His Friends Are More Than Fond Of Robin

(Carly Simon)

Flip side to “You’re So Vain” is about a personality who is the flip side of that song’s subject:  A self-effacing person, genuinely bemused by his own popularity, with whom the singer may or may not be in love.  In fact, the relationship is vague, as it may just be a platonic love, but Robin, whoever he is, seems to be the bee’s knees.
