Ready for Quiz #21?



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!

    200 Please

  2. 500. Was listening to it exactly a week ago, when I did last week’s quiz.

    500. But don’t ask me how I got it. Anyone’s guess, really.

    • I don’t think I’ve done Britney Spears yet – so “Oops…I did it again” may be worth remembering for a future clue!

    • I think you’re in good company this week, Amrita!

      • Only know a couple of tunes by today’s artist, and the Beatle cover, but I’m more ashamed I forgot Shrek!! I guess I need to watch all Mike Myers films to do this quiz 😁

      • Probably not a bad strategy!

  4. 300 because. well just because.

  5. Another 500 for me please!

  6. Had to take a couple of bites at this one. 200 points

  7. Only scraped 100 points. Cor(e) blimey that was a tricky one.

  8. Zack permalink

    500. Love this chick.

  9. I slipped a little this week. I guessed wrong and clue 3 told me so. 300 for me!!

  10. I’m tanking as quick as the Jays round these parts!
    200 and thank Gosh for that hint or it would have been Cellar time!

    • Love the comparison Deke – though I’d say 200 points is better than being on the wrong end of a 19-4 game!

      • Yeah yikes..
        I have Machado on my fantasy baseball team and he goes 1-5 and they score 19 runs haha

  11. 200 for me today.

  12. Twas a quiz that tested folk to the core.
    300 pips for me please.

  13. 200… Oh dear…

  14. Tidal was the second CD I ever bought. 500!
