coldplay is this a homage?

Kraftwerk's "Computerliebe" (1:09) and Coldplay's "Talk" have identical melody lines in their refrains. Like, the notes and rhythm are identical. Rampant copying! Looks like someone on youtube noticed this like a month ago.

edit: Perhaps it's an instance of CRYPTOMNESIA??

really? that's so lame... unless they did it on purpose. But if they did, wouldn't they need to get permission?

maybe German copyright law is not so stringent... or Kraftwerk has better things to do than make a scandal.
