Ready for Quiz #46?

If you are confused, check with the sun!


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!

Verbalize the Positive

I adore their song, The Great Beyond, it would be in my all time Top 15 tunes!

From → Uncategorized

  1. 500. List needs Lifes Rich Pageant.

  2. 500 each for Mika and me. And I know all the words to that song much to the chagrin of people around me.

  3. 500 and I will not stand for less.

    • Your feet are going to be on the ground + you’ll have another 500 points while you’re there, Neil!

  4. Document this one as 500 please.

  5. 500. What Aphoristical said.

  6. 500! Love the band, but my Parks and Rec rewatch has immediately brought to mind Ben and Leslie’s “synchronised couples skate” to one of this band’s most famous songs… (And Tom tricking Ben into teaching him about basketball by telling him that the lead singer of this band was in his office!)

    • Adela, you have convinced me to rewatch Parks & Rec, so many great characters!
      And a fabulous score too!

      • Thank you! And I am pleased to be of assistance — there is never a bad time to rewatch Parks and Rec!

  7. A shiny, and indeed happy, 500 points.

    500 Peter Bucks for this Monster!

  9. Harrison permalink

    100 Please

  10. jprobichaud permalink

    500. Another of their albums hit 25 this year. Of course, I bought the requisite vinyl reissue.

  11. 500 on a lucky guess, going by the city!

  12. Zack permalink

    500. Love that movies!

  13. 200 for me.

  14. 400. I just rewatched Tommy Boy in the recent past too! Dang, it!

  15. 500 please.

  16. Yae! 500 points, please!

    I’ve been listening to them a fair bit recently.

    • I just read the Strange Currencies post this evening – well done on both the post & the score!
