Apropros of nothing, pt. 1

Listening to the band rehearsing their Star Trek bit (which I assume is for the first show - set in space, remember), when Eric hits the first two notes on the piano, I am reminded not of the Star Trek theme, but the first two notes of ABBA's "The Winner Takes it All." Can someone else confirm this for me later tonight? I'm not going crazy, am I? Cause if I'm the only one who thinks that I'm going to feel really , really irreversibly gay.

The first two notes of the Theme from Star Trek (which actually has words, written by Gene Roddenberry. And yes, they are deliciously horrid lyrics) is a rising minor 7th. This is the same interval in The Winner Takes it All. It is also the same interval in 'Ma Coeur a Ta Voix Doux,' the famous aria from Saint-Saens' opera 'Samson et Delilah.' Saint-Saens was also gay. But what do you expect from a French composer who's first name is Camille?
