Artist of the Week: New Series & Practice Quiz!

January 7, 2017

Awesome Artist of the Week logo by Sarca @ caughtmegaming

.

A new year, yet another magnificent Sarca creation!

And speaking of community, inspired by many marvelous features on many other splendid sites (including, but most definitely not limited to, Aaron’s Sunday Services, Bruce’s Album Cover Quizzes, Mike’s Lego Quizzes….), in 2017, I’d like to host a weekly “Artist of the Week” Quiz.

To maximize the fun, an extensive list of the rules!

.

.

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 the comments, please enter your POINTS earned (not the artist name) and I’ll keep track of the running totals in a spreadsheet.

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

Ready for the PRACTICE round before the competition begins tomorrow?

Here goes!

Verbalize the Positive

I appreciate Fyfeopedia‘s artist profiles & album ratings. It’s fun to compare notes on artists that I’m quite familiar with (R.E.M.) and helpful to read about ideal starting points for newer-to-me artists (John Cale).

    Cool idea. And thanks for the link! Man, I haven’t done a Sunday Service in a loooong time…

    Thanks for the shout out!

    I got 500, but the video at the top was a bit of a clue.

  4. 300 for me. Canada is quite a way from Aus.

  5. 400 for me, not too bad for a non-Canuck… a Can’tuck?

  6. Is it Celine Dion ?

  7. Not as familiar with them, so 200 for me. I recognized the band at that point. Even though I had suspicions with the video

  8. 500 👌

    • A perfect score, well deserving of the “A-OK” emoji!

      • Lol, just got a new Samsung tablet for xmas with an upgraded OS, so some fresh emojis will be coming to a comment box near you…again! 🤓

  9. Zack permalink

    400. Pretty good for an American.

    • Not too shabby at all Zack!

        I’ve learned a lot about Canadian culture from blogging. I can actually name 2 hockey players now. That’s twice as many as most.
