A study out of a local university has revealed that, despite frequent reports to the contrary, the DJ was not solely responsible for them falling in love again. While it remains unclear exactly who “them” and “us” actually are, relationship scientists and geneticists have concluding that there are more contributing factors than just music in reuniting former lovers. 

First popularised in 2010 by Usher’s hit song “DJ Got Us Fallin’ in Love”, for eight years we’ve been led to believe that a separated couple reunited on the dancefloor of a local discotheque based purely on the quality of music being played by the resident disc jockey. But now, thanks to an in-depth thesis produced at a local university, we can confirm that much more than just music has the ability to bring two lovers back together again.  

Speaking exclusively to The Watsonia Bugle about the findings, Professor Lisa Bradford said, “Initially I agreed with Mr Usher’s assertion that music was the sole motivating factor in the rekindled romance between the two lovers. However, on further inspection, after consulting with a range of relationship experts and scientists, this thesis has been able to categorically conclude that other factors would have been at play. For starters, physical attraction plays a huge part in the unifying nature of any romantic relationship. Then there’s the understanding of shared values, the familiarity of a past lover, and the more anecdotal finding that, perhaps, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. And, considering that the reunion occurred at a licensed venue, we can’t entirely rule out the possible role that alcohol would’ve played in these two love birds getting back together again.”
