Ready for Quiz #10?



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!

    100 please, my good sir.

  2. I say 500 little prayers.

  3. 500 this week!

  4. Written on both those albums. Add me to the 500 point chain of fools.

  5. R.E.S.P.E.C.T and 400 points to me! R.E.S.P.E.C.T take care TCB!

  6. David Lee Roth is a huge fan of this lady….Roth drove across the U.S back i 1984 listening nothing but this stuff in a convertible no less. Than again Dave could be shitting us with that but it does make a good story!
    So thanks to Diamond Dave we are looking at 400 this week Sir!

  8. A very lucky guess bags me another 500!

  9. 500, please!

  10. jprobichaud permalink

    I can actually say 500 so you gotta give some respect.

  11. The streak is broken.


    I failed,

  12. What you want, baby I got it — 500!

  13. 500 please…

  14. Ladies and gentlemen, kindly give it up for WDEOD and his dancing 500 points. Chris

  15. 500 each for me and Mika.

    • Well done James & Mika!

      • It was unfair. She knew the answer and I made a wild-ass guess, but 500 is 500 either way and it was unfair in my favour so I’ll take it

      • It’s like in hockey, the team that is on the receiving end of a power play rarely seems to complain to the ref!

  16. I’ll take a 400 today.

  17. 300 for me please. Supposedly not a very nice person at all.

  18. Man if it came down to me not getting 500 on that one I’d probably have to turn in my license to listen to music! Haha fish in a barrel, brother! 😉
