Tra la la la la - la la la la!

photograph picture of sam's 16th birthday with a chocolate Pierrot CakeIt's time to share a photo from the (very old) archives. If I only knew then what I know now. If I only had the same young skin I had then, now. Sweet sixteen and I had a Pierrot decorating my cake (made for me by the manageress of the bread shop where I worked on Saturdays).



Here is a question, no prizes this time.
Guess who was on my cake the following year?
Clue - teenagers like music.
Answer will be revealed tomorrow.

    Michele sent me.

    My guess for the following year's cake...either Olivia Newton-John or Cyndi Lauper. (hard to judge the year there, that haircut was pretty common for quite a while!)

    my guess is the edge. the cake looks like someone is wearing a hat. he is always wearing a hat (although this may be a recent thing, i'm no u2 expert).

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM!


    I don't know for the cake, but you're very cute on that picture!

    OK, I've narrowed it down to:

    1 - Blondie
    2 - Depeche Mode
    3 - Yaz
    4 - ABBA

    (If I'm close, I'll tell you how I got there!)

    Oh, one more. Michael Jackson.

    But I've pretty much ruled out John Lennon, Spandau Ballet, Human League... but I think maybe it could still be Soft Cell... nah.

    It's also possible I've got your musical taste TOTALLY wrong, and it could be, you know, Diana Ross or something - but I don't think so.

    Anyway, my curiosity is CLEARLY piqued. Do give us the answer soon, please?

    OK, it's not too far a stretch from
    Pierrot to Culture Club.

    Happy Birthday!

    I'm with Molly...it has to be Duran Duran.

    Back up guess is Englebert Humperdink, but only because it makes me giggle to say his name...

    Happy birthday Sam. You're too young for Gary Glitter, so I'm guessing....Frankie goes to Hollywood. Robert Smith?

    mick jagger, kylie minogue, prince, i don't know. though it would probably have been easier for the baker if teenagers liked cartoons, like tom&jerry.

    Good guesses everyone. I had a laugh
    The following would have fitted:

    I used to be crasy about Blondie when I was 12. I didn't get into U@ until I saw them in my 30s.

    I am also a huge Depeche Mode fan.

    I liked Olivia NJ when I was 12 also, but it was really sad, I used to mimic Sandra Dee instead of her 'hot' look. Well, I was only 12.

    I don't even know who Rick Springfield is.

    I was stubborn about Duran Duran, preferring Spandau Ballet at the time. But now I love Duran Duran in retrospect.

    Michael Jackson - NO. Ramones, never. Abba - in restrospect only. Ramones - too American? Lennon and the Human League, I liked, Yaz, no, Soft Cell - not really.

    I actually saw Gary Glitter in concert when I was about 19. RObert Smith is cute, I saw him once at Glastonbury.

    Mick Jagger, he's ok, but I was never obsessed, Kylie is cute, but I am too old for her,

    True - Pierrot/Culture CLub is a good link - I am glad I didn't make it!

    I baked the cake myself, which is why no tom and Jerry!

    thanks everyone.

    -Sam
