Ready for Quiz #18?

Let’s go!

.

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

Although the Lord of the Rings trilogy was terrific on its own, choosing to wrap up the trilogy with this artist’s voice in the closing credits made it that much better!

    400.

    I’m loving these quizzes by the way, even though I’m not the highest scoring…

  2. 500. She’s older than I thought she’d be though.

  3. 500. I’m older than I thought I was.

  4. 500, sounds of my youth.

  5. 300 points. I didn’t know this artist was Scottish

  6. Who’s that beautiful blonde boy with the voice of an angel? It’s 300 points!
    Milo.

  7. had Sweet dreams of a cool 300 smack a roos Geoff

  8. 300 for me, she is a lost older than I thought. Really surprising.

    • I think some weeks the birthday clue helps narrow it down – I think this will be one of those weeks where it ends up being more confusing as I agree, I wouldn’t have guessed she was born in ’54!

      • This time it threw me. I was going through the list of Divas from the early 90’s and she came across my mind, but I was like, she ain’t that old.

  9. 500! ✌

  10. 400! I had no idea where she was from!

  11. 500. I didn’t know she was on the LOTR soundtrack! I vaguely remember Enya, and that’s all I remember of Enya🤔

    • I’m not sure if Enya will be a featured artist this year – but if so, that trivia tidbit might come in handy!

  12. Zack permalink

    300. I never knew she was Scottish.

  13. Another 200 for me.

  14. 500! A big favourite in our house when I was younger… quite the voice!

  15. 500 for Mika, 400 for me

  16. only 300 this week but i have missed yet another one! can i say i think would have done well with both Anthrax and Bon Jovi, too late! Here’s that FS post, if you wanna look/read too? https://a1000mistakes.wordpress.com/2016/10/20/classics-albums-in-the-wee-small-hours-by-frank-sinatra/

  17. 400. Sorry I’m late! Busy day yesterday!

  18. 500 for the second half of your clue, but I wouldn’t have guessed 1954, I’d have guessed later, like 1964. Bet she’d like that!
