you for your time.

   Certainly, Mark! I've turned the question over to some of our experts, and hope we'll have an answer for you soon!

   Anyone else want to weigh in on this?

   From Jimmy Hines ('64) of VA - 11/10/17:

The man charged into the jewelry shop, slammed his fists angrily on the showcase, removed a wristwatch from his pocket, and shook it under the nose of the owner.

“You said this watch would last me a lifetime,” he yelled.

“Yeah,” admitted the owner. “But you looked pretty sick the day you bought it.”

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
