Fly Me To The Moon

Julie London (music starts at 00:22. enjoy)

Diana Krall

Frank Sinatra

"Fly Me to the Moon" is a pop standard song written by Bart Howard in 1954.

When it was introduced to the cabaret circuit by Felicia Sanders, it was titled as "In Other Words" originally. However, the song soon became popularly known as "Fly Me to the Moon" from its first line. In the meantime, the song was firstly recorded by Kaye Ballard in the same year.

Later (in 1954), Johnny Mathis recorded the song, and this was the first time the title "Fly Me to the Moon" appeared on a record label.

Strangely, it took a few years for the publishers to change the title from "In Other Words" to "Fly Me to the Moon" officially.
