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.

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Gay marriage was all but legalized in Maryland when the Legislature gave its final OK on Thursday to the law that is awaiting the expected signature of the governor. The state Senate voted 25-22 for the law. The vote comes less than a week after the House of Delegates barely passed the measure.hermes birkin 35 Maryland will become the eighth state to allow gay marriage when Gov. Martin O'Malley -- who sponsored the bill -- signs the legislation.hermes birkin 30 Opponents, though, have vowed to bring the measure to referendum in November. They will need to gather at least 55,726 valid signatures of Maryland voters to put it on the ballot and can begin collecting names now that the bill has passed both chambers. hermes birkin 40 Senators rejected some amendments to the legislation Thursday. Proponents warned that amending the bill could kill it because gathering enough support for altered legislation in the House would be difficult.hermes birkin black Last year senators passed a similar measure by 25-21, but the bill died in the House after delegates rescinded their initial support citing concerns that it could violate religious liberties of churches and business owners who do not support same-sex unions

    The menus in these programs are completely Office 2010 unusable. Microsoft won't Microsoft Office 2010 professional admit they blew it, but instead want Microsoft Office 2007 us all to believe the Office 2007 menus are "more intuitive". I've been researching Microsoft Outlook 2010 the issue, and evidently a company has software that makes the menus in Office Microsoft Office 2010 2007 look like Office Office 2010 download 2003. One of the most painful experiences I have every had to load.  Finally did custom install with nearly all features turned off. Boy that was not in the book. I know it takes time to get use to Microsoft Office 2010 professional something new, but things that should Office 2010 professional be right up front have became a game of Microsoft Outlook hunt and peck or research. Some I have just given up on Outlook 2010 and went back to 2003.
