Since then it has become a frequently recorded jazz standard often featured in popular culture. Frank Sinatra's 1964 version was closely associated with the Apollo missions to the Moon.

Rowlf the Dog sang a snippet of the song to himself as he prepares a moon voyage in the May 6, 1965 episode of The Jimmy Dean Show.

Tony Bennett sung a parody of the tune on Sesame Street entitled "Slimey to the Moon."

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Miss Piggy perform a rendition of the song on Up Late with Miss Piggy in The Muppets episode "Going, Going, Gonzo."
