Artists of the Week (so far): Genesis


My thanks to all who have participated in the “Artist of the Week” quizzes so far.

Congrats to all those who correctly identified Genesis last week.

The results after 1 week (as of Thursday):




Ready for Quiz #2

To quote the Gin Blossoms, let’s play two!


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!

    500. I always wondered how to spell his name in Arabic.

  2. 400. And only from years of browsing the damn book, not from any knowledge of the fella’s music. However, no cheap shots about his stage name.

  3. 500. I’m on fire!

  4. Woop! 500 for me again…

  5. Aargh, 200 for me. Hardly surprising since I only know him from a Thomas the Tank Engine mash up.

  6. 400. And I am not a hip hop fan so this is good for me.

  7. 400 as that album was everywhere …..
    I will Die With My Boots On tryin to Get Rich!

    • Stellar work Deke – hope you’re enjoying the new LPs from Lauren this weekend, some solid records in there!
