Fly Me To The Moon free piano sheet music by Frank Sinatra

About the song

"Fly Me to the Moon" is the title of a song originally written by Bart Howard in 1954.

It was recorded that same year by Kaye Ballard and released in April.

The label that initially released the song was Decca Records. This traditional pop and bossa nova song was covered intensely by other musicians around the world. It has turned into a standard for the jazz genre. In 1964, Frank Sinatra recorded his own version of the song, which was related to the Moon missions from the Apollo stations.

The Songwriters Hall of Fame from the United States of America awarded "Fly Me to the Moon" with the "Towering Song" award. This ceremony took place in 1999 and the award itself is given to songs that have inspired the cultural categories of music along the years.

The version from Kaye Bellard was the first one intended for commerce. The song got originally titled "In Other Words".

It has been called a loving song, filled with feelings at that time, by the Billboard magazine. After this initial version, several others have begun to appear. Be it jazz or cabaret renditions, included on other artists’ LPs, EPs, or even albums, "Fly Me to the Moon" became very popular. We can remember the versions of the likes of Chris Connor, Portia Nelson, Johnny Mathis and Nancy Wilson.

The most successful version in that period of time was the one recorded by Eydie Gorme. In 1958, her version of "Fly Me to the Moon" was included on her album titled "Eydie In Love". This version reached rank number 20 on the Cashbox Album Charts and even became a nominee for a Grammy Award.

The popularity of the song has grown since 1960, when Peggy Lee’s version was played on "The Ed Sullivan Show", on live television. The official name change of "In Other Words" to "Fly Me to the Moon" was decided in 1963, thanks to Peggy Lee. In the 60s period, other artists have covered the song, such as Nat King Cole, Brenda Lee or Sarah Vaughan.

Frank Sinatra has recorded his own version of the song and it got included in his album. The 1964 album was called "It Might as Well Be Swing" and it featured Count Basie. The music arranger for the album was Quincy Jones.

great presentation--got the 4ths down, but trouble with the timing/ or drive of the tune --I expect its just a matter of practice, however a slow motion of your hands would be helpful
