Three songs comparing love with space travel:
277. Duke Ellington, “Moon Maiden” (1969):
Written to coincide with the actual moon landing, this song features some clever lyrics with an astronaut’s journey to the moon serving as a metaphor for courtship, and/or vice versa (“I’m just a fly-by-night guy … I made my approach and then revolved”)
You can hear the lyrics more clearly in this version, where he switches from singing them to speaking them:
278. Police, “Walking on the Moon” (1979):
279. Justin Timberlake, “Spaceship Coupe” (2013):
