The Knack – My Sharona (1979)

Background

«Vederla è stato come essere colpiti alla testa con una mazza da baseball, mi sono subito innamorato di lei, e quando è successo ha scatenato qualcosa e ho iniziato a scrivere un sacco di canzoni febbrilmente in un breve lasso di tempo», ha raccontato Doug Fieger, cantante dei Knack.

Una canzone davvero nata da un colpo di fulmine “My Sharona“, istantaneo successo che ha portato la band da un giorno all’altro in cima alle classifiche di mezzo mondo. Ma andiamo per ordine. Nel 1975 Doug Fieger ha da poco formato The Knack insieme all’amico chitarrista Berton Averre, e stanno cominciando a suonare in giro nei club di Los Angeles incidendo dei demo per trovare un contratto discografico.

Un giorno Fieger, che è da tempo fidanzato, accompagna la sua ragazza a fare shopping, e mentre lei prova degli abiti lui resta letteralmente fulminato dalla vista di una giovane studentessa di 17 anni, Sharona Alperin, che lavora nel negozio. Anche Sharona è impegnata con un ragazzo, ma Doug, come in una favola, se ne innamora a prima vista e sotto gli occhi della fidanzata la invita ad andare a vedere un suo concerto. Anche Sharona non resta indifferente, e anni dopo dichiarerà: «Dal momento in cui Doug e io ci siamo incontrati per la prima volta, le nostre vite sono cambiate per sempre.

È raro che due persone abbiano un tale impatto l’una sull’altra. Il legame che abbiamo condiviso è qualcosa di cui farò tesoro finché vivrò, avrà sempre un posto speciale nel mio cuore». Insomma sembra davvero l’idillio perfetto, se non fosse per la differenza d’età e per il non trascurabile particolare che entrambi sono già impegnati in una relazione! Poco dopo Fieger e la fidanzata si lasciano, così il ragazzo dichiara il suo amore a Sharona, incurante del fatto che lei sia ancora fidanzata e che vada spesso a vedere i concerti della band insieme al suo ragazzo.

La situazione comincia a diventare pesante quando Fieger inizia a scrivere canzoni su di lei e a suonarle in pubblico. Berton Averre aveva composto il riff di chitarra di quella che poi diverrà “My Sharona” già alcuni anni prima di entrare nella band. A Fieger piace molto e una sera in 15 minuti scrive il testo e insieme all’amico elabora la struttura e la melodia. Inizialmente Averre non è d’accordo sul fatto di citare esplicitamente Sharona nella canzone, ma Fieger si impunta, vuole che sia un’espressione diretta dei suoi sentimenti, e alla fine il chitarrista è costretto a cedere di fronte alla forza dell’amore. In un’intervista al Washington Post, Doug Fieger ha detto: «Avevo 25 anni quando ho scritto la canzone, ma è stata scritta dal punto di vista di un ragazzo di 14 anni: è solo una onesta canzone su un quattordicenne innamorato».

“My Sharona” viene inclusa nel primo album della band Get the Knack e viene pubblicata come singolo il 18 giugno del 1979, raggiungendo subito il primo posto della classifica di Billboard dove rimase per sei settimane risultando il singolo più venduto dell’anno. Arriva prima in classifica anche in Canada per tre settimane, in Australia per cinque settimane ed in Italia dove diventa un vero tormentone estivo nel 1980, ed entra nella Top 10 in Inghilterra, Francia, Nuova Zelanda e Svizzera.

Il gruppo viene assurdamente presentato come i “nuovi Beatles”, i componenti vengono vestiti come i Fab Four, ottenendo così solo il risultato di indisporre la critica. La bella Sharona compare anche sulla copertina del singolo. Atre due canzoni dell’album sono dedicate a lei, e alla fine la ragazza capitola e inizia una relazione con Fieger che durerà quattro anni, finché lo stile di vita sregolato e la dipendenza dall’alcool del cantante la porteranno ad allontanarsi da lui. Dopo un lungo periodo di riflessione Sharona e Doug si ritroveranno e diventeranno amici, e la ragazza sarà con il cantante l’ultima settimana della sua vita: Doug Fieger è morto di cancro il 14 febbraio 2010. Nel 1994 Quentin Tarantino avrebbe voluto usare la canzone in una scena di “Pulp Fiction” ma Fieger, dopo qualche trattativa, rifiutò.Gli Knack hanno inciso altri due album e altri tre dopo la reunion del 1991, ma non sono mai riusciti a bissare quell’enorme successo.

Simply Red – Infidelity (1987)

Un bel personaggino. Bei vestiti, belle donne, bella faccia da schiaffi, bella voce, bellissimo talento per la musica e per la creatività. E d’altra parte, nel maggio del 1987 quando uscì con questa canzone, Mick Hucknall era ormai già più personaggio dei Simply Red (ma del resto tutto il gruppo prendeva il nome dal suo soprannome, per capirci). E forse non era ancora neppure all’apice del suo successo! Erano passati […]
