Fly Me To The Moon (∞ Climax Mix) is the 8th track of Disc 1 of the Bayonetta Original Soundtrack. It serves as one of the main fighting themes alongside Mysterious Destiny.

The track itself is a remix of the popular standard song Fly Me to the Moon which was written by Bart Howard in 1954. It was originally titled In Other Words, and was introduced by Felicia Sanders in cabarets. The song's name was changed to Fly Me To The Moon in later years, has been performed by many artists including Frank Sinatra, Astrud Gilberto, Tony Bennett, Rod Stewart, Diana Krall, Doris Day, and Julie London. One recording by Brenda Lee is used in the second half of the credits in Bayonetta. This version is the 23rd track of Disc 4 in the Bayonetta Original Soundtrack.

Bayonetta

The Climax Mix of the song is heard in nearly every chapter that isn't specifically dedicated to a boss (i.e, The Cardinal Virtues), usually whenever a verse begins. It serves as a main fighting theme against the Angels of Paradiso. The slower, original version by Brenda Lee plays during the second half of the game's credits, during the famous Bayonetta pole dancing end cutscene.

Bayonetta 2

The motif of Fly Me To The Moon has been replaced by the song Moon River, and likewise is used one of the main fighting themes of the sequel. Moon River as well receives a Climax Mix edit, and has a variation of the original sung in the second half of the credits.

Lyrics

Fly me to the moon
And let me play among the stars
Let me see what Spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

In other words
Hold my hand
In other words
Darling kiss me

Fill my heart with song
And let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore

In other words
Please be true
In other words
I love you
