She confessed, this song is mostly about her ex, Warren Beatty

Okay this is joke , Mick Jagger James Taylor Paul Simon and Warren Beatty get on a boat together and they run Carly Simon and she can't get them of the a publishing contract anywhere. So she has no connections

It about Warren Beatty, final answer, common knowledge.

i'll bet there are a lot of guys who think this song was written about them. I heard it was Kristofferso n . I think it's carly's masterpiece. if I hear this song in my car, I become a danger to the public. then I try to get over to the side of the road so I can just ROCK OUT with carly. sounds like a reality show: rocking out with carley. but if that were true, I be spending a lot of time on the sides of freeways, rocking out to one great song after another. I don't think the chp would like that

It's about Mick Jagger, when they first met, he came into the room,wearing the apricot, looking at himself in the mirror, like he was something cool. He tried stealing her from James Taylor on this first meeting. He also played vocals in this song when she wrote it and was going to record it in the studio. There it is folks. Mick Jagger !!

This song is not about just one ex-lover.
