Most pop songs are about the generic concept of love. But some songs go one step further, highlighting aspects of a particular person – usually in code to keep things discreet.
You’re So Vain is apparently about bewildered envelope-fumbler-to-the-stars, Warren Beatty. Paul Simon in his song Graceland has a verse about Carrie Fisher. And I found out this week that Spandau Ballet’s True was written about Altered Images warbler-in-chief, Clare Grogan.
The last fact seems to have passed me by. Are there any others I should know about?
