Ready for Quiz #14?

To quote André 3000, alright alright alright alright alright alright alright alright!

.

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!

      Who’s winning?

      • Nil all at full time. Bit of a success for Canada really as NZ are higher ranked and had a lot of shots. Women’s hockey.

      • jprobichaud permalink

        Haven’t really been following the games at all to this point but I do usually love watching intl competition.

    • Well played – and I hope it was a good game!

  3. jprobichaud permalink

    I feel like 400 is my lot in life.

  4. Mighty pleased to report that I scored 500 big ones here. Yas!

  5. Zack permalink

    500!

  6. Guessed correctly at 500; confirmed at 400!

  7. 500 daddyo! My old fart credentials are intact.

  8. Yeesh! A measly 100 this time, really shoulda got it at 300 though. I think my age definitely showed with this one!

  9. Cluckin’ bell, a very lucky guess lands me 500!

  10. Only have a few of his albums, but fortunately the one referenced in the first clue is one (and a fine one too!) 500 please.

    • Well played Bruce – I thought this might be a week where those who have read/own the 1001 book might unintentionally be rewarded too. They say people remember the beginning/end of a book or essay, perhaps the same holds true for 1001 lists!

  11. 400 for this Chairman of the Bored!

  12. 500 big ones today.

  13. Well 500 even though I own nothing by him. I do however enjoy many of his songs.

  14. Thought I had it at 500 but a 400 will have to do.

  15. 400 for me this week…

  16. 400, 400, start spreading the news.

  17. 500 points! because it’s a fave album from 50’s and I did even wrote a post about it a couple of years ago, let me known Stephen or anyone else and I’ll dig it up and find if you wanna look?

  18. 500, but I was thinking I was headed for 400 until I got to the end of the 500 clue and then I knew!

  19. 300, almost 400

  20. 400 for me, 400 for Mika. As is becoming the norm.

  21. 500!
    Not enough to redeem my score.

  22. 400 for the week
