Biography

Prior to singing with the Simon Sisters, beginning at the beginning of my life, things were fairly quiet. Lucy, Joey and I sang throughout our childhood's, first in Greenwich Village (where I was kicked out of family choir for being obstreperous and willful), and then at our lovely homes in Riverdale, NY and Stamford, Connecticut. We sang as a trio, and then Lucy and I began singing in ... Read more in Amazon's Carly Simon Store

"This Is My Life" is a case where a great soundtrack strengthened a mediocre film with strong music scoring and one of the most beautiful and poignant love songs written, "Love of My Life".
Written as a love song to her children, Carly Simon has composed a simple yet sublime melody and lyric that bookends this unique and thematic soundtrack and provides the major motivation of the movie's central character. Though never commercially popular, those who've seen the movie comment on the lovely love song that weaves throughout the film.
"Back the Way" provides duality in view points, both from the adult and children and the use of ukelele keeps it playful and personal.
"The Night Before Christmas" should become a contemporary holiday classic. Carly's strong vocal, a lush arrangement and sweet children voices provide the background support to a strong cut which has also been beautifully covered by Amy Grant on her first Christmas collection.
The only unqualified disappointment is "The Show Must Go On", Carly's failed attempt at a theatrical song. The song is whimsical and clever but the vocal and arrangement never quite gel and it becomes increasingly tedious to the end.
Overall, Oscar winning Carly and often professional partner Frank Filipetti have produced a unique and engaging soundtrack that should satisfy most discerning listeners.

On "this is My lif" Carly Simon gts in touch with the skill that made her famous ... painting a vrbal picture of everyday life on the verge of the extraordinary. The album shows a great longing on the part of the characters it is representing It can be derived that Ms Simon has befriended her fictional subjects. She understands the longing behind there laughter on the track "Bak the Way" where ms simos muses "Back the way it was before, Before the door was broken". In this work Ms Simon has shown her loyal fans that the preparation is still there and the skill still backs it.

My mom made a tape for my 13th birthday. The first song on it was Love Of My Life from Carly Simon. It describes our relationship perfectly. Now at 17, I still listen to that song and The Night Before Christmas. Moving Day is quite moving also. The first song describes the wonderful relationship between the parents and the daughter.

This CD is one of the best soundtracks ever recorded.I can't understand why a fantastic song like,"Love of my Life," wasn't played by all the radio stations. Thank God Delilia is playing this song almost every night on her radio program. People are asking her to play this song to show how much they love there children. "The night before Christmas," is played every year at Christmas,and was on Amy Grants Christmas CD. "Back the Way" is my favorite.It reminds me of my childhood,and how you want things to be the way they were. This record never even made it to the top 200 in Billboard. What a dissapointment this must be for a great artist like Carly,to work her behind off every time,and not get played by the closed minded radio stations. Thank God for Delilia

The only good thing about this CD, for me, is it's sentimental value... given to me by my mom because of the first song's message. Unfortunately, it's not catchy, and none of the songs on the CD are really. It's quite disappointing.
