Mashup: The Beatles’ “Paperback Writer” and The Knack’s “My Sharona”

August 14th, 2014

New classic-rock mashups are created every 3.66666666677777 seconds, it seems.

In fact, here’s a brand-new one, posted just last month!

It’s a pretty decent mish-mash of a 1966 Beatles classic, “Paperback Writer,” and the Knack’s biggest hit, 1979’s “My Sharona.” The creator of the mashup, Go Home Productions, even made a video to go with it, and you can check it out below. I keep thinking that guy in the Knack is the Kinks’ Ray Davies. It isn’t.

If nothing else, you get to hear Berton Averre’s brilliant “My Sharona” guitar solo!

For more mashup fun, head in this general direction.

    super well-done! however the Knack also had a hit with “Good Girls Don’t [but I do]”

  • Jason Cabanaw

    Good Girls Don’t was a great single. That whole album had the sexual charge of a 17 year old kid. Check out The Knack – Live at Carnegie Hall – awesome.
