The song “Sixteen Candles” was released in 1958. It was written by Luther Dixon and Allyson R. Khent and it was performed by The Crests. Interesting bit of trivia, on of the members of The Crests, Patricia Van Dross, is the older sister of Luther Vandross.
My daughter and I were at a 16th birthday party today. Why were a middle aged lady and a seven year old were invited to a 16th birthday? Your guess is as good as mine! But we went and had a great time with the other middle aged ladies and young children who were also inexplicably invited. I hope the birthday teen had as much fun as we did. If not, perhaps the stacks of cash that come with having old people at your party will be sufficient to ease the pain.
