For somebody with such a simple name, Carly Simon is an absolute dynamo in the music industry. Her music falls under pop/soft rock and features vocals, guitar, and piano. Lets swiftly check out her stats: 24 Billboard Hot 100 charting singles, 2 Grammys, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and a No. 1 album. Simon peaked at her third album No Secrets with her most popular song "You're So Vain". She is considered one of the best songwriters of the 70's. Interestingly, her father co-founded the book publishing company Simon & Schuster, and was a pianist. The apple does not fall far from the tree.
