Ready for Quiz #10?

A rhetorical question!

.

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. 500 for Mika, 400 for me

  2. The linguistic clue was the clincher. Sadly, at only 300.

    • Nice work Bruce – I anticipate a 500 from you next week, even without the help of any accent aigus!

  3. 400… which was a relief cause the first clue had me totally stumped.

  4. 500 for me and being a CPA, I really like the first clue.

  5. 100 this week=GAH!

    • I was worried this would be a tough week for my rock friends Deke, I’m pleased you were able to avoid the goose egg though!

      • Yeah i’m kinda wondering if some of these other Rock Guys are telling the truth with the score’s!
        PISS TEST EM ALL!
        hahaha

  6. 500! 500!

  7. 500 for me but only because Stuff And That had a song from this artist featured recently.

  8. I’ll take 300 today.

  9. Sadly I know the song, so…500.

    There used to be a sign in our work kitchen — “Garbage is on the left” so somebody added a second “on the left” to the sign!

    • Nothing sad about 500 points – and I like that clever addition!

      • I confess I vandalized a sign recently. The sign was the regarding the coffee creamers: “Please use pods in the drawer first.” I added the word “Tide” somewhere in that sentence.

  10. “Born in 1981.”

    It was then I knew this would be a low scoring week for me. I managed to scrape together 200 points with the fragments of knowledge I had, but it did not feel good about it.

    • I thought it might be a tough week for my rock friends – the knowledge fragments at least came up with a couple hundred!

  11. 500! Yes gawd queen *tongue pop*
    Milo.

    • Excellent work Milo – and Aaron (keepsmealive) said one of your recent posts helped him to his 500 this week too!

      • Haha my boy! That’ll be my بيونسيه post from a few weeks ago — glad I could help!

    200. Don’t think I’ve ever listened to a note of her music.

  13. Zack permalink

    500

  14. 300 only.

  15. 500. I have no idea how I know that lyric. But, I swear I do.

    • You never know when such random knowledge will pay off – but I’m glad it did today Amrita!

      • Especially when you didn’t know you had it in the first place! Who knows, I might even get a question on Justin Bieber right someday, though I don’t know if I’ll be proud of myself!

      • I’m with you there – I remember at a school trivia teachers vs. students challenge, I knew an answer of Tom Cruise marrying Katie Holmes. And I was torn – I got our team the points, but there wasn’t a great deal of pride in doing so!

      • Did you know each of Tom Cruise’s wives progressively have an 11 year age-gap between them? For your next quiz, in case you’re asked about Tom Cruise again!

      • Trivia info filed away for future use!

  16. The alter ego was the clue I needed. 400 points

  17. 500 this week! Yas!

  18. i got 400 points this week amazingly!

  19. 500…despite the fact I’ve never voluntarily listened to anything she’s put out, I suppose my Gen Z credentials come in handy this week!

    • There’s certain artists we’ll end up knowing a lot about (however involuntarily) through osmosis – I’m glad the credentials paid off this week!

  20. 400 but don’t know how I new this

  21. 400 for me – I like her stuff.
