Personal Quote:

Bart Howard in 1988: "I've always said it took me 20 years to find out how to write a song in 20 minutes. The song ("Fly Me to the Moon") just fell out of me. One publisher wanted me to change the lyric to 'take me to the moon'. Had I done that I don't know where I'd be today.'

Trivia:

Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, 1999. See more »
