37 Years Later, Carly Simon Finally Makes A Video For “You’re So Vain”

A little while back, it was rumored that Carly Simon’s 1973 hit “You’re So Vain” was actually about David Geffen. And here I was assuming all along that it was about every guy I’ve ever dated. Carly put all that energy into keeping the song’s “you” a secret that she forgot to make a music video. She talked about her oversight at a Tribeca Film Festival party, telling the crowd, “I never really thought about it until I was on the ‘Today’ show recently and had a 103-degree temperature. I was completely out of it, but I realized, why don’t I have a video for ‘You’re So Vain?’” Good question, Carly. We’ve been wondering the same thing for like … our whole lives. I guess Geffen and my narcissistic exes were all booked up, because Carly chose to have a competition to see who could make the best “You’re So Vain” video instead of making her own. The winning entry shows a Hasidic Jew searching for a pie. Huh? I don’t get it. Please explain. I guess we’ll have to wait until it hits YouTube to find out. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Geffen was at the helm of Elektra Records when Simon was on that label, and the lyrics could hint at Simon’s anger over Geffen’s choice to focus more on another singer-songwriter, Joni Mitchell.
