5.0 out of 5 stars For me, the outstanding Track on this Album., 2 Aug. 2009

This review is from: You're So Vain (MP3 Download)
The song... you're so vain... is a great song, not only because of its smart lyrics, but the mystery surrounding who the song is about. Carly Simon probably didn't exactly "put it about a bit" back then, but there are people who suggest it might be Cat Stevens... it might be Mick Jagger or Warren Beatty... the object of the song (if anyone at all) remains a mystery to this day. Nevertheless, with the added bit of mystery, it is just an even better song - nothing quite like it out there. The main chorus is instantly memorable and so catchy to boot... "Well you're where you should be all the time, and when you're not you're with, some underworld spy or the wife of a close friend, wife of a close friend, and..." ha-ha-ha-ha!

4.0 out of 5 stars One of those songs you can listen to again and again, 10 April 2013

This review is from: You're So Vain (MP3 Download)
I can't say what it is about this classic song that makes it timeless, but it's one of the few songs I never switch off when it comes on the radio. I listen to stations which have a playlist- the same song can come up several times in a few weeks, then you don't hear it again for ages. Usually, if a song is on the playlist, I can listen to it a couple of times, but then decide I've had enough of it for the time being. But this song is one of a few exceptions to the rule. I have no idea who the song is about- Carly herself has supposedly told several different stories about the inspiration for it- so why not imagine it's about your least favourite celebrity?

This is a clever song as well as being extremely well produced and performed. "You probably think this song is about you and it is", but who?

5.0 out of 5 stars Same main weather cooper., 16 Feb. 2010
This review is from: You're So Vain (MP3 Download)
It must be said that this version does not contain the 'whispered by Carly Simon name of the subject of this song', but it is clearly about me. In the original vinyl release of this catchy song, years before the DVD's and m3p's, like this download is, she whispers in the left channel, during the first chorus, my name - Mr Bus.

If you can get a copy of the original recording, keep an ear open to the double instance of sibilence during the pause after 'so'. It is defo 'Mr Bus' that is said by *her*. This is an understandable reaction by a creative and free spirit as Carly Simon is and was still, and if ever you meet *me*, and you are creative, you would probably want to capture *me*, or an essence of *me*, in some art form or another.

So far *I* have had poems, odes, limericks, sculptures, photos (glamour and black'n'white), park benches named after, plaques put up, crowds of mixed gender suitors, offers of lust and film deals for *my* life stories. *I* even have someone to type for *me* just so they can have the honour to do it for *me*. This song is one of many classics written for *me* by Bus struck fans, for example Eric Clapton wrote 'Wonderful Tonight' about *me* too. A list of other songs and books etc written and created for *me* is available on request.

Get into *me*.

Mr Bus
