Divad? Well, Then, Mystery Solved.

The revelation was stunning:

Then came the gut-wrenching denial.

Then further pouring of cold, cold water.

But just pretend for a second that you found Carly Simon’s diary from 1971, and it contained an entry like this:

May 1st
Wrote song about David. Called it “You Vain Prick”. Might remove the gavotte rhyme later. Too forced.
Screw you, David.

Yes, of course!  It was David Hume all the time!  Hence the later Carly Simon song Causes Can Be Determined From Effects.

See, it’s disappointing no matter which David it is.  A song explicated is a song ruined.
