Carly Simon, You're So Vain

Oh how I love Carly. I heard this on the radio the other day and it occurred to me that it's one of the cleverest songs lyrically. I love how bitter, yet knowing, this is. It has a killer chorus: I bet you think this song is about you.

I think it has the best opening lyrics of any song:

"You walked into the party like you were walking onto a yacht, your hat strategically dipped below your eye, your scarf it was apricot."

I love the way she pronounces apricot.
