I, Carly

Happy birthday, Carly Simon.  Daughter of the Simon of Simon & Schuster, she made a name for herself during the singer-songwriter era of the 70s (and married another major singer-songwriter, James Taylor).

Here's her first big solo hit.

Her next hit became even more famous when it was used in Heinz ketchup commercials.

For years there's been speculation as to whom her biggest hit is about.  Simon says it's about a composite of men she knew, though the favorite candidate has always been Warren Beatty.

You're So Vain and you have every right to be.

Spurn a songwritin' lady at your peril.

I always suspected it was getting back at the guy in the Dylan song who thought it was such a drag to see his old lady. (Yeah, I can't remember the title- it sucks to get old)

Happy Birthday Carly- I think a lot od sensitive dudes had (and still have) crushes on you

The cover of her album showed the outline of her nipples which I think helped her sales.
