Carly Simon Mick JaggerYou don’t need a professional ear to realize that the uncredited background vocalist on Carly Simon’s 1972 smash ‘You’re So Vain’ belongs to Rolling Stones vocalist Mick Jagger.

When asked how the collaboration came out, Simon said, “He happened to call at the studio…  I said “We’re doing some backup vocals on a song of mine, why don’t you come down and sing with us?” (Guess these things aren’t that complicated.)
