By far Simon's most famous song is "You're So Vain", a bouncily sarcastic hit about an egotistical male friend with a penchant for homewrecking and globetrotting hedonism; [[WMG/YoureSoVainTheories speculation has been rampant for four decades]] about who it's about, but Simon has only publicly revealed three letters of the man's name: A, R, and E[[note]]which leaves out the man most assumed it was, Creator/JackNicholson[[/note]]. She has told a few people, including TV exec Dick (Rich'''a'''rd) '''E'''be'''r'''sol and HowardStern, but to everyone else, there has been a long list of speculated men, including Mick J'''a'''gg'''er''' (who sang backup on the song), W'''ar'''r'''e'''n Beatty,[[note]]Fair enough. On Nov. 18 2015 she admitted the second verse is about him "but he thinks it's the whole song!"[[/note]] guitar builder D'''a'''ni'''e'''l A'''r'''mstrong, and record exec D'''a'''vid Law'''r'''ence G'''e'''ffen [[note]]Geffen has been openly gay for a very long time, but the rumor is that Simon was jealous of his professional favoritism towards his friend Joni Mitchell.[[/note]]. Simon has openly said it is not about her ex-husband J'''a'''m'''e'''s Taylo'''r''', but did once joke about it being about D'''e'''ep Th'''r'''o'''a'''t (aka W. M'''ar'''k F'''e'''lt). [[note]]She apparently got the idea for the apricot scarf from NickNolte, who has only two of the required letters -- Nichol'''a'''s Nolt'''e'''.[[/note]] In 2015 she finally revealed that each of the three verses is actually about a different man, and the second one is Beatty, but she still intends to take the identities of the other two to her grave.
