‘You Go to My Head’ – Lena Horne

Singer Lena Horne died today. aged 92. 

Here she is (above) singing ‘You Go to My Head’ with Billy Strayhorn on piano—her favourite accompanist because, it was said, he “cushioned Horne’s eggshell voice with gentle support.” 

Together they perform one of their favourite songs, celebrating “drunken delirium as a metaphor for love.”
