Ready for Quiz #28?

Splendid!

.

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!

400 points………………..Though their massive 1983 hit sounds like a beautiful love song, upon closer inspection of the constant/obsessive surveillance lyrics? Somewhat less beautiful

.

.

.

.

,

300 points…………………They have a pair of albums on the 1001 list, Regatta de Blanc & Synchronicity (though arguments could be made that every little thing they did/recorded during their career was magic)

  1. 500. I did not know the clue for 200 points! I always assumed the reason would be cooler, but this one is kind of adorable.

  2. 500 my teen years soundtrack for awhile.

  3. This ones a 500. They were all over the radio when I was growing up and one of my Brothers favourite bands

  4. 500 each for me and Mika.

    • And Mika had 500 last week – I left the comment on last week’s quiz a day or two ago after she got back into town.

      • Yes – I’ve started putting a disclaimer saying scores received after ____ will be added next week (as I’ll do the spreadsheet usually before the weekend). So not to worry, her 500 from last week will be added, as will the pair of 500s this week, nice work!

  5. 500 for me too.

  6. Oooft. It’s 300 this week… I still have a bit to explore when it comes to this lot.

  7. 500 for me. I didn’t know about the 200 point fact either!

  8. 400 this time!

    400. Never knew the lead singer’s real name. Hint number two was a gimme though.

  10. 500 for me! Love this band!!

  11. Sending out 500 S.O.S’s!!!
    Great band! The last album they did is easily in my all time Top 20!

  12. Having always sat up straight and paid attention in Mr Sumner’s classes, I subsequently followed his non-teaching career with interest. About 500% interest.

    • I had either forgotten or hadn’t known he was a teacher – I now appreciate him even more, and the fine score too!

  13. Zack permalink

    500! I knew knowing that name would come in handy someday.

  14. 500 for Summer.

  15. 400. I recognized Gordon’s name but couldn’t place it at first.

  16. 400 points. Didn’t know the artist’s real name (I do now!)

  17. Send out a S.O.S. because that is 500 two weeks in a row!

  18. Too easy 500. Just tried reading an autobiography of him (still haven’t finished it)…
