"You Go to My Head" - Louis Armstrong & Oscar Peterson
In my animated version of this song…
A sweet old cloudy-eyed bulldog looks up at his old lady sitting on the park bench. He’s sprawled on the grass by the lake. The early summer breeze sways and bobs the birches and sends the tall cottonwoods shimmering. Willows are dipping their long hair in the water, disturbing the surface, sending off sparks of light.
There’s a picnic going on nearby, but the bulldog’s full and happy, sitting by his girl, her hand trailing down to scratch his head, up at the top, where he can never quite reach.
A puppy is playing in the water by the edge of the lake. Not a puppy, no, older. Just coming into his own. The bulldog remembers when… He watches the young dog play, splashing his piano keys.
The light’s like Sunday in the Park with George.
Man, this song’s pretty.
