Watch 3rd track from No Secrets (1972). Carly Simon has never publicly revealed who she had in mind when she wrote this saucy, little, pop-rock number—although its generated a surprising amount of speculation! ~thatMimosaGrove * [Whisper] Son of a gun. You walked into the party like you were walking onto a yacht Your hat strategically dipped below one eye Your scarf, it was apricot You had one eye in the mirror as you watched yourself gavotte And all the girls dreamed that theyd be your partner Theyd be your partner, and... Youre so vain, you probably think this song is about you Youre so vain, Ill bet you think this song is about you Dont you? Dont You? You had me several years ago when I was still quite naive Well you said that we made such a pretty pair And that you would never leave But you gave away the things you loved and one of them was me I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee Clouds in my coffee, and... Youre so vain, you probably think this song is about you Youre so vain, Ill bet you think this song is about you Dont you? Dont You? I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee Clouds in my coffee, and... Youre so vain, you probably think this song is about you Youre so vain, Ill bet you think this song is about you Dont you? Dont You? Well, I hear you went up to Saratoga and your horse naturally won Then you flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia To see the total eclipse of the sun Well, youre where you should be all the time And when youre not, youre with Some underworld spy or the wife of a close friend Wife of a close friend, and... Youre so vain, you probably think this song is about you Youre so vain, Ill bet you think this song is about you Dont you? Dont You? Dont You? Youre so vain, you probably think this song is about you Youre so vain, Ill bet you think this song is about you Dont you? Dont You? * In January of 1973, Youre So Vain was the # 1 hit song on the radio. Carly Simon had just married fellow pop-superstar James Taylor a month before, so when Youre So Vain hit the airwaves, it stirred intense curiosity about which one of her previous lovers was the subject of this wry nod to the male ego. Was it Mick Jagger? Cat Stevens? Warren Beatty? Kris Kristofferson? It was common knowledge that she had been involved with each of them in the past. To this day, she is still asked the question, Who is Youre So Vain about? Here you can read some her responses for clues... http://www.carlysimon.com/Youre_So_Vain.html Or better yet, check out Wikipedias entry for this song! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You%27re_So_Vain *** Btw, Ive always found Carlys album covers quite intriguing and recently discovered a blog that celebrates her work and career by looking back through them: Where the covers of Carly Simon and Anticipation placed Carly firmly within a photographers carefully composed setting, on the cover of No Secrets she is seemingly caught unaware by the camera. The effect is much more immediate, engaged, and informal. Her clothes are crucial to this sense of informality. The handbag over the shoulder, the velour jeans, floppy hat, and loose jersey are as casual as her stance. She is caught in mid-stride, and, with a light breeze blowing and her nipples showing through her top, it is as though we have just bumped into her on the street. Of course, not everyone we bump into in the street is so finely formed, so sexy, so hip. Hence, the captivating effect of this album cover. As Sheila Weller comments, in her book Girls Like Us, the photograph shows Carly in errand-doing, lunch date-going motion. It offers an image many women would recognise and perhaps aspire to: youthful, confident, and chic without any stuffiness. Men were also captivated, and for obvious reasons. Indeed, the cover was reknown: six years later, a Rolling Stone reporter based a lengthy profile of Carly around his lust for this image, and he scarcely had to explain it to his readers... ~ http://carlysimonalbumcovers.blogspot.com/2011/05/no-secrets-1972.html
