Fans of Swedish singer Robyn are speculating about a new online theory regarding two of her popular tracks including Dancing on my Own. Indeed, the speculation has gone viral.

According to the theory, first suggested by Twitter user Sam Natale, Robyn’s 2010 hit Dancing On My Own and 2011’s Call Your Girlfriend are linked.

Sam theorised the lyrics to the two tracks are about the same night. However, she believes the songs tell the story from two different perspectives. Many who responded to the tweet couldn’t help but agree.

“My Robyn conspiracy theory: Dancing on my Own and Call Your Girlfriend are about the same night, viewed from different perspectives.”

Dancing on my Own

Dancing On My Own tells the story of a girl who finds herself watching her ex-girlfriend kissing another girl on the dancefloor.

“I’m in the corner, watching you kiss her. I’m right over here, why can’t you see me.”

The song continues:

“I’m giving it my all, but I’m not the girl you’re taking home. I keep dancing on my own.”

Theorists believe Call Your Girlfriend also tells the same events, but from the other woman’s perspective.

“Call your girlfriend, it’s time you had the talk.

“Give your reasons. Say it’s not her fault, but you just met somebody new.”

Since Sam first tweeted the theory last weekend, it’s attracted more than 6,000 likes. It’s also been retweeted 2,000 times.
