    ... at least for the ladies, then I don't know what else should be.

    Here's the story. Cleaning out my car no. 2 last weekend I found this old tape in the glovebox. Happens all the time that I lose stuff and don't find it until years later (I can live with that as long as there's nothing classified going lost). It was a tape of a few of Carly Simon's greatest hits, recorded during a concert some time during the late 80s, I believe. However, side B of it revealed her song All I want is you (this is the song, actually mounted over the video of her Coming 'round again, so afficionados please stop complaining before you even start). I haven't heard, neither really listened to it in years, which might explain that I never contributed it in the matching threads.

    For all those who don't like YouTube, are too lazy to make out the words, or have a slow connection, I'll post the lines below.

    Carly Simon:All I Want Is You

    From LyricWiki

    Jump to: navigation, search

    This song is performed by Carly Simon. (Carly Simon/Jacob Brackman/Andy Goldmark)

    What do the neighbors say
    When they hear us scream at night
    Do they talk about a love
    All in tatters

    What do the neighbors know
    About the heart and soul
    The fire down below
    That really matters

    They can never guess
    In the silences
    That all I want is you
    And the sexy hurricane we got here

    All I want is you
    I don't want a man who says
    Good morning, dear, no, no

    All I want is you
    All that I want is you
    All I want is you
    Nobody else but you

    Let 'em listen at the door
    Let 'em listen through the floor
    Let 'em go ahead and draw
    The wrong conclusion

    So chase me 'round the room
    Make me crazy like the moon

    They can never guess
    In the silences
    That all I want is you
    And the sexy hurricane that we share
    (We share, yeah)

    All I want is you
    I don't want a man who
    Tiptoes up the stairs
    No, I don't

    All I want is you
    All that I want is you
    All I want is you
    Nobody else, no one but you

    They can never guess
    In the silences
    That all I want is you
    (All I want is you)
    And the sexy hurricane that we share

    All I want is you
    I don't want a man who
    Tiptoes up the stairs
    He's gonna fall

    All I want is you
    And your freight train
    Whistling over my track, oh, oh

    All I want is you
    And your Mack truck loving
    Jumping me, Jack
    Oh, Jack

    All I want is you....

    So, decide for yourself. If this isn't a LPSG theme song, I don't know what else.

    I don't know, sometimes it should be Carly Simon's "You're So Vain" or "Anticipation".

    Good choice, Claire...I just listened to this song and this CD yesterday by my girl Carly! Don't forget that the backing vocals are by none other than legend Roberta Flack! :wink:

    I'm a huge Carly fan and this is one of her best! The whole CD is great.

    Here's a video made by another devoted fan (with a lot of free time on his hands!) so people can hear her singing it:

    Enjoy!

    I have seen that movie, but I didn't like it that much. LOL me scrutinizing self-edited videos is like I was trying to tell a chef how to improve his cooking, but this edition of the video clearly lacks some double-thinking and subtility. However, good to meet another Carly fan.

    Why? Only because "You're So Vain" is said to be a revenge on Warren Beatty, who's rumored to be another King Dong?
