Ready for Quiz #22?



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!

Are You Gonna Go My Way, what a riff!

  1. Another 500 for me!! Woop!!

  2. A straight 500 for me too.

  3. 500, showing my age…

  4. 400 for me. Any question involving modern film or TV is likely to lose me.

  5. 500. He was good in the film, I thought.

  6. 500 for me. He was the only thing I liked in that movie.

  7. 400 as that first question in regards to films confused me?! ha…
    Speaking of which need to ask Mr Cab Driver next time if he’s Gonna Go My Way?
    Why? I have no idea…just pondering life!

    • Well Deke, My mama said congrats on the 400!

      • Changing gears have u heard Weezer’s spin on Toto’s Rosanna?

      • Just listening to it now – I’d heard they’d done an Africa version (have since heard that too, catchy!), they’re definitely keeping fans guessing these days!

      • One way of keeping things fresh thats for sure!

  8. 200. I liked Duddy.

  9. Zack permalink

    300. I’m glad I didn’t get the Hunger Games clue. Whew.

  10. 400…never watched or read the Hunger Games.

  11. 500 for me, easy to nail that lip-syncing s.o.b.! Hahaha I’ll never forget that, what a disappointment.

  12. Well I guessed at 500 but was never sure even at the end, not sure what to claim as points.

  13. 400. I need to stop this tying Sarca business!

  14. 500 for Mika, 400 for me

  15. 500. Ahh Cinna, not a nice fate.

  16. When you said actor/musician I couldn’t get Meat Loaf out of my head! Tough one this week. Will settle for 100 points.

    • Not to worry, Meat Loaf may be an artist before the year is through, he’s got one on the 1001!

    500. Sorry. A little late this week. I was Festival-ing in T-dot.

    • THat’s as valid a reason as I’ve heard – if a student ever said that was the reason for incomplete homework, how could I object!

      • jprobichaud permalink

        I would be with you on that one. Festivals enrich the spirit. Live music is good for the soul.

  18. I was on holiday. Am I too late to say 400?
