The 101 song of the day was written by a woman who intended to be a journalist and she thought that none other than Mick Jagger would be a great first interview. That’s not what happened but what did – became one of rock and roll’s greatest mysteries.
She met with Jagger and the two soon became good friends and once that happened she abandoned her idea of an interview because she felt she’d lost her objectivity. Before long she returned to the job she had in college – singing. And when she recorded the song you’re about to hear, Mick came by the studio to hang out and wound up doing back up vocals. By January 7th, 1973 the record was number one in America and to this day, people speculate who it is about – Here’s your 101 number one song of the day from Carly Simon (You’re So Vain)
