Fly me to the moon


What does it mean to say "Please be true"?

I first heard Fly me to the moon in Neon Genesis Evangelion.

In that anime, no one is happy.

Combined with the ending image of the song sinking into the sea, it made the song dark and sad.


The viewpoint is flying into distant space, saying 'Take me to the moon, let me play amongst the stars...'

It's as if someone is escaping from what is happening on earth.

Furthermore, I telling how much I love you in various expressions,

Please be true" makes me feel nervous.

Some translate it as 'please be true', being sincere and not lying.

I felt a sense of anxiety showing through.

I like you, so I don't mind if you don't, but I'm not afraid of you...', while being strong.

Like she was feeling unsure and anxious, but her feelings came out through her

mouth, I felt a quiet stagnation begin to build up inside me.


I have a favourite diva.

Many of the fans who listen to her songs feel as if the sound is getting into every single pore of their body.


I was surprised the other day when I heard Fly me to the moon at her concert.

The rhythm, the tempo and the expression on her face during her singing were bright without hesitation.

It was the complete opposite of that of Evangelion, so much so that I thought it was a different song.

It was light and joyful.

There was a cute woman there, as if winking with a smile and saying, "If you lie to me, I won't forgive you.
