The Chic Makeover
by Wax Poetics
Singer-songwriter Carly Simon had a prolific career during the 1970s with thirteen Top 40 hits, including “Anticipation” and “You’re So Vain.”
In 1978, Simon teamed with producer Arif Mardin and created Boys in the Trees, spawning a few blue-eyed-soul gems like “Tranquillo,” cowritten by her then husband James Taylor.
The year before, Simon had cowritten “You Belong to Me” with Michael McDonald for the Doobie Brothers’ now classic Livin’ on the Fault Line. She recorded the song herself with great success, charting at number six on the pop charts.
In 1982, Simon got a Chic makeover with Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards producing the track “Why” for the soundtrack to the film Soup for One. The 12-inch vinyl is by far Simon’s most coveted jam by DJs in the know.
