Let's Not Talk of Love and

quotes music

Today I noticed a lyrical connection between Leonard Cohen and Hawkwind.

From Cohen’s “Hey, That’s No Way to Say Goodbye” (1967):

But let’s not talk of love or chains and things we can’t untie

Your eyes are soft with sorrow

Hey, that’s no way to say goodbye

From Hawkwind’s “Urban Guerrilla” (1973), written by Robert Calvert:

So let’s not talk of love and flowers and things that don’t explode

We’ve used up all our magic powers

Trying to do it in the road
