Happy Valentine! Bill Compton – You Go To My Head

The Billsbabes are always thinking of ways to show their love to our favorite vampire, Bill Compton in creative ways. Since Valentine’s Day is upon us, we thought it would be nice to give Bill Compton a valentine. Of course, this requires that we ask Stephen Moyer to pass it on to Bill for us, but we’re pretty sure he will comply and, by default he gets some lovin’, too!

The following video created by ThelLou, with some art direction from Lynnpd and Willkill4Bill, is our valentine to Bill Compton. The song you hear is “You Go To My Head” and is sung by the great Billie Holiday, To quote WillKill4Bill, “This song is so descriptive of how we feel for Bill that it could have been written for us, and after it was recorded by Billie Holiday, it should have been off limits for anyone else to record.

“You Go To My Head” is a 1938 popular song composed by J. Fred Coots with lyrics by Haven Gillespie. The song is highly regarded by jazz musicians and critics alike. Below are the lyrics:

You go to my head
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 can never be?

You go to my head
With smile that makes my temperature rise
Like a summer with a thousand Julys
You intoxicate my soul with your eyes
Tho I’m certain that this heart of mine
Hasn’t a ghost of a chance in this crazy romance,
You go to my head.

  1. Kudos to you, Willkill, Lou and Lynn, for this inspired creation. Billie Holiday’s fabulous vocals and the timeless “You Go To My Head” say it all. I sat in front of my computer, entranced by the movie unfolding there on my screen. So many of my favorite Bill scenes were woven into the video.

    Yes, darling Bill … you captivate us, mesmerize us, send your babes into orbit with your voice, your mannerisms, your smoldering vampire self.

    Wishing you a very Happy Valentine’s Day. Oh, and please share some of that extra special Billsbabe love with Stephen, your amazing alter ego.

    Hugs from Rowena.

  8. Ladies,Ladies,Ladies, you have done it again. Lynn, great idea, and Lou the story and orchestration is perfection. We babes are so lucky to have your talents. ♥

  10. <3 Perfect song <3 Yes, Bill Compton has gone to our collective heads!
    Fantastic job Lou, Lynn, and WK4B! You have made the perfect Valentine for our favorite gentleman vampire <3 BRAVA

  11. Thank you, thank you, thank you for this wonderful Valentine’s gift – not just for Bill but for all of us as well.
    Everything about it, from the music to the clips to the editing was just so sensual and sublime. After watching it, I felt like I wanted to light up a cigarette and I don’t even smoke. Three minutes of pure Bill inspired bliss.

    BTW, is it just me or have Lou’s other videos disappeared from youtube? I’m finding it harder than usual to function without watching them at least once a day. HELP!

  12. Love it Lou, Lynn and Willkill!!! Absolutely Fangtastic!! Stephen is the most alluring man I have ever seen and as Bill Compton he could literally glamour the pants off of any female who was lucky enough to get close enough to look into his eyes!
    You ladies did a wonderful job with this video……*SIGH* What a yummy man he is!!!

  13. Love it!! Thank you all for putting it together. It captured “Bill” perfectly.

    Happy Valentine’s Day Bill!

    P.S. Sorry it’s late. On vacation in Fort Myers Beach and the WiFi is not too strong here.

  14. Lou as always such talent! and Lynn and WillKill4Bill all three of your collaborative effort should have a category at the Oscars this year. And the Oscar goes to the Billsbabes……

    A big thank you for including so many of our favorite Valentines “fangy” moments. Love it!
