    This and just who was Deep Throat have bothered me for years. And just with the revelation of who Deep Throat was - I am again disappointed. The inspiration was David Geffen. Does anyone know that name off the top of their head?

      She retracted her statement that Geffen was her inspiration.

    I am very impressed. Yes he was. Apparently he treated another singer better than Simon at some point in her career and that's what the song was about.

    Now if they would only unseal the JFK assasination files - I could really relax.

            no, I didn't mean that way. Geffen was giving more prominence to one of mitchells songs.

      I remember that was the rumor at the time that she did the song.

        rumors speculated either Jagger, James Taylor, Warren Beatty.

        songs like that are fun, it really is a great song.

    i'm a huge music follower nelle. yes, I think he was producer of the label that released the single. the other songwriter was joni mitchell.

    not sure we'll ever know the mystery of jfk. hmm

    Texan, who knows what's in those files that they sealed until a generation died. But the more I've read from reputable sources, the more intriqued I am.

    yeah, she had us all tricked. I had heard that a while back, but never knew for sure it was Geffen.
