Ready for Quiz #13?

Why wait!

.

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 each for me and Mika.

  2. 500. I’ve never seen Deadpool, and now I may have a reason NOT to see it.

    • Nice work Amrita – it’s vulgar at times, but quite funny during others!

      • I know. I really want to see it. However, there are very few things in life I hate, and that song is one of them. I don’t mind the artist otherwise.

  3. There was no avoiding that film clip, was there? 500

  4. 400. I was wary of you April fooling us today 🙂

  5. 400 this week, amazing!

  6. Zack permalink

    300. Not bad.

  7. 100 today.

    400. Excepting of course Bono’s famous line, I’ve never been good at picking out all the singers in Band Aid.

    • And admittedly, I find this singer and the ones before & after him in the song don’t sound all that dissimilar.
      400’s a fine score considering!

  9. 400 out of control Careless Whispers for this guy!

    • Haha, I love how your currency changes each week Deke (hi-fives/careless whispers/big ones…), it’ll be tough to convert them all to one point system at the end of the year!

  10. 500, my teen soundtrack

  11. 500 because my sister was (and still is) a huge fan since the early days, so I heard it a lot.

  12. 500! Booyah! 👊
    (And where was Aaron last week? I dethroned him?!!

  13. 400. This game is rigged bigly for Sarca Sim.

    • If Crowded House/Everything But The Girl/Jann Arden ends up being the artist of the week next week, I launch an bigly-rigging investigation!

  14. 500! Countless Christmases spent being forcefed that song had paid off!
    Milo.

  15. 400… tried to play back Band Aid in my mind but, in my head, it was a David Essex/Bono duet.

  16. 500. After he died I realized I liked a lot more of his music than I thought I did.

  17. 500! Yas!

  18. 200 for this week
