GUEST,jeff Music Mystery - 'You're so Vain' subject (67* d) RE: Music Mystery - 'You're so Vain' subject 27 Feb 10

She revealed that it's about David Geffen. Speculation is that it was written in regards to her being miffed that he spent more time/money promoting Joni Mitchell, her labelmate at the time. And if that's the case one could hardly blame him given the breadth and depth of their respective works. Carly's lyrics read like a functionally neurotic college co-ed w/father issues. Shallow, vapid and dare I say vain?
