SoCS — Fly Me To The Moon


This week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt from Linda G. Hill invites us to “use the phrase ‘in other words’ at least once in your post.”

I typically use that phrase when I feel that I haven’t explained something adequately. Or when I can tell that the person I’m talking with doesn’t quite understand what I’ve just said. So I’ll try to say it in a different way, starting out with “In other words….”

But as I was writing my response to Linda’s prompt, I unconsciously found myself humming the 1964 Frank Sinatra song (written by Bart Howard), “Fly Me To The Moon.”

At first I wasn’t sure why that song popped into my head, but then I started thinking about the lyrics and realized that the phrase “in other words” is sung over and over again throughout the song.

That’s when I decided, mid-stream of consciousness, so to speak, to post a video of Frank Sinatra’s rendition of “Fly Me To The Moon.”

    Funny. The moment you said that, I got the same song … I actually love that song. It was the final song in “Space Cowboys,” too.

    I had the same tune stuck in my head, when I saw the prompt.

      It’s a natural song for “In other words.”

    In other words, take my hand. In other words, hold me tight.

    I was listening to some crooner radio on NPR just last night. It’s incredible how much new music is coming out, all of it fantastic.

    Enjoyed the post, Fandango, as always.
