“My Sharona” by the Knack – 1979

This week our pal Brandon Iron takes us on our first trip into the 70s with the 1979 number one song “My Sharona” by the Knack. In the late 70s heartfelt rock music was noticeably absent from pop music and the charts were dominated by disco. The Knack was an incredibly tight pop/rock band in the LA club circuit sitting on a riff so catchy that it could blow all of that to pieces… if only they could get a record deal. What superstar rock legend is responsible for the Knack being the subject of a record label bidding war? Which US president and protector of conservative values has this ode to chasing younger women on his iPod playlist? Who is Sharona and is it really just a coincidence that her name rhymes perfectly with bologna? All these question and more will be answered on this weeks episode of Singe File.
