The Songs I Love ~ original album circa 1963

Vinyl Version| Album notes | Album Sessions |

 
Notes: ~ When Bart Howard wrote this pretty song in 1954, he titled it 'In Other Words'. And that's the way cafe singer Felicia Sanders sang it when she introduced it. But over the years, as more and more people heard the song, they began to ask for it by the first few words of the refrain. ( The phrase 'In other words' is sung after the first two couplets. ) Before long the song was referred to as 'Fly Me to the Moon'. Finally, the publishers bowed to the public and changed the title officially. And almost immediately, pianist Joe Harnell had a million-selling record of the song . . . an instrumental version!
