Ready for Quiz #43?



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!

Verbalize the Positive

Faces have been a really nice new-to-me discovery from the 1001 list!

  1. 500. I’m glad I didn’t have to resort to the 300 clue, as I strongly dislike that song.

    • Ha! I’d never even heard of it! (Luckily, clue #1 was sufficient).

    • Haha, I’m completely unreasonable about the tune as I loved it as an 11-year old!

      • I just listened to it again for this first time for ages. There are parts of it I like – that “all for love” hook is pretty. Rod Stewart and Bryan Adams is kind of a weird pairing – both have super gravelly voices.

        I was wondering if you were contractually obliged to enjoy it as a Canadian, but I guess Rod was an honorary New Zealander at that point.

      • There was a scene in South Park where they suggested the Canadian Government had apologized for Bryan Adams:

        Though I’m unapologetic-ally a lifelong fan!

  2. 500 for the mod…

  4. 500 points. I hang my head in shame as I’ve never listened to any of his albums

  5. Maggie: May I give you some points?
    Me: 500 please!

  6. 500. Is he a Sir now? Could you do a supergroup of rock’n’roll knights? Half a dozen superegos fighting over the vocal mic and Ringo with no competition on the drum stool. Why aren’t more drummers knighted? Sir Charles Watts? Lord Headon of the Westway?

  7. 500 I do have all the luck

  8. The roll continues- 500!!

  9. Another 500 for this guy!!

  10. 500. Reviewed a few days ago!

  11. I’m in at 200.

  12. jprobichaud permalink


  13. 500 for this fella who is Forever Young! hahahaha

  14. 500! BOOM! 💥

  15. Just dropped off some old motown records and scored me a 500!

  16. Five hundreeeeeeeeeeed!

  17. 500 for Mika, 400 for me
