Ready for Quiz #37?

Superb!

.

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!

    300. Never been a fan.

  2. Zack permalink

    400. I could hear the Bond song in my head, but couldn’t remember who sang it.

  3. 300 and depressed now

  4. 500. I’m particularly fond of the first couple of albums.

  5. 500. A high point in a week of deeply alarming swedish neo-fascism.

  6. Just 300 for me. No interest in her or Bond!

  7. Now let me see… Shirley Bassey? Sheena Easton? … got it! Thanks 007.
    500

  8. 200… Not so successful this week!

  9. Another 200.

  10. I know my Bond themes. 500 points

  11. I always like those Bond movies Geoff!
    Shaken and Stirred 500 times please!

  12. Another 300 for me. Pah!

  13. 500 each for me and Mika. Between James Bond songs and Meat Loaf trivia, you’re really playing into my strengths these days.

    I went to Another Roadside Attraction in Saskatoon in 1996 and saw some lady walking through the crowd with a dog and I was like “hey, how’d she get a dog in here” but it was [quiz answer lady] and the rules are different for you when you’re one of the big draws at the festival. She (and the dog) went into a fenced-off area to watch some of the earlier bands but she’d sign programs that security handed her and that’s how I got her autograph.

    • I would have loved to have seen one of those Roadside Attraction tours – I’ll see if I can keep in your trivia comfort zone as the weeks go on James!

  14. 400 here! Not the biggest fan…

  15. Bond trivia = 500! Something to crow about, eh?

  16. 500 here, and while I haven’t cared about much since the first record, and it’s either her or her guitarist I’ve caught ripping off Keef too often, that first record is a nostalgic gem from university days.
