1980s

In 1980, Simon signed with Elektra sister label Warner Bros. Records. During a show in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania while touring to promote her album, Come Upstairs, Simon collapsed onstage of exhaustion. She subsequently largely retired from performing in the 1980s. She had a top 20 hit with the single, "Jesse", from that album. Simon also contributed the song "Be With Me" to the 1980 album In Harmony A Sesame Street Record produced by her sister Lucy and Lucy's husband, David Levine. Simon can also be heard on the song "In Harmony" along with other members of the Simon/Taylor families. Carly and Lucy contributed a "Simon Sisters" song called "Maryanne" to the 1982 follow-up album In Harmony 2, also produced by Lucy and her husband.

Torch (1981) was an album of melancholy standards reflecting her mood at the time. "Why" (1982), from the soundtrack to the 1982 movie Soup For One, was a hit single in the UK (but stalled at #74 in the US). She had another minor UK success with the single "Kissing With Confidence", a song off the 1983 album Dancing For Mental Health by Will Powers (actually Lynn Goldsmith). Simon was the uncredited singer of the song on the album. Still, few of her singles in the 1980s rose in the pop charts, although some did better among adult contemporary audiences. In 1983 she made her last album for Warner — Hello Big Man. That same year Simon performed on two albums, The Perfect Stranger by Jesse Colin Young (co-singing on the song "Fight For It" with Young) and Wonderland by Nils Lofgren (co-singing on the song "Lonesome Ranger" with Lofgren). By this time her sales were dropping and Warner discharged her. She signed with Epic Records in 1985 and made one album for them — Spoiled Girl. Because of its lacklustre sales, Epic dropped her.

During this time Simon successfully contributed to several film scores, including the songs "If It Wasn't Love" for Nothing In Common (1986), "Two Looking At One" for The Karate Kid, Part II (1986), "Coming Around Again" and "Itsy Bitsy Spider" for Heartburn (1987), and "Let the River Run" for Working Girl (for which she won the Academy Award for Best Song in 1988). The Working Girl soundtrack came out in 1989. In 1987 Simon signed with Arista Records. Her first album for them, Coming Around Again (1987), was a comeback album exemplified by the hit songs, "The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of", "Give Me All Night", "All I Want Is You" and the title track, "Coming Around Again" which wove in and out of the children's song "Itsy Bitsy Spider". The album was her first platinum release in nine years. These and older songs were featured in a picturesque HBO special set on Martha's Vineyard. Most of these songs were compiled for her 1988 album — Greatest Hits Live, her second greatest hits album. This album continued her comeback and was also certified platinum by the RIAA in 1996. She also wrote the theme songs to several movies, including "Something More" for the 1982 movie Love Child, "Someone Waits For You" for the 1984 movie Swing Shift, "All The Love In The World" for the 1985 TV movie Torchlight as well as "It's Hard To Be Tender" for the 1986 TV miniseries Sins and "Love Of My Life" for 1992's This Is My Life. In 1987, Simon sang "The Turn Of The Tide" for a Marlo Thomas TV special called "Free to Be . . . A Family". The song was later included on the 1988 album Free To Be . . . A Family.

    One of the downsides of the Internet is that misinformation stays up there forever. Whenever I do a search on "Carly Simon", I inevitably get a link to a story about you and Chrissie Hynde getting into a fight at a concert. So I'm wondering what really happened between you & Chrissie Hynde at the Fez several years ago when Joni Mitchell played there?


    Markly — Shoreline, Washington


    Well, Chrissie was a bit intoxicated and was yelling out during Joni's performance which needless to say, everybody wanted to hear. Chrissie was sitting right next to me and I asked her to be a little quieter. No one else would have dared say that to her, but me, stupid me, didn't know it was Chrissie.


    She started choking me in a loving way, saying: "you're great too Carly, get up there, you need to do this too". Very nice, the only problem being that it was right in the middle of Joni's song and people were looking at US. So I moved seats. That's all it was about. I must say that her choking me in 'fun intoxication' looked to a lot of the audience like a fight. It was not. I just couldn't believe that no one was interceding and saying anything to her. I love her music and respect her as an artist. It was just one of those things. Go figure.
