STAGE TUBE: Carly Simon Surprises Taylor Swift Stadium Crowd with 'You're So Vain' Duet
Carly Simon joined Taylor Swift on her Red Tour stop at Gillette Stadium on July 27, 2013 to surprise the crowd by singing her 1972 classic, 'You're So Vain', in front of a screaming crowd of 50,000+.
"You're So Vain" is a song written and performed by Carly Simon and released in November 1972. The song is a critical profile of a self-absorbed lover; Simon asserts "You're so vain, you probably think this song is about you." The subject's identity has long been a matter of speculation.
The song is ranked at #72 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of All-Time. "You're So Vain" was voted #216 in RIAA's Songs of the Century. It remains Simon's biggest hit and is considered her signature song.
The Red Tour is the third worldwide concert tour by American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift. The tour was launched in support of Swift's fourth studio album, Red, which was released in 2012.
