The end credits of Space Cowboys




WARNING  slight spoiler-----
if you havent seen Space Cowboys-----




The end song as the camera swoops over the surface of the moon and settles on the astronaut and I am pretty sure its Frank Sinatra singing "Fly me to the Moon" and then just as we get that very cool close up of the helmet and the drums beat out the final cords just as
Produced and Directed by
Clint Eastwood
appears....

whats the name of that song and isnt that Frank Sinatra singing it?

I want to go to itunes to buy it for my collection but I cant see it- I thought for sure it would be called Fly me to the Moon but I cant find it--

a little help please! THANKS!!

It is Frank Sinatra, and it is "Fly Me to the Moon". On the Space Cowboys soundtrack, it's listed as:

Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words)/Frank Sinatra & Count Basie

One more detail: The song is by Bart Howard (1915-2004). He originally called it "In Other Words."

The Frank Sinatra/Count Basie version was recorded in 1964.
