You're So Vain - if you thought this was about you

You were so vain if you thought this song was about you!

This hit from Carly Simon started a three week run at the top of the US charts this week 40 years ago.

Four decades later, she finally admitted the favourite break up song was about Warren Beatty.

But only a verse was dedicated to that failed relationship.

Carly also confessed two other men were sung about as well.
