An old mystery solved: My Sharona

I probably should have sorted this out a long time ago, but it turns out there actually is a person called Sharona behind the Knack hit song "My Sharona". Perhaps not overly surprisingly, she now sells real estate in Los Angeles. You can see the (SFW) single cover featuring Sharona here.

I saw the Knack in concert back when I was in high school. People thought (and wrote - I wish I still had the Seattle Times concert review) they were going to be the next Beatles. To encourage such thinking, they performed "Hard Days Night" as their encore. As it turned out, they fizzled after their second album.
