Understanding You’re So Vain

From “12tone”. ( YouTube / Nebula )

It’s one of rock’s greatest mysteries: Who is You’re So Vain actually about? And now, for the first time ever, I can finally, definitively, beyond a shadow of a doubt… not answer it. I’m sorry! I don’t actually know! In fact, according to Carly Simon it’s not even about just one person! But what I do know is that it’s doing some really cool musical stuff to help build that mystery. It’s a great piece of music and one of the most enduring revenge songs in history, and I want to talk about it. So I did!
