Ready for Quiz #20?

It’s go time!

.

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!

Artist of the Week #20
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)

For:

500 points………………..Almost 2 decades prior to Whitney’s version, this American Artist wrote & recorded I Will Always Love You

.

.

.

.

400 points……………….,,Also about 2 decades before Donny Osmond was singing about his “Coat of Many Colors” (in the Taranna Production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), she had an unrelated 1971 album & opening track about a similarly colorful coat

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

200 points…………………She shares a first name with the sheep that was cloned in the 90s; though perhaps this country music superstar ought to look into her search engine optimization, as on the google search results list for her last name, she was second to a particle physics model of hadrons!

  1. 500. I like the original better, maybe because the cover was overplayed in my formative years.

  2. 500! The original (which I like far better too!) is featured in one of my favourite scenes in ‘Gilmore Girls’, so that is most helpful…

    • I find if a good song is used memorably in a movie/show, it becomes that much better – nice work!

  3. 500, a songwriter that is overlooked so often.

    • I certainly was unaware of her songwriting skills until a few years ago – I’m pleased you didn’t overlook her @ the 500 clue!

  4. 500. Very misunderestimated as Bush once said.

  5. 500. Doesn’t seem right, given my dislike of the genre, but there you go. Blame the book.

    • Those points are often that much sweeter – you expect to earn 500s in the preferred genres but when you can earn them in the not-so-favourite ones, bonus!

  6. Agh! 200! Very much not my kinda music though.

  7. 500! Such a great songwriter.

  8. Ha…ol Banger scores a 500! No working 9-5 today Geoff!

  9. 500 but only because I cannot stand that song haha. I mean, I get it, it’s a lovely sentiment. But no one needs to howl like that.

  10. Zack permalink

    500!

  11. Give me a 500 today.

  12. 500 for me!

  13. My sister recently talked about the song (in the first clue), and I mentioned the original. Quite the coincidence! 500 points

  14. jprobichaud permalink

    500! But yeah, I really had to think about it.

  15. 500! I have yet to watch the movies that feature that song.

  16. 500 each for Mika and I. Saw her in concert two years ago – still puts on a 3 hour show. Amazing.

    • Nice work James & Mika – and that’s fantastic to hear, I’d be interested in seeing that show!

  17. 200 for me.

  18. 500 for me, Geoff!!
