Fly me to the moon

Fly me to the moon

Fly me to the moon 

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On a-Jupiter and Mars
In other words, hold my hand
In other words, baby, kiss me

Fill my heart with song
And let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you

Fill my heart with song
Let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, in other words
I love ... ...you

Composer of 'Fly Me To The Moon', 'Let Me Love You'  by Todd S. Jenkins
Composer and pianist Bart Howard, whose "Fly Me To the Moon (In Other Words)" was sent rocketing onto the charts by Peggy Lee and Frank Sinatra, died of complications of a stroke on February 23, 2004. He was 88 years old. Born Howard Joseph Gustafson, his career had a most unusual beginning. Howard became the pianist for a touring dance band at the age of 16, backing Siamese twins Daisy and Violet Hilton. In 1934 he went to Los Angeles, aspiring to become a film composer, but ended up as the accompanist for female impersonator Rae Bourbon. Three years later Howard ended up in New York City, working with comedian/impersonator Elizabeth Talbot-Martin. He was encouraged by none other than Cole Porter, who counseled Howard to learn to sing his songs himself so he could get a better feel for them.
 
In the Big Apple Howard made the acquaintance of cabaret singer Mabel Mercer, who began performing his song "If You Leave Paris" in her shows. In 1941 he put his career on hold to enter the Army, returning to New York cabaret life in 1945. Mercer hired Howard as her accompanist once more for her regular gig at Tony's West Side club, and in 1951 he became the M.C. and accompanist at the Blue Angel in Manhattan. The artists whom he backed there included young Johnny Mathis, Eartha Kitt, Dorothy Loudon, and Felicia Sanders, who was the first to perform the song Howard had entitled "In Other Words". Singer Portia Nelson became another devotee of Howard's music, recording Ralph Burns' arrangements on Let Me Love You: The Songs of Bart Howard in 1956.
 
"In Other Words" took off quickly. Nancy Wilson recorded Billy May's arrangement in 1959 on her Capitol Records debut, and the following year Howard's fate in the business was sealed by Peggy Lee, who performed the tune on the Ed Sullivan Show for millions of viewers. From then on the tune was billed as "Fly Me to the Moon (In Other Words)", and eventually the original title was all but forgotten. Frank Sinatra guaranteed the song's endurance when he waxed it in 1961 and kept it in his repertoire for the rest of his life. Peggy Lee's conductor, Joe Harnell, also recorded a very popular bossa nova version of the tune in 1962. Since then the song has been recorded well over 500 times.

Though several of Bart Howard's other songs achieved popularity ("Let Me Love You", "Don't Dream of Anybody But Me", "Man in the Looking Glass", "Would You Believe It?") he remained chiefly known for "Fly Me to the Moon". Howard had little problem with that, as the tune made him wealthy enough to cut back on his songwriting and playing. In the 1970s and 80s he performed on occasion at clubs like Jan Wallman's in the Village, and singer K.T. Sullivan followed Portia Nelson's lead in 1997 by recording the live album, In Other Words: The Songs of Bart Howard. In 1999 Bart Howard was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Howard is survived by Thomas Fowler, his companion of 58 years, and by his sister, Dorothy Lind of Burlington, Iowa.

    as is customary in Venezuelan elections. Mr. Chávez has


    Coach Factory Outlet


    won each of his previous elections by margins of 22 percent or more, but expectations rose on Sunday that the outcome


    Louis Vuitton Belts


    this time would be much closer. During the campaign,


    Coach Factory Outlet


    Mr. Chávez vowed that he would give the opposition an epic beating. But speaking to reporters after he cast his vote in Caracas, the president dismissed any


    Gucci Belts


    suggestion that he would refuse to acknowledge an opposition victory if the vote count ran against him. “You should not have any


    Coach Factory Outlet


    doubt that we will recognize the results, whatever they are,” Mr. Chávez told reporters at his polling place. “Whether it is a one-vote difference or


    Coach Factory Outlet


    three million votes, responsible political participants have to recognize the results.” Venezuela is a major oil


    Coach Factory Online


    supplier to the United States and was a longtime American ally, but during his tenure Mr. Chávez has steered his country away from Washington. He is close


    Coach Outlet Online


    to countries like Cuba and Iran, and has been a thorn in the side of the United States in


    Coach Outlet Online


    Latin America, leading a bloc critical of American policies. At home, Mr. Chávez has championed social programs that provide education, housing and subsidized


    Coach Online Outlet


    food to the poor, and he has sought to create a socialist economy


    Coach Factory Outlet Online


    , nationalizing many businesses. He has governed with autocratic reach, undercutting the independence of the country’


    Coach Outlet Online


    s legislature and courts. The president started the


    Coach Outlet Online


    race with a large lead in opinion polls. But Mr. Capriles ran a strong campaign, making inroads in poor areas that were fiercely loyal to Mr


    Coach Factory Outlet


    . Chávez, and in recent weeks his support appeared to surge. Mr. Capriles jabbed


    Hermes Belts


    away at


    Coach Outlet Online


    widespread corruption, government mismanagement and out-of-control violent crime. He called for Venezuelans to work together, a contrast to Mr. Chávez,


    Coach Factory Online


    who delights in demeaning and insulting his opponents. And Mr. Capriles promised to keep and improve Mr. Chávez’s signature social programs. Mr. Capriles has


    Coach Factory Outlet


    crisscrossed the country, keeping up a manic pace for months. Mr. Chávez, who has been battling cancer, sometimes went two or three days without a campaign appearance. In Cumaná, a city in the northeast, broken voting machines delayed voting for hours at a polling place


    Hermes Belts


    at the National Open University. Finally, at around 1 p.m., the authorities began allowing voters to use paper ballots instead. “I’d rather wait six hours in line than endure six years more of this Chávez government,” said Antonio de la Rosa, 63, who had been at the polling station since 6:30 a.m. In the Catia neighborhood


    Coach Factory Online


    of the capital, María Elena Severine, 59, a cleaning woman for a bank, said that Mr. Chávez was still as fresh a candidate as when he first ran in 1998. “I like my president,” she said. “He is the revolution. He is change.”
