Ready for Quiz #41?



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!


Artist of the Week #41
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)


500 points………………..On this author’s life to-do list: learn the piano intro to this American artist’s 2003 song, Roses (and determine just out how a “golden calculator” might help with division problems)






400 points………………..In the early 2000s, the instant camera maker, Polaroid, warned consumers that if you did indeed shake your photograph (as this Artist suggested), you could actually damage your picture






300 points……………….Atlanta hip hop duo (André 3000 & Big Boi), they have a pair of albums on the 1001 list, Stankonia & Speakerboxxx/The Love Below






200 points………………The one-word band name is what you would call someone that has been banished from a community (or as a ___ + ____ = ______ clue, the opposite of ‘safe’ in baseball + the list of actors in a film)






100 points………………..The artist is:   O_________






Answer: أوتكاست

  1. 500. Guessing from Rivendell this week.

    • I imagine that would be a very soothing environment for writing quizzes – it worked out well today!

  2. 500. The smell of the first clue gave it away

  3. 500. Again!

  4. I know the guy’s face and Hey Ya! from the radio but couldn’t name any albums. 200 points.

    • I know that feeling of being able to visualize but not name an artist – glad you put it together at 200!

  5. 500 this week – cAAroLIIIIIIIIIINEEEEeeeee!

  6. 400, was talking about this at a party the other day when someone shook a Polaroid print!

  7. 200 points! Need to brush up on the HIP HOP!

  8. 400 for me. My kids used to go around singing that part about the polaroid picture.

    • I found it quite amusing that Polaroid issued a press release advising against shaking!

      • That is funny, but I remember shaking those pictures back in the day to get them to develop faster…or at least we thought it would.

      • It feels like it would accelerate the process!

  9. 300. The first two clues were right over my head.

    • 300’s a competitive score this week Mike, one of the higher ones from the blogging community!

  10. Zack permalink

    300. I remember hearing about the Polaroid thing, but couldn’t place it.

  11. 0 today. I figured out the word clue and got an Irish Punk band of the 80’s.

    • It seems to be in many cases, the better the score on the Buddy Holly week, the more difficult this week!

  12. Zero 🤷‍♀️

  13. 200. I knew I was in trouble when I saw 2003.

  14. jprobichaud permalink

    A measly 200. Not my genre at all.

  15. A massively impressive big fat 0…

  16. 500 for Mika, 400 for me

  17. Needed a trio of clues for this duo, Geoff. 300 today thanks to the album titles.

  18. 300 for me too.

  19. 500 but only thanks to my lovely wife (she’s a fan).
