The person Simon is singing about remains a mystery, as she has never made it clear who she wrote about. Rumors include Warren Beatty, Kris Kristofferson, Cat Stevens, and Mick Jagger, all of whom she had affairs with.
In fact the male back-up vocal in the song is that of Mick Jagger. Simon married James Taylor a month before the song was released. She did say it’s definitely not about him.
In 2001, Carly sang on Janet Jackson’s “Son Of A Gun,” which was an updated version of the hit.
