Carly Simon

Carly Simon was one of the most popular of the confessional singer/songwriters who emerged in the early '70s. The youngest child in an upper-class New York family (her father, Richard Simon, co-founded the Simon & Schuster publishing company), Simon got her start in music as part of a duo with her sister Lucy (who later wrote the music for the Broadway show The Secret Garden). The Simon Sisters had a chart single with "Winkin' Blinkin' and Nod" in April 1964. But Simon's solo debut did not come until the release of her self-titled first album in February 1971. It contained her first solo hit, "That's the Way I've Always Heard It Should Be," an anti-marriage song co-written with Jacob Brackman that reached the Top Ten. Simon's second album, Anticipation (November 1971) (which went gold in two years), contained a Top 40 follow-up in the title song, and she won the 1971 Grammy Award for Best New Artist. Her third album, the gold number one No Secrets (November 1972), was produced by Richard Perry and contained the gold number one hit "You're So Vain," which aroused speculation about its subject. Mick Jagger, one of those suggested, sang backup on the recording. "The Right Thing to Do," a second single from the album, made the Top 40.

Simon married fellow singer/songwriter James Taylor in November 1972. (They divorced in 1983.) Her fourth album, the Top Ten Hotcakes (January 1974), contained a gold Top Ten remake of the Inez & Charlie Foxx hit "Mockingbird" sung with Taylor and the Top Ten hit "Haven't Got Time for the Pain"; it became her third consecutive gold LP. Playing Possum (April 1975), containing the Top 40 hit "Attitude Dancing," was another Top Ten LP. Simon's sixth album, Another Passenger (June 1976), was a relative commercial disappointment. But in 1977, she sang "Nobody Does It Better," the theme song for the James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me, resulting in a gold Top Ten hit. Her seventh album, Boys in the Trees (April 1978), was a million-selling success, buoyed by the Top Ten hit "You Belong to Me" and a Top 40 duet cover of "Devoted to You" with Taylor. Simon's eighth and ninth albums, Spy (June 1979) and Come Upstairs (June 1980), were less successful, though the latter contained the gold Top 40 hit "Jesse."

In October 1980, Simon collapsed of exhaustion on-stage, after which her concert appearances became rare. Her next album, Torch (September 1981), was given over to pre- and non-rock covers. In 1982, Simon scored a Top Ten U.K. hit with "Why," a song produced by the disco group Chic from the movie Soup for One. In 1983, she returned to the U.K. Top 40 as the uncredited singer on the Will Powers (Lynn Goldsmith) satire "Kissing with Confidence." Simon's career in the U.S. was in decline, however, as the albums Hello Big Man (September 1983) and Spoiled Girl (July 1985) were poor sellers. She returned to the Top 40 in 1986 with another movie theme, "Coming Around Again," from Heartburn (the 1987 Coming Around Again LP went platinum) and had yet another movie-related hit with the Grammy- and Oscar-winning "Let the River Run" from the film Working Girl in 1988. In 1990, Simon released both My Romance (March), another album of pop covers, and Have You Seen Me Lately? (September), an album of original songs. She scored the film This Is My Life in 1992.

In 1993, Simon's "family opera," Romulus Hunt, premiered and was released on record, and 1994 brought the release of a new album, Letters Never Sent (November). A three-CD/cassette box set retrospective, Clouds in My Coffee 1965-1995, appeared in November 1995. Film Noir followed two years later, and in the spring of 2000 Simon returned with her first record of original material in six years, The Bedroom Tapes. In 2002 she released Christmas Is Almost Here, a collection of holiday-themed material, followed by another collection of new material, Moonlight Serenade, in 2005. Into White, which featured mostly versions of standards, was released in 2006. After signing with Hear Music, Simon released This Kind of Love in 2008. Never Been Gone appeared in 2009. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

Loved Another Passenger too. It's not on here though.

I loved the album Another Passenger! It has some great music on it!
Jesse. OH, NO. THE JESSE SONG. GREAT SONG. BAD NAME. That's the one that tried to murder me. I love this song though. I hate the name though. At least now I do. Oh, well, what can you do?
You Belong To Me. The cover of this album is a work of art. That's awesome. Great photo art is when the photo actually looks like a painting, which this one does. THAT my dear Pandora Pals IS photo art.
love her voice

Grew up with Carly. Always loved her voice and songs.
Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in the next 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works
Must have been cold....
A soft and soothing sound one of the first Lady's of ROCK.

Carly Simon's music is relaxed, brilliant, and beautiful. Nobody does it better. Enjoyed every one of the songs from Clouds in My Coffee.
gracierobbin s
I will always link her with Winnie the Pooh
Where is the song Why? That's my favorite song from her !
But wait... This song is about me right?
howardgetsem a i l
You speak to my heart, Carly.
Love Carly Simon! Amazing voice, song writer, and beautiful. Can listen to her all day. Keep on signing Carly! Nobody Does It Better than you do Carly! One of the best Bond songs.
i wonder if it was cold out when the picture was taken on the album No Secrets
Carly Simon Pure Genious!!! 100% Talented! Lve Her beauty & truth!
Been a Carly fan for 40 years. She's one of my all time favorites. I think she's very underrated. Each of her 70s LPs were brilliant, right thru Come Upstairs. IMO, her work after that was not nearly as good, but that is the norm for most outstanding artists; it's hard to keep that creative edge. Also, I've always been attracted to her; she's a Babe with unique looks.
She probably dumped JT ... he had/has a drug problem, and that kinda hurts marriages
Always had such heart and talent. How JT let her get away we'll never know...those were very different days.
Yep, she is also classy.. Always love her smile too.
Such a beautiful and talented artist. My sisters and I grew up listening to her songs. Music was so much different then. The 60's, 70's, and 80's. Times sure have changed! I really miss those days!!!
cowniew
One of my favorite female vocalists from the 70s. Absolutely great. I know that we can't have it all but it sure would be nice to hear something from Playing Possum.
C Simon ROCKS!! Have always loved her music and her voice. Looking forward to hearing more of her djkgc in NC from IA wish I was in FL
joypaslov
I would love to see you in concert again!!
I have owned Carly's albums (a lot of the same ones) on vinyl, 8 track, cassette, now MP3 and am listening to her now in my office on Pandora. I am obviously still a huge fan since a kid of the 70's. :) Just love her.
cjccteach
Takes me back to my teens...what a talent...lov e you still Carly...my almost 17 year old daughter listens to you now...that really touches me.
NAMED MY DAUGHTER CARLY AFTER HER
mchur54
carly simon no secrets album was my 15th summer's come to life. i think this was her best album the song robin and the carter family were so IT for me :) thank you carly..
denmoy
My comment referring to her son singing is about the song Time Works . . . from the album Letters Never Sent After not hearing any new Carly Simon songs for a long time, somehow this collection was instant nostalgia. To hear her son brings hope for the future, almost like seeing my own grandson.
denmoy
Son of James Taylor and Carly Simon -- cut him and he bleeds music.
Ms. Simon will you marry me?

Brings me back to being in my mom's car in the early 70s
I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee.

Why do people use this forum to put down another person. It's all about the music so play nice!
She always intrigued me with her ability to speak a side of the woman's perspective that was not popular. She swam upstream and had that smooth tone that kept me calm on my most stress days. Thanks Carly...
fupanitz
