Ready for Quiz #26?

Sounds good!


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. I kind of hate their radio hits, but suspect I might like their mid-1970s albums.

  2. Harrison permalink


  3. 500 points please!

  4. 200. Relieved I’m not the only one with the embarrassing score!

    • Not to worry Amrita, you’re in good company!

      • You must be aware of the Thom Yorke film on Netflix called Anima. If not, thought it might interest you!

      • I was not aware of the film – and yes, that would be very interesting in my books, thanks Amrita!

        And speaking of movies, I’m quite pleased Keanu Reeves has been called “the internet’s boyfriend” among other complimentary nicknames this year!

      • He’s everywhere these days! Nice to know it’s for all good reasons. They’re making a new Bill and Ted as well!

  5. 300 points please. Not a band I know anything about at all.

  6. 500 and embarrassed to admit it!

  7. 500 easy ones, and only a tiny bit embarrassed to admit it!

  8. Zack permalink


  9. 300 for me. Better than last week.

  10. jprobichaud permalink

    500. But I second guessed myself multiple times before deciding for sure who it was.

  11. A bewildering 500 points… cause I know very little about this band!

  12. 500 Points! That clue at the bottom was awesome Geoff! Brilliant work! These guys were huge and are still played all the time on rock radio as you know!
    Back in the game this week!

  13. I’ll take another 200.

  14. Oof 200 this week!

  15. 500 Please, but it was a guess.

  16. 500 each for me and Mika.

  17. Cheers Stephen, 300 points please. I had no idea they were English, always thought they were American.

    • I had originally thought that too – it was likely their Breakfast title that made me think that!

  18. 400, please!

  19. 500! (My mum was a teen in the ’70s so I grew up with this band!)

  20. 500. I see that album at work ALL THE TIME.

    • Interesting it shows up that often – I could do without the singles, but it’s worth keeping for the album tracks!

      • Love when the album tracks are better… or are the singles just overplayed?

      • Perhaps – but in this case I think I would have changed the channel when the singles came on, not sure if I’d ever made it through ‘dreamer’ before listening to it as part of the album!

  21. Oooo…. an easy 500 for me! I’m not much of a fan but they’re played enough on the radio. Again not necessary to add the points since I’m super late.
