Carly Simon - You're So Vain (1972)





"You're So Vain" is a song written and performed by Carly Simon and released in November 1972. The song is a critical profile of a self-absorbed lover; Simon asserts "You're so vain, you probably think this song is about you." The title subject's identity has long been a matter of speculation. The song is memorable for the clever self-reference, an example of metafiction.

The song is ranked at #82 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of All-Time. "You're So Vain" was voted #216 in RIAA's Songs of the Century. And on August 23, 2014, the U.K. Official Charts Company crowned it the ultimate song of the 1970s. It remains Simon's biggest hit and is considered her signature song.
