Songs like Buddy Holly’s Peggy Sue , Leonhard Cohen’s Suzanne, Beach Boys Barbara Ann and The Knack’s My Sharona wrote pop history. But who is behind these songs, that moved entire generations? We met the women who inspired Buddy Holly, Leonhard Cohen, Lou Reed, Bruce Springsteen and the Rolling Stones to their world hits. They tell us the story of these songs from their own personal perspective. They all became immortal and have great stories to tell.
