“We’re doing a sequel…And everybody knows, The sequel’s never quite as good”
– The Muppets, We’re Doing a Sequel

With the weekly quizzes, it’s true, the Sunday quizzes will be back for a sequel.

And in terms of my questions, chances are that the above statement will also be true & my quiz questions will be somewhat inferior this year.

However, the above statement could not be more false with regard to the new logo by Sarca.

Her logo from last year was exemplary, this year her logo is equally exemplary!!

.

Ready for Quiz #1

To quote OK GO, here it goes, here it goes, here it goes again!

.

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 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!

  1. I’m pocketing 500 here! Yas!

  2. 500 for me, 500 for Mika.

  3. 500 points

    One of my all-time favorite bands

  4. Zack permalink

    500. Great way to phrase that question.

  5. 500, I am however not going to be smug.

  6. 500. No Foxtrot is disappointing

  7. 500. It’s a little disappointing that there’s no Foxtrot, but all of their albums between 1971’s Nursery Cryme and 1976’s A Trick of the Tail are great.

    • Well played!
      And interesting to read they had a 5-year window of excellence – I bet that’s a common timeframe for bands at their peak

      • We’ve had this conversation before, right? Like a lot of other bands, they lost a couple of key members and were less interesting.

      • I think we have – but first time this band I think has entered the conversation!

  8. An easy 500! Got my quiz year off to the best start.

  9. 500 from the Land of Confusion!

    Excellent Logo as always Sarca!

  10. 500. Good start to the quiz year!!

  11. I’ll start the year with 500.

  12. jprobichaud permalink

    I’m at 500 with the rest of ‘em. I’m not sure I even read the other clues. Can’t say I was a big fan though, just that I am well aware of the solo work of both Peter and Phil.

    • Much like Phil’s ‘no jacket required’ – no additional clues required for you today JP!

      • jprobichaud permalink

        Haha! True story. Against all odds, I’ve got a perfect score to start the year.

      • You’ve shown your true colours this morning!

      • jprobichaud permalink

        Haha! Ouch!

  13. Was this starter question deliberately made easy? I’ll be having 500 points, thank you very much.
    As for the logo, a very Reevesian WHOA. I might just get it printed on a t-shirt.

  14. Easy 500! Smashing logo!

  15. Nice to see the quiz back with s 500 for me!

  16. 500! And smashing logo lol

  17. In The Beginning, there was 500 points for meeee!

    • A fine score Aaron – and you’ve got some company in first place, for now at least!

      • Well, so long as your lovely wife doesn’t make any more babies before December, I may just shoot for first place this year! Hahaaaaa! 🙂

      • Haha – at the moment you folks are tied, so far no bonus points have been awarded!

  18. Great work on the logo yet again, Sarca!

  19. Vibrant logo Sarca. Nicely done!
    The musical box opened up 500 points.

    • As per usual Bruce, you deliver the right word at the right time – the logo is rather vibrant!

  20. Yaaayyy, you’re back. And Yaaayyy, 500.

  21. 500 for me.

  22. 400 here! Not a huge fan of this band so I didn’t realize it was them at 500 as I have only known Phil as the lead singer.

  23. Love the new logo. I’ll go for 500 points for the week.
