The song was recorded in 1938 by Teddy Wilson with a vocal by Nan Wynn. The same year it was recorded by Billie Holiday On 23 April 1961, Judy Garland performed the song at the Judy at Carnegie Hall concert.
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 casts 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.
