C is for Carly

There’s a quote in the movie Little Black Book that always makes me laugh, because it it’s somewhat true:

“She believed that all problems could be solved by listening to Carly Simon.”

I don’t know if problems could be solved just by listening, but I do believe Carly’s discography is the soundtrack of life and love. And why shouldn’t it be? She’s known her that head-over-heels-madly-truly-deeply love and she’s been the victim of heartbreak. Through it all, she kept her grace and strength. And turned her experiences into soulful melodies.

I just love Carly Simon.

Want to set your life to music? Try this soundtrack:

Going on your first date with that guy (or gal) you’ve had your eye on? Anticipation (video)

Found someone who is everything you could ever want in a lover? Nobody Does It Better (video)

Scared of commitment? That’s the Way I’ve Always Heard It Should Be (video)

Someone moving into your territory? You Belong to Me (video)

Find out your lover is really a two-timing snake? You’re So Vain (video)

Reeling from a bad break-up? Why (video)

Moving on? Haven’t Got Time for the Pain (video)

Finally found “The One”? You’re the Love of My Life (video)

Want something for your children? Into White (Carly’s album of folk songs for children)

Relationship fallen into a rut? Coming Around Again and The Stuff Dreams are Made Of (video)

Wonder if you should follow your dreams? Let the River Run (video)

Ok, so that last one could apply to your love life or following your passion. But see, that’s the beauty of Carly. You can find a song in her repertoire to fit just about any occasion.

This is my favorite Carly song

  2. Wonderful A to Z post! I find it interesting to listen to Carly’s songs now that I’m married and have children. I can enjoy the songs on much deeper levels than I could experience when I was in school.
