But the 's would produce so many life-and-death challenges that Carly Simon's palette of concerns - expressed in her songs - would give way to more primal issues.
Page - Carly Simon writes Love Of My Life Carly Simon's next album, the soundtrack for her friend Nora Ephron's directorial debut, This Is My Life about a single mother raising two daughtersgave her a minor hit 16 on the adult contemporary chart. Love of My Life came to her one night when Sally and Ben were going to bed.
As the youngsters strode to their bedrooms that night, Carly impulsively called out: Toward the end ofJim's inability to complete his novel after four years of effort - and four years of Carly supporting him, emotionally and financially - was eating away at their marriage. He gave up on the novel entirely. Despite being "madly in love" with each other, as he puts it, "When you marry a famous, relatively wealthy woman and you don't have money of your own, you're a bounder.
With any relationship that's this unbalanced, you both withstand a psychological barrage. Carly deeply missed the man who soothed her through her anxieties, and Jim wrote of now being "a spoon without a mate," aching "for your melody and musk Carly's mother, Andrea Simon, was diagnosed with lung cancer. Jim returned to Carly, while Carly cared for her mother on the Vineyard.Madeline "In Two Straight Lines" sing-a-long karaoke
Page - Carly Simon's song for her mother Carly Simon's relationship with her larger-than-life mother had always been complicated. One day before Andrea's cancer had been diagnosed Carly dashed off a lyric-metered letter to Andrea about the unresolved issue of Ronnie Klinzig.
She considered mailing the letter - but was stopped by a remembered bit of Andrea's advice: The wise demurral would inspire an album and title songLetters Never Sent.
Even as Andrea's cancer advanced, "she was still indomitable," Jim says. You've gotta do that! As turned toAndrea's prognosisdimmed.
Carly, Joey, Lucy, and Peter decided not to tell their mother she was dying. In February, she succumbed; Carly was at her bedside, and "I wanted to crawl under the covers with her and go back to the womb," she told a confidante.
Carly had a lunch for Jackie on April 14, - "the last day that Jackie was leading a normal life," says Joe Armstrong, who was present.
Carly said, "I have something for you," and she put a tape of a song, Touched By The Sun, into Jackie's hand, explaining that she had written it for her.
The song was about a woman living in proximity to greatness - as women of Jackie's and Andrea's era did - but also living daringly, even foolhardily.
Jackie, Joe Armstrong says, "was bowled over by Carly's song. They were on their knees, praying, in Joe's Upper West Side living room, when the phone rang. It was Marta, who'd been Caroline and John's nanny, saying, "Come right over. The Fifth Avenue apartment was mobbed with friends, but only women, and few of them, at that, were allowed into the bedroom.
A day or so later, Carly and Joe returned to the apartment - for Jackie's wake. She got married in to James Taylor - talk about uncool and stayed married for ten years. So the only thing in her favor is her actual musical ability, which is considerable: Her voice isn't particularly to my taste - a bit reedy, like a deeper-voiced Carole King but less personable - though it certainly has its admirers.
Simon abruptly disappeared from the charts afterbut has continued to record and sometimes tour. After this release, Lucy mostly retired from the music business, which is unfortunate for us: Can't quarrel with the lyrics, certainly, and arranger Sam Brown completely avoids Judy Collins-style pop bombast, using a spare background of woodwinds and other orchestral instruments no sweeping strings, folk touches like guitars and harmonica are used lightlyletting the sisters do most of the work - the disc has a passing similarity to the more traditional work of that other Simon.
The project is slight, perhaps, but extremely well rendered. If the rest of the album were near the same level of quality, this would be an astonishing debut, but it's not: Producer Eddie Kramerwho worked with several of the loudest rock bands of all time, couldn't get a handle on Simon's lighter sound, and many of the tracks have a generic pseudo-country feel "Alone".
Also, Simon didn't have enough of her own material to fill an album, and the outsider contributions include spectacular failures like Mark Klingman's "Just A Sinner," though Kramer cronie Buzzy Linhart 's peace and love anthem "The Love's Still Growing" is surprisingly credible.
There are other indications of Simon's writing talent "Reunions"but more in a "signs of things to come" way than in a "Whoa, let's listen to that one again" way. And, yes, a couple of songs are strongly reminiscent of contemporaneous Joni Mitchell numbers "Our First Day Together," "Three Days"but Simon's sensibility is sophisticated pop rather than hippie folk: But side two drags badly, starting with a flakey choir-equipped end-of-the-world number "Share The End"ending with a trite Kris Kristofferson tune "I've Got To Have You," the only song on the record Simon didn't write or co-writeand not much better in between the obvious "Julie Through The Glass".
The album went gold, and Simon stuck with the same sonic approach on her more successful follow-up. DBW No Secrets Simon's incisive lyrics, tuneful songwriting, and deceptively simple arrangements were all at their peak here. The first single - the catchy character assassination "You're So Vain" - and the album both went to 1, and the mellow, melodic "The Right Thing To Do" was also a major hit.
However, a number of other tracks are just as good, with telling details and ingenious rhymes "The Carter Family," "We Have No Secrets". Her first release after hooking up with James Taylorand he contributed "Night Owl," one of his patented silly animal songs with Bonnie BramlettDoris Troy and Paul and Linda McCartney on backing vocals that sounds totally out of place next to Simon's sharply-detailed love songs and introspection.

Richard Perry took over as producer, and brought in a high-powered cast: Simon, though, played piano or acoustic guitar on every one of her compositions. The childhood reminisces aren't as sharply detailed or as insightful, though they're still clever "Grownup," "Big Sister"and the songs with the most interesting lyrics "Misfit," "Think I'm Gonna Have A Baby" have the most predictable melodic development.
The gimmicky cover of the children's song "Mockingbird" a duet with Taylor sailed into the Top Ten, and the album followed. The other big single, "Haven't Got Time For The Pain" now a commercial jingleends with a dramatic Buckmaster orchestration that's easily the most moving part of the record.
We apologize for the inconvenience...
I would've rated this lower, but it's close enough to Simon's classic sound that big-time fans would probably still enjoy it. The attempts at mid-tempo cheer fall flat "Are You Ticklish," "Look Me In The Eyes"and the several songs with interesting lyrics have dull melodies: None of it fails, but the best cuts are still the ones where Simon sticks closest to her usual style: Though it's perfectly enjoyable if thin, sales dropped off quite a bit, and no single charted.
