Although it sounds like it could be a cut on any one of Taylor Swift’s albums, Carly Simon was doing the in-your-face you-done-me-wrong song long before the lovely Taylor was a twinkle in her Daddy’s eye. And the attitude! Clearly this is not a girl you want to cross. She did everything but name names in this song. One line even describes the guy wearing an apricot colored scarf. That should reduce the possibilities considerably, because I don’t know any men who would wear a scarf, peachy colored or otherwise. Or maybe I just don’t run in the right circles. Rumor has it that the cad in question is Warren Beatty but lately I’ve read that some people think the song is about David Geffen, but Ms. Simon herself has said that the man in question is really a composite of three different men.
My money is on Warren. I could totally see him in that scarf.
