Ready for Quiz #30?

Neat-o!

.

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!

  1. There goes fifty tenners for me please.

  2. great clues G. amazing artist. 500 pls.

  3. 400 this week — haven’t heard much outside of Hounds!

  4. 400 for me. If I only could make a deal with God, I’d have got full marks I’m sure!

  5. 400 — I need to get into her work more!

  6. 300 for me as I do know that song with her.

  7. Yikes!! I got lost in the Forest in which I took 100 steps and ended up in the Bush!

  8. jprobichaud permalink

    400 for me. I only know a bit of this one but I do like what I know.

  9. Zack permalink

    200. I’ve never heard of this artist.

  10. Hmm, I wonder who this could possibly be. Probably, someone from a very different universe, because this one is just not good enough. That she, I mean they, could possibly exist, in this very planet, made up from similar atoms and molecules as the species I’m part of…
    Can I have those 500 points please, Geoff?
    Delightful comments section today. Always happy to read from others who love her.

    • Haha, I was planning on just putting the 500 beside your name on the spreadsheet Amrita without even looking at the comments – if you somehow got any less, something was wrong with the clues!

  11. Did you really find her through the 1001? To me, that’s the best part about your doing the project!

    • I think I knew of her before – but it was thanks to the 1001 that I actually listened & invested in her music.
      And speaking of which, the latest record in my collection is an EP of running up that hill, at $5 it was an easy decision!

      • Wow ooh wow ooh wow ooh wow ooh wow ooh unbelievable!
        If you can find it, look for the EP with the alternative version of “Hounds of LOVE”. That’s my favourite track (if I had to pick a favourite at gun point or something) and I like the alternative version even more.
        Have you listened to the Never For Ever album? Interesting second track on that one too.

      • I’m not always keen on remixes/alternate versions, but I’m keen on this one!

      • I tried sharing its YouTube link with you in the comments, but apparently it did not work. Anyway, I don’t think you’ll regret it, if you do seek it out. She released an entire album of “redone” versions, and some of them (like “This Woman’s Work”) are not as good as the originals, but can happily and competently co-exist!
        Btw, it’s her 60th birthday today. I don’t know if you had that in mind as you wrote this post.

      • It was unintentional – but I’m glad it ended up being a timely celebration of her work!

  12. I really had to stop and think about this one for a minute, as it’s been ages since I heard her, but yup it’s a 500 for me once I got all the dust off my memory!

  13. 500 and she is a unique and different talent.

  14. Nil today. No memory of her.

  15. 400 for me. 500 for Mika

  16. Only 400. But I knew it! First heard her music in highschool, when somebody did Wuthering Heights for a school project. Impressive stuff.

    I know I missed a bunch of these, too.

    • I love when students bring music into their projects – I think I would have enjoyed that presentation!

  17. Hope I’m not too late to get a entry in. Busy weekend!
    Only 200. I know the name but not much else.

  18. I’m a fan. 500 points
