Ready for Quiz #24?

Let’s do it!

.

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. 500. Luckily my wife is into swing music.

  2. 500 for me via lucky wild-ass guess.

    400 for Mika, who guessed عطلة بيلي at the 500-point clue, then at the 400-point clue said, “I don’t know, I guessed إيلا فيتزجيرالد and you said it was wrong” and I told her she actually hadn’t. So then she guessed إيلا فيتزجيرالد.

  3. 400 for me please…and the livin’ is easy.

  4. 500 for me again please, Geoff.

  5. There is a certain sigh of relief when reading the first clue and knowing one is on point.
    500 please Mr 1001.

    Nothing, if you will be so kind

  9. jprobichaud permalink

    400 for me this fine Sunday morning.

  10. 200 and that’s no jazz!

  11. I’ll take a 500 for this one.

  12. I’ll take the 400 to go, please.

  13. 500! A lucky guess!

  14. If I didn’t get 500 on this one, I’d have to turn in my jazz card.
