Song Of The Day "I'm Not Your Toy" by La Roux


Elly Jackson aka La Roux, (French for “the red haired one”) isn’t about disposable dance floor fodder or meaningless pap. “It’s not that I can’t listen to music without words that mean something, I do all the time. It’s just not the kind of music I want to make. I’ve cried between vocal takes. I want to connect with people at that level,” she says. The South Londoner is experiencing all the things girls of that age tend to; heartbreak, frustration, wonderment, invincibility and fragility. But unlike most girls her age, Elly has a staggering ability to channel all these feelings and experiences into wondrous blasts of crystal-clean ear candy that hit the listener with instant resonance.
