"Deep Throat", the Song

  • Feb 27, 2010
I don't care.

Nor is it that much a mystery to me and the revelation as many speculated would be a letdown.

Remember a few years ago when we all finally learned who the infamous "Deep Throat" was?  Do you remember anyone who cared afterward?  I honestly don't even remember the guys name, and you don't have to bother telling me.

The mystery was around for a long time, who it could be, who burned or angered Simon into penning her pop hit, for years it was thought to be Warren Beaty, Kris Kristopherson, Mick Jagger even James Taylor her husband, many wondered but Simon wasn't telling.  Only a select few in Dick Ebersol who won a charity auction to learn the secret and Howard Stern knew the answer and finally Simon has let the air out of the balloon:


David Geffen.  Is the mystery man.  HE is who You're So Vain is about.

There, do you still care?

I didn't grow up in the 70's, I didn't become a fan of Simon until years ago and never even knew there was a mystery when I became a fan and now...........it doesn't affect my love of the song that much but now that I know I will try not to let the song fade into obscurity.

What did you think of this review?
