Ready for Quiz #39?



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………………..and while most bands don’t tend to write about Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, most bands also do not have a guitarist (Brian May) with a PhD in Astrophysics!

A reliable radio station quality test: If the station waits for the gong hit after “any way the wind blows,” that’s a station worth listening to – and Kingston’s rock station passed!

  1. 500, since I blogged on that song recently.

  2. Another 500, please! Hurrah!!

  3. 400. One of the rare celebrities who earned their Ph.D!

    • Well done Amrita – they say rock music isn’t rocket science, but with this artist it was pretty close!

  4. Don’t stop me now, I got 500!

  5. 400 points today. Going to go listen to the time dilation song…

    • I can’t think of too many other time dilation tunes – I imagine it’s the best of its genre!

  6. 500. Love that song 🙂

  7. 500 for me. 39 was the charm

  8. 500 for me Fella…that movie looks promising by the clips I have seen

    • Excellent work Deke – it looks like the actor playing the singer did his homework!

      • Yes for sure Geoff. Not a easy thing to do with a rock n roll movie

  9. 500 for me. 2 weeks in a row!

  10. jprobichaud permalink

    500. Surprisingly.

  11. The only album of theirs in the VC holding. Bit o’ luck, that. Funf Hundert, Bitte!

  12. 400. With all that education you’d think he would have realised he needed a haircut.

    • Perhaps he learned there’s something aerodynamic about the style that enhances his guitar work?!

  13. 500 – I used to make a Top10 chart of this band’s favourite tracks every Sunday night in my diary.

    • What a terrific Sunday night tradition – their ‘Killer’ song would be a mainstay in my top 10 chart!

      • I used to do two charts, one for this band and one for everyone else. They were that important to me.

  14. Zack permalink

    500. Too easy.

  15. 400 each for me and Mika.

  16. 400. Nice to know he’s not just a clever guitarist.

  17. 400, I’ve always thought that was cool!

  18. 500 and thank you

  19. Did I already say 500

  20. 500! (Makes up for missing last week.)

  21. 500, but only because I only recently snagged a copy of ANATO on CD and I was reminded of that track… Seriously, if this isn’t meant-to-be timing, I dunno what is!

  22. 500. Oh man. By sheer coincidence…I was working Sunday…and I played ’39 about four times. Studio and live.

    • Excellent timing Mike!
      I’ve already done the spreadsheet for next week but I solemnly swear the 500 will be added and displayed on quiz #41!

  23. Harrison permalink

    New to the quiz series, so don’t bother adding me to the leaderboard this year, but I was pleased to be able to get 500 on this one.
