At least one of these burning questions has apparently been answered. For 38 years, the finger pointed toward various ex-suitors of singer Carly Simon as the titular bighead. Warren Beatty (certainly vain, family in Novia Scotia), Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger (probably owned an apricot scarf) and Simon's ex-husband James Taylor have all been rumoured to be the self-obsessed subject. But now, in a suitably cryptic manner, the true gavotte-dancing, Learjet-flying egotist has seemingly been revealed -- and it may not necessarily be a former lover of Simon at all.
'You're So Vain' (New Version)
Backwards "David" Clip
Can you find other hidden
names in the song?
Approached for comment, Simon's camp told Spinner, "It's just a clue. There are many Davids."
So, there you go. Although we suppose the only way of really knowing if the riddle of 'You're So Vain' has been solved is if somewhere David Geffen is reading this and thinking, "Well, obviously."
As previously reported, Spinner has teamed up with Simon to allow fans the chance to direct the official video to this legendary hit.
