A big defintely for Carly Simon getting into the Hall Of Fame.:)

I'm not sure how you can induct James Taylor and leave out Carly Simon.
Posted by A-Killa on Friday, 08.24.07 @ 13:27pm
I agree she should be in there with him.

I bet she thinks the Hall of Fame is about her. Doesn't she, doesn't she?

Carly Simon without a doubt should be in the rock & roll hall of fame by now as well as Linda Ronstadt and Heart too!

How can you put in a complete bore like Bonnie Raitt and snub the much more talented Carly Simon? Carly's music resonated throughout stadiums bringing excitement to all. Raitt's music resonated best in elevators.

Say, that is true about Bonnie Raitt. She's a fantastic guitar player, expecially in blues, but she really is kinda boring.

Eligible since 1996 and never even considered? Shame on you Hall of Fame voters . . . shame, shame, shame . . .

I'm surprised she's never even been considered. She should already have been in.

Matt Love...she's been eligible since 1996. Don't hold your breath...

The only reason Carly Simon has no been inducted is because the voting bloc has a bias against women artists. There are so few women that have been inducted and who deserve to be. Carole King, Pat Benatar, Heart, Linda Rondstadt, Diana Ross (solo) Tina Turner (solo) Joan Jett, Connie Francis, Melanie, the Go Go's and yes Carly Simon. It's a crime that these voters don't value what these amazing artists have contributed to rock and roll music.

I like Carly Simon- but as she hasn't been considered since becoming eligible, I wouldn't count on it, either.

Carly Simon is the daughter of publishing giant Richard Simon of Simon & Schuster.

I've listened to Carly Simon for years, and she is in my Top 10 list of artists/bands that 'should have been in the R&RHOF by now'. I agree with the above comments, except for the one about how the Hall is against women. Although its partly true because of the fact Patti Smith and Blondie are in the Hall, but some of those other female hitmakers probably won't get in (or at least not right away). And because of her similarities and connections to James Taylor, I'm shocked she's not in already. I know if she does indeed get nominated, the majority will put her in.

I'm not sure the Hall is all that biased against women...this might be news to Aretha Franklin, the Supremes, Joni Mitchell, Grace Slick, Crissie Hynde, Patty Smith, and half of Abba, among others.

One interesting tidbit about Carly Simon: she is the first, and only one of two, to win a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Golden Globe for the same song, "Let the River Run" (from the movie, "Working Girl").

she is sexy clothes on

this singing deva goddess should be in..

The inductions of Rush, Heart and Randy Newman will increase the chances of Carly Simon being nominated, if not inducted outright in the not too distant future.
Posted by Enigmaticus on Tuesday, 02.5.13 @ 09:08am
Carly Simon being inducted before Carole King in the performers category would be so wrong.
Posted by Roy on Tuesday, 02.5.13 @ 09:16am
She didn't do on purpose, but she did embarrass Jann Wenner in a movie where she was in a scene with him (and John Travolta) He holds a grudge.
Posted by Bemylove on Monday, 02.18.13 @ 20:00pm
Which movie are you talking about?
Posted by Roy on Monday, 02.18.13 @ 21:18pm
I find it extremely disappointing that Carly Simon has not been inducted yet. She has deserved this honor for the past 17 years, let's get her in next year!
Posted by Enigmaticus on Thursday, 05.16.13 @ 00:41am
Carly Simon deserves to be inducted for writing "You're So Vain," "Anticipation," "Jesse" and "Let The River Run." Of course, I am surprised that no one has listed "No Secrets" as her essential album. :-(
Posted by Enigmaticus on Sunday, 08.18.13 @ 23:44pm
With the recent inductions of Randy Newman, Cat Stevens, and yes, Linda Ronstadt (even though she did not write her own songs), the absence of Carly Simon is disheartening. Carly Simon has a five decade long career of excellence.

Anticipation * You Belong To Me * That's The Way I Heard It Should Be * Haven't Got Time For The Pain * You're So Vain * Nobody Does It Better * Let The River Run * Coming Around Again

James Taylor is in as a performer. Paul Simon is in as a solo artist and as a member of Simon & Garfunkel. Laura Nyro is in posthumously. Carole King is in as a songwriter. Cat Stevens is in the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. Linda Ronstadt is in as a performer, for singing other people's songs.

The fact that Carly Simon has not been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, as of yet, is still quite disheartening. Of course, the fact that Jim Croce has not yet been inducted is also an egregious omission, as well.

Carly Simon is one of my favorite songwriters of all time. She definitely deserves induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
Posted by Enigmaticus on Sunday, 10.5.14 @ 14:30pm
It is quite encouraging to see Roger Friedman supporting Carly Simon's induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. By the way, I would like to wish Carly a very Happy Birthday!

Along with Chicago, I have been familiar with the music of Carly Simon for well over 4 decades. My appreciation of Carly Simon's music goes back farther than even my first exposure to "progressive

Of all of the female singer/songwriters who have not been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, I like Carly Simon and Helen Folasade Adu, aka Sade, the best. They are followed by Carole King (previously inducted as a songwriter), Stevie Nicks (previously inducted as a member of Fleetwood Mac), Grace Slick (previously inducted as a member of Jefferson Airplane), Pat Benatar, Kate Bush, Tracy Chapman, Suzanne Vega and Alicia Keys.
Posted by Enigmaticus on Sunday, 08.23.15 @ 12:29pm
In my honest opinion, Carly Simon is unquestionably one of the greatest singer/ songwriters of all time. She has been inducted into the Songwriter's Hall Of Fame.
Posted by Enigmaticus on Saturday, 09.5.15 @ 06:44am
How is Laura Nyro in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame but Carly Simon isn't!?

It's absurd that she's not in the Hall of Fame. Huge credentials. Did the committee forget how to spell her name??? C A R L Y S I M O N .

Among the list of greatest singer/ songwriters, Carly Simon has been mentioned frequently. She had even been previously inducted into the Songwriter's Hall Of Fame.
