Artist of the Week: Quiz #2

January 15, 2017


Awesome Artist of the Week logo by Sarca @ caughtmegaming

Artists of the Week (so far): Brian Eno


It’s time for the second edition of the Artist of the Week Quiz!

Last week’s Artist? Brian Eno.

The results of week 1 are listed on the right.


This week’s Artist? I thought you’d never ask!


Quiz Rules/Format
(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 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.

Here goes!

Verbalize the Positive

I appreciate that Danica @ Living a Beautiful Life always develops very interesting characters in her short stories. Even more impressive, she manages to set these scenes and introduce us to these people a very small amount of words!

  2. 500. A little better than last time. 🙂

  3. I was so excited by my score that I almost missed your shout out! Thank you so much, Geoff! I really appreciate it. 🙂

  4. Zack permalink

    I got 300.

  5. 400 for me (only because my first guess at 500 wasn’t the right answer, they formed in Ireland in 1969).

    • Thin Lizzy?
      400’s none too shabby too!

      • Yup, my first thought was Lizzy. Shoulda known they were a wee bit earlier, of course, but there ya go.

        Also, these days, the correct answer to this quiz is not my first thought for anything ever. 🙂

      • I don’t think you’re alone there Aaron!

  6. Boom! 500 this week, Geoff!

    • HMO, You’ll be pleased to hear a certain Canadian group has a song named 500 Up (but you already knew that)!

      • KICK AXE!!!! \m/ \m/

        Haha no, he means your other favourite Canadian band. The one we all know you love in your heart of hearts… Starts with S. Rhymes with “loan.”

      • And the 5-letter name can often be extended to include several extra “O”s!

      • That’s right, Scott! You go down to the bank, and you take out a “looooooo-ooooan! A looooo-ooooan!”

  7. 500! I didn’t think I would actually get one based on the first clue.

  8. Another for the 500 club. Yipee!

  9. 500 for the Old Metalhead!

  10. 500 points! Yes!!! Sunday’s always a beautiful day. 😉

  11. Wendy permalink

    500! Woot! I may never play again.

  12. Boom 500 ☇👊☇

  13. 500! I’d like to brag about it, but I think it only means that I don’t know too many bands that were formed in Ireland at the end of the 70s… 😉

    • Haha, my knowledge of artists meeting that criteria is also limited – well done!

      • I thought, perhaps, the Cranberries as well. I’m glad I went with the first thing that popped out of my head!

  14. Jenn permalink

    It was absolutely a guess at 500, but I definitely had the right answer at 500, so I guess that counts!

  15. Hooray. 500 points for me. “Boy” am I excited, but you should have saved this post for “October.” 😀 Hope I didn’t give anything away.

    • Rich – 500 is not a ‘bad’ score at all, ‘one’ might say it’s even ‘the sweetest thing!’

  16. I’ll go for 500 points this week.

  17. An educated – and right! – guess at 500 points for me! Confirmed at 300, though…

  18. 500 points! My advantage is that I’m working back from your most recent posts
