good morning! i am in love with this week’s mashup selection from DJ paul v. which uses one of my favorite songs of all-time (in fact i just bought it last week to toss on my ipod) carly simon‘s ‘you’re so vain’ – who doesn’t like that song?!? anyways i’m a wee bit tired from last night’s natasha bedingfield concert – she was amazing live – i had a splendid time and met a bunch of cool people – now i just need to deal with today – ugh! popbytes over & out for now…xxoo
† FROM DJ PAUL V.
This week’s mash has a bit of a backstory to it. See, back in 1972, singer Carly Simon had a number one hit with ‘You’re So Vain.’ After bedding celebs of the era like Warren Beatty, Kris Kristofferson and Mick Jagger, there’s still speculation to this day as to which self-absorbed ex-lover is the subject of the bitch-slap lyrics. And Carly adamantly says she probably won’t ever reveal who it actually is. Well, most fingers tend to point to Jagger (nearly Simon’s doppleganger then with those rubber lips and long brown hair), and it’s imagined in song by the prolific and always-intriguing Go Home Productions, who comes out of semi-mashup-retirement with a new batch of tunes dubbed ‘Spliced Krispies’ that are mainly dipped in the late 70’s rock era. You can check the video here.
