Ready for Quiz #17?

To quote David Puddy (wearing an 8-Ball jacket), all signs point to yes!

.

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

I love that the ‘David Puddy’ actor (Patrick Warburton) dressed up in his New Jersey Devils gear for one of their playoff games this year – you gotta support the team!

  1. 500. Not really a fan, but my friend had all of their albums.

  2. 500. My wife insists on having their aquatic classic mounted on our living room wall. I’m looking at it right now – that’s hygge for you.

    • A fantastic score – and a fantastic new-to-me term, hygge!

      • I thought it had become universal. The brits and scandies are obsessed with it. Only a matter of time before it finds its way over the Atlantic.

  3. 500!! Yae!! And I wouldn’t have known that if it wasn’t for some mutual friends!

  4. 300. Slip sliding away.

    • If I’d earned one more point on your album cover quiz Bruce, at 300/500 and 9/15, we would have been equally successful this week!

  5. 500, although I was surprised they were not earlier in the 80’s, but after all, it’s all the same only the names will change, or not.
    It’s surprising how competitive this least competitive of quizzes makes me.

    • Well said about the names – and well done with the non-competitive yet competitive high score!

  6. 500. Finally. It had been awhile since I hit the top score.

  7. Managed to lay my hands on another 500.

  8. 300, not my favourite band but points is points 😀
    Milo.

  9. when the Doc writes my prescription for Bad Medicine I want 500 of something!

  10. Bam! 500!

  11. I’ll take 200 today.

  12. Zack permalink

    500

  13. Stole another 500! At this rate I’ll be Wanted Dead or Alive soon.

    • Well you’ll have 500 points at least to keep you company as you ride off on your steel horse!

  14. An easy 500! Woot!

  15. 200 points

  16. jprobichaud permalink

    500. Don’t ask me how I knew the answer to clue number one. Okay… I’ll tell you. Growing up in small town Southern Ontario, these guys were impossible to avoid in the late 80s.

  17. 500 for me.

  18. 500 for me, 300 for Mika along with a lot of whining about how Bruce Springsteen is the only musician to ever come from New Jersey

  19. 0!

    Ah, you know I’m kidding. 500.
