Ready for Quiz #14?

Alright, Alright, Alright!


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

This artist provides an argument in favour of never retiring. When he performed in Kingston at age 80 or so, the reviews I heard were overwhelmingly positive!


From → Uncategorized

  1. Man, if I didn’t get 500 on this one, I’d have been asleep at the wheel.

    In fact, 1000 for me ‘cos I love this so much! 🙂

  2. Ford Fairlane 500.

  3. Zack permalink


  4. 500 and I am quite proud that is the only Cobain lyric I can recognize and I have no idea why.

  5. 300. Slow and steady wins the race.

  6. He might be in “just about every Hall Of Fame” but he’s not in the HMO Hall of Fame so… 100 for me. 😦

  7. 500 from me!

  8. Don’t know my Nirvana lyrics as well as I could (diction, Curt, diction!) but managed 400.

    • Haha, he must have skipped an elocution class or two!
      I quite like Weird Al’s ‘smells like Nirvana’ where he sings “it’s hard to bargle nawdle zouss” as a verse lyric, having fun with said lack of diction!

  9. 400! Same as Bruce — don’t know Kurt’s lyrics well.

    • I think I only knew these ones as it was a slower track – otherwise they’re not always the most decipherable!

  10. 300 only because of my post in 2016 of people who died.

    • One of the many greats who passed away last year – I’m sure a couple more from your 2016 list will be featured here soon

  11. 400! I missed last week, so better get this in!

  12. 500! Having reviewed Nirvana’s Unplugged album recently, the lyric was fresh in my mind.

    • Nice work Ovidiu – your recent post was probably what brought the quote to mind for me when making the quiz!

  13. 300 for me Geoff….

  14. 200 this time.

  15. A lowly 100 for me this week, as my brain is a bit distracted. I feel like a bird who just fell off a wire.

  16. 400 for me Geoff….the “Songs” clue was the give away

    • Nice work Geoff – I’d argue one of his early ‘songs’ albums might be in that exclusive 9/10 group!

  17. 400! One of my very favourite artists…

  18. My favourite, 500 for me.

  19. 400! Somehow I missed Cobain’s quote, even if I’ve listened to Nevermind very often. Looking forward to your post about this particular artist of the week 🙂

  20. 300 this week
