Simon has recently rerecorded a version of 'You're So Vain' for 'Never Been Gone,' her new record of reimagined songs from her back catalog. And while it would've been easy to ask who it was about, we were more curious as to what the wildest theory Simon's been presented with over the years. "Jesus Christ," she tells Spinner. "I don't remember who they were but it wasn't any one I had respect for before they said that. But after they said it was Jesus Christ, I had enormous respect for them. How unusual. Who would have thought, especially with the 'one eye in the mirror' line. I don't think there were even real mirrors back then. Maybe he was looking at himself in a spoon."
There you have it -- the son of God rules as Simon's craziest theory to date. But, if you think about it, the name David does have biblical origins. So, whether they weren't too far off or it was just about no one in particular, it's still fun to guess.
'Never Been Gone' is out now on Iris Records.
