Annals of Gentlemanly Discretion

And as a followup to Friday's post about the new Broadway musical version of Dr. Zhivago -- said show written by my old employer Lucy Simon (sister of Carly) -- there was a fitfully interesting interview in the NY Times late last week with the two siblings.

Modesty, of course, forbids me from saying anything more about the piece; obviously, if I did, Carly would write another song about me.

Okay. Time for a little honesty here. I've never admitted this but I never liked Carly Simon's music, and from what I've heard from others I probably wouldn't like her, either. A rich, entitled princess convinced her every thought belonged in a song. There are millions of them out there these days but CS was able to make a career out of it.

I genuinely love the song Carly wrote for WORKING GIRL.

Never bought a single album of hers and I have thousands of records. There's not much about her that I like. Her horrendous duet with JT doing "Mockingbird" forever sealed the deal with me.

Imagine poor James having to suffer because "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" only made it to #14 while "You're So Vain" topped the charts. Man was life tough in that household. I can't stomach her.

But she does have a nice pair of Carly Simons on her.
