You’re So Vain – Carly Simon

Who doesn’t like a good angry woman song? I dig this song because instead of being the “woah is me” type of song it is puts the subject of the song in their place. It has such power to it which makes me feel happy.

The chorus is awesome because she is singing about someone but then cuts them down by saying they are vain to think the song is about them. Ha! They can’t win.

Carly has a beautiful voice (well did – her voice is a little rough now). I love the deepness of her voice. It provides a richness to song that makes it more powerful. I think a higher voiced singer would make this song sound kind of…whiney. But she makes it perfect.
