You’re So Vain

I am BEYOND EXCITED that my first show in over 2.5 years is tomorrow! 😲💙

If you’re interested, the details are as follows:

Hop Haus Brewing Co
Friday, August 26th from 6pm to 9pm
231 S Main St, Verona, WI 53593

I’m really looking forward to performing the 43 songs I have prepared for the show!

One of the songs I plan on performing is my cover of Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain.”

On my YouTube channel, I posted my cover of “You’re So Vain” in 2012.

I don’t have a lot of covers on my YouTube channel because I like to get permission before I post covers, and fortunately and gratefully, I did get permission for “You’re So Vain.”

Here is the original version of the song.

Lyrics:

You walked into the party like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot
You had one eye in the mirror, as you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they’d be your partner
They’d be your partner and
You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain (you’re so vain)
I bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you don’t you?
You had me several years ago when I was still quite naive
Well you said that we made such a pretty pair and that you would never leave
But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was me
I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee clouds in my coffee and
You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain (you’re so vain)
I bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you don’t you don’t you?
I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee clouds in my coffee and
You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain (you’re so vain)
I bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you don’t you?
Well I hear you went up to Saratoga
And your horse naturally won
Then you flew your lear jet up to Nova Scotia
To see the total eclipse of the sun
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
You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain (so vain)
I bet you think this song is about you
Don’t you don’t you don’t you?
You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You’re so vain
Probably think this song about you
You’re so vain

I remember hearing this song often on the radio growing up when my mom would have on her “Saturday at the 70s” station. 😎

Whenever I hear the song, I think of the movie How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, particularly this scene. 😉

What does the song make you think of?

If you can make it out to the show tomorrow, I’d love to see you there! 💛

Wishing you well! 💚

  1. Whenever I hear this song, my mind goes to the mystery of who Carly wrote the song about.
