The Knack, “My Sharona”
This one-hit wonder was penned by Knack frontman Doug Fieger after he met a lovely 16-year-old girl named Sharona Alperin. Apparently deciding “loving from afar” wasn’t his thing, Fieger struck up a relationship with the underage beauty that ended up lasting four years. Alperin, who was also featured on the single’s cover art, is now a successful real estate agent in L.A. —Jeff Royer
