The Knack

Posted by shanoah on February 15, 2010

Well, I’d continue with rooftop concerts, but the Doug Fieger, lead singer of the Knack just died of cancer, and musician deaths usually take precedence over current themes. The Knack is best known for the song “My Sharona”. You know the one:

Ooh, my little hungry one, hungry one
Open up a package of my bologna

Or, well, maybe not. But Weird Al’s parody is the song I tend to think of. The Knack’s other big hit was a song called “Good Girls Don’t…”, which sites like Entertainment Weekly are playing the clean version of.

My thinking went along the line of ‘Well, if there’s a clean version, there must also be a dirty version. So I must hunt this version down and play it, for completeness.‘. So I am. The changed lyric was the line “‘Til she’s sitting on your face”, which became “When she puts you in your place.”. Clearly having her sitting on your face is preferable.

And obviously NSFW.
