Carly Simon has adapted her hit 'You're So Vain' into an anti-Trump anthem



The song "You're So Vain" may not have been written about Donald Trump, but singer-songwriter Carly Simon thinks it applies to the Republican presidential nominee. 

Simon is so convinced that she repurposed the 1972 hit as an anti-Trump anthem. 

The repurposed version of the song appears in a new anti-Trump video from a Democratic super PAC.

This is the first time Simon has given permission for the song to be used in a political video, according to CBS News

The 2.5-minute video is full of clips of public figures denouncing Trump. 

Simon didn't really change much of the song, but she did dub over one line. 

Instead of singing, "your scarf, it was apricot," she sang, "your face, it was apricot." 

A representative for Simon told CNN that the singer is "alarmed" by the idea of Trump making it to the White House. 

Simon teamed up with Fred Goldring, who produced the pro-Obama will.i.am "Yes We Can" video in 2008, and entrepreneur Jon Vein. 

Simon told BS News she wanted to get her message out before the second presidential debate, which airs Oct. 9, at 9 p.m. ET.
