4Ever songs: The Knack ‘My Sharona’

The Knack
 was an American Power Pop rock quartet based in Los Angeles that rose to fame with their first single, “My Sharona“, an international number one hit in 1979.

“My Sharona” by The Knack was an ode to a raven-haired teenager with a wonderfully unique name, Sharona Alperin, and a great, catchy pop tune fueled by a lot of angst and longing. It also was a song that developed an incredible life of its own, living on for decades after The Knack fell apart in the early ’80s.
