I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it!

Quiz Rules/Format
(Same as last year, feel free to skip to the quiz if you know the rules already)

Your Task: Name the mystery Artist, ideally with as few clues as possible.

Correctly guess the artist on the first clue? 500 points.

After scrolling down to the second clue? 400 points.

Still don’t know after the fifth clue? 0 points, but a crisp high-five for participating.

I’ll use google translate to put the correct answer at the bottom in Arabic (if you read Arabic, that’s fantastic, but no cheating by reading ahead!) and you can translate it back to the language of your choice to confirm your answer.

In addition to eternal bragging rights, the winner at the end of the year may even get something as prestigious as a digital certificate.

Second…

a) Enjoy the Silence, what a track!

b) I’ve had this post scheduled since early April. When I learned this week that band member Andy Fletcher passed away, I contemplated delaying this quiz.

And then I remembered what Jemaine Clement said on the week that David Bowie died:

“it’s sad to lose Bowie, but it’s beautiful to think millions of people across the universe are listening to his music right now.’”

The same would be apply here: sad that Andy Fletcher is gone & at the same time, encouraging to think of how many people are revisiting his music this week.
