You're so vainI always start giggling when the chorus starts. (Sometimes I even yell things at the radio.) I guess I find it funny because I tend to think about some things rather literally, thus this song just seems so silly because of course it's about whomever she is singing it to. Also, it's self-referential, which is just fun from a math standpoint.
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?
So I equally laughed when I saw this headline today: "Obama: 'I don't think about Sarah Palin'" Here's a snippet from the USA Today article:
President Obama is refusing to take the bait on Sarah's Palin statement that she could beat him in the 2012 presidential race.This reminds me of the Carly Simon song.
ABC's Barbara Walters tried to get a rise out of Obama on Palin and 2012, but the president said: "I don't speculate on what's going to happen two years from now."
Pressed by Walters, Obama said: "What I'm saying is I don't think about Sarah Palin."
