Ready for Quiz #21?

Let’s do this!


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

That first side from their 2004 debut, one of the 21st Century’s finest thus far!

  1. 500. I like the cryptic clue

    • Well done Amrita!

      • Hi Geoff, have you been reviewing/listing albums lately? I don’t think I’ve read one in a while.

      • It’s been a while!
        Spring is my busiest season at school – I’m hoping some free time & reviews will materialize in the summer 😀

      • Wish you lots of energy for your work and lots of fun for your holidays!😁

  2. 400. I’ve warned you before about that hockey mullarkey.

  3. 400. Possibly more if the first clue had been in English. 😅

  4. 400… What Bruce said.

  5. 500 for me. I love that first album.

  6. 500 — all I needed was that word — one of the greatest albums of all time!

  7. 500 and thats no fussing around!

    500. That debut is still my favourite by them.

  9. 200 today. I don’t know the group but I know something about Dougie.

  10. 200 points as I am still recovering from soccer disaster. that is my excuse for everything right now and I am sticking with it.

  11. 400 points today

  12. 500! A band I used to dance to, which is rare!

    • You’re not alone – I like to start with a name that tune in classes. And one day, to introduce the topic of human resources, I played their tune ‘human’ -and a young man at the back of the class got up and started dancing. this group seems to have that power!

      • Human is a good song. Not my favourite album of theirs, but certainly not bad!

  13. Zack permalink


  14. 200. Not familiar…

  15. 200. Never really got into these guys.

  16. Man, 500. I see their albums at work all the time. Interesting that people are donating them for free and yet they’re on the 1001 list!

    • They may not be your cuppa (more than a slight Cure influence!) but even with that, for a $2 investment, the debut should still yield a good return!

  17. Easy 500 each for Mika and me.

  18. 500 of your finest points, please!

  19. 500 for me – I like this lot.
