"Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words)" is Utada Hikaru's cover of Kaye Ballard's 1954 love ballad made famous by Frank Sinatra. It was first released as one of the the B-sides to her "Wait & See ~Risk~" single. A month later it was released on vinyl with exclusive remixes. Included with the vinyl release was a sweepstakes competition for a DVD that included the animated PV for "Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words)". The vinyl only reached #16 on the Oricon charts, selling its 20,000 copies. Utada later sung the song live at the World Economic Forum on Jan. 31st in New York City.

In 2007, a remix version called "Fly Me To The Moon (In Other Words) -2007 Mix-" was released and used as the trailer song for the movie Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone.
