Ready for Quiz #4?

Without a trace of irony, I’m a fan of this artist!

.

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!

Verbalize the Positive

When Team Canada won the 1987 Canada Cup, The Greatest Love of All was played frequently in the dressing room to help motivate the players.

It worked!

  1. 400. Wasn’t it good…?

  2. A shamefaced 400.

  3. 500 because I had that first album from Columbia House and wow. Think I have the LP here still to this day. Also, that bathing suit picture didn’t suck either.

    • My sis had the tape – I know the picture.

    • I think many of the early CDs in my collection were through Columbia House/BMG, nice score!

      • Most of my tapes as a kid were from CH/BMG. Never got any vinyl from them though…

      • Alas it was all tapes & CDs from them for me too – if a vinyl club like that started up now (with the 12 for 1 cent intro hook), that could be interesting!

      • Wow would it ever! I think I heard someone say that LPs from them weren’t the best quality, though? Maybe they could fix that… all 180g LPs! Go go go!

    Only 300 this week.
    Verbalize the Negative: Saddam Hussein used the song referenced in clue 200 for one of his political campaigns.

  5. Proudly saying only got 200 points because I’m terrible with pop music, LOL! I can tell now I’m not going be very good at these quizzes, why did I join in?

  6. 300. I have never listened to an album by this artist.

    • Well played Bruce – they aren’t critically acclaimed, but I can’t help but enjoy her 80s albums!

  7. 500 my friend, 500.

  8. Back down at 200… I’m OK with that. No reason for me to know this stuff! Musicals? Jack Black? I’m out.

  9. 400 (thank you, incessant late-night TV reruns of ‘School of Rock’)!

  10. 300 today

  11. 500. The 200 point clue is brilliant!

  12. 100 points this week!!!!
    Gah!

  13. 100 for me too.

    • I know it’s not your genre of choice – I thought you might have got it at 200, as the clue was partly inspired by your OLP hashtag of why-ee-ii-ee-ii-ee!

  14. 300. I am actually embarrassed it took me three clues to get it.

    • Not to worry – the 300 score’s a classic glass half full/half empty scenario, I’d like to say it’s half full here!

  15. 200 points for me. I’m good with that. Almost like 500, really.

  16. 500! Cissy gave it away!

  17. 100 points for me.

  18. jprobichaud permalink

    I’m on a roll with these 400s. Chalk me up for another one.

    • If the 100 score is the report card equivalent of a ‘D’ and the 500 an ‘A+’ – you’re getting straight ‘A’s JP!

      • jprobichaud permalink

        Thanks. But I’d prefer straight A+s. Haha

      • The year is still young, you should have a nice report card to post on the fridge before too long! 😀

      • jprobichaud permalink

        Haha. Fingers crossed.

  19. 400 for me, 400 for Mika

  20. 400. Clue 200=The Best

  21. 100 for me, I’m very proud to say.

  22. 300 for the week
