Song of the Day: Fly Me To The Moon

The song of the day for Saturday, June 15, 2013 is “Fly Me To The Moon.”

About This Song

“Fly Me To The Moon” was written in 1954 by Bart Howard and it was a huge hit for him. There are other people that have sung this song, but as far as I am concerned, Tony Bennett owns this song and has owned it since the first moment he sang it.

We have written about this song before: Tony Bennett and the Moon and an early article (now slightly outdated) Fly Me To The Moon. Yes, I really love this song.

Originally, the song was called “In Other Words,” but so many people called it “Fly Me To The Moon” that the name was officially changed.

About This Version

Today’s version is from the 1994 MTV Unplugged concert.

“Fly Me To the Moon,” as well as the entire MTV Unplugged album, is available from iTunes.
