You Belong to Me

You Belong to Me

Oil on board

6x6 with black floater frame.


The first Carly Simon album my mom brought home was, You Belong To Me. It was 1978, and I was 8 years old. That album played over, and over, and over on our large wooden stero that took up half the wall in the family room. I can remember standing over the top of it to pick up the arm, and move the needle back to the beginning of the album. This song would smoothly come from the speaker under the turntable. At a young age, I wondered about the nuances of the song, and the meaning behind the hearfelt lyrics of the complexities of adult relationships. Music can give us such an amazing perpective just through its sounds and imagry of words.


"You don't have to prove to me that you're beautiful to strangers

Well I've got loving eyes of my own, of my own

And I can tell, I can tell darling

You belong to me"
