Ladytron -- "Seventeen" (2002)

They only want you when you're seventeen
When you're twenty-one
You're no fun
They take a Polaroid and let you go
Say they'll let you know
So come on
Ladytron is a British electropop band that was formed in Liverpool in 1999.  They took their name from the 1972 Roxy Music song, "Ladytron."

The lines quoted above are the lyrics of "Seventeen" in their entirety -- they are repeated seven times in the song. 

Mira Aroyo
Here's the most interesting thing I know about Ladytron: band member Mira Aroyo -- who was born in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria -- writes and sings in Bulgarian as well as English.  (Besides being a musician, Mira was a postgraduate research geneticist at Oxford University.  She published an article in Molecular Microbiology in 2003.  She is a pescetarian, which means she eats fish but not meat.)

Here's the official music video for "Ladytron."  (Don't worry -- I don't know what the hell is going on in the video either.)
