The Knack, ‘My Sharona’ – Disturbing Songs People Love

The Knack My Sharona
Capitol

A guy walks into a store and instantly falls in love with the girl behind the counter — what’s so disturbing about that?

Well, for one thing, the real-life girl at the center of the Knack’s smash hit ‘My Sharona’ was only 17, a fact referenced in rather Prince-ly detail in the lyrics: “Never gonna stop, give it up, such a dirty mind / I always get it up for the touch of the younger kind.” Didn’t realize those were the words you and your friends were dancing along to, huh?

Now, to be fair, Knack singer Doug Fieger was only 25 at the time, and the couple — that’s her, Sharona Alperin, on the single’s cover — ended up dating for several years.
