“Fly Me to the Moon:” A Collaboration of George Strait and Frank Sinatra

Everybody loves Frank Sinatra. His swooning voice will make you feel like you are floating in heaven. Yes, that’s exactly how it feels like every time Sinatra sings a song. One of his best-known songs that people love is “Fly Me to the Moon.” It was written by Bart Howard in 1954, and first recorded by Kaye Ballard. However, many recognize the song to be Frank Sinatra’s.

We are here not only to listen to Sinatra’s version of “Fly Me to the Moon,” but also to listen to a collaboration between George Strait and Frank Sinatra. You’ll not regret taking the time to listen to this song.

Frank Sinatra’s Album Duets

Sinatra returned to the studio to record songs for his new album in 1993. Duets was only Sinatra’s album to receive three times platinum certification. In his first album, he collaborated with younger artists. However, the twist was that the recording of Sinatra and other artists didn’t happen at once. Sinatra recorded his part of each song alone. The guest artists in his album also did the same thing. Therefore, the duet was more of an electronically modified recording.

Duets II

Duets II was Sinatra’s last album to be released in his career. Just like the first album, Sinatra recorded his part alone, and then his voice was laid over to the guest artists in his album. In his final album, Sinatra worked with country artists Linda Ronstadt, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffet, and more. But there is one recording that didn’t make it to the album. It was his collaboration with George Strait.

Yes, guys, you read that correctly. George Strait and Frank Sinatra singing together is a dream.

Here is their version of “Fly Me to the Moon.”

“Fly Me to the Moon” Included in Strait Out of the Box Album

Since the song didn’t make it to Sinatra’s last album, which is disappointing, Strait included his version of “Fly Me to the Moon” on his box set album Strait Out of the Box. It was a wonderful recording, and his album was also incredible. Therefore, it remained to be the best-selling box set in 2006. Strait Out of the Box entered the Billboard Country Albums chart at number nine, and Billboard 200 at number forty-three. You must get your hands on Strait’s album and find out how amazing he is.
