Fly Me to the Moon
Fly Me to the Moon is a popular standard song written by Bart Howard in 1954. It was titled originally “In Other Words”, and was introduced by Felicia Sanders in cabarets. The song became known popularly as “Fly Me to the Moon” from its first line, and after a few years the publishers changed the title to that officially.
Widely associated with Frank Sinatra but NOT written by Sinatra.
Learning the Song
Basically in the key of C Major and its relative minor key, Am .
The IV chord in the C major part is approached using the Secondary Dominant V of IV or C7 to Fmaj7. This is a very common harmonic movement and well worth learning as it shows up a lot in the standard jazz repertoire.
NOTE: Unlike most of the versions on-line, the chords for my arrangement use all 4-part, a.k.a, "jazz" chords. It sounds a lot better with these than the typical uke group versions. Up Your Game! Bring your musicianship up — NOT bring the song down.
