Ready for Quiz #44?

It’s time!

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. 400. Never heard of that first album!

  2. 400, I think I saw her live, I am however not sure.

  3. Struggled to score points this week but I’m happy I made a new discovery thanks to your quiz 🙂

  4. 400 for me. I’d never guess this artist was on the 1001 list.

  5. Totally clueless here but luckily recognized the title of the second album so 400.

  6. Saw her live in Melbourne. What a voice. Interesting audience too. A great night.
    500 please Mr Music.

  7. 500 points asI still remember the artist playing the Junos that year and of course this artist has a co write on the Stones track ‘Anybody Seen My Baby’ as the Stones tune sounded similar to Constant Craving so Mick and Keef to avoid a lawsuit credited this artist with a co write…
    Pretty Cool

    • I hadn’t picked up on the similarities at the time – but when I heard about the co-write credit, probably a wise move.
      And speaking of wisdom, nice work this week Deke!

  8. 400. She is fantastic! Mad I didn’t get it at 500, but completely spaced on that album.

  9. Zack permalink

    300. I’ve never been a fan.

  10. 100! Oof, not a great week for me!

  11. 500 each for me and Mika

  12. I’ll take 300 this time.

  13. 400. I’ll never catch up to Sarca at this rate!

  14. jprobichaud permalink

    400. I haven’t had Mac and cheese in years

  15. 100 for me. Meh.

  16. 400 for me!

  17. 500 easy peasy

  18. I see CDs by this artist at work ALL THE TIME. 500 just from sheer repetition!
