Ready for Quiz #11?

Thank U for playing!

.

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. Burnt out on her in my teens but You Oughta Know is pretty good.

    • Excellent work – and the radio/video play was a bit overwhelming at the time for me too.
      Now I quite enjoy it though!

  2. 500 for this buck a roo and I’m up past midnight! You look like Elton Geoff playing those Keys with one hand in your pocket! Excellent stuff!

  3. 500 and well there ya go

  4. 400. I oughta have known at 500, but her nationality completely escaped me. Oh well, everything’s gonna be fine, fine, fine….

  5. 500. Loved her presence during the 90s. Very cool photo clues there! 🙂

  6. 500 for me! Jagged was one of my favourites.

    • And all those viewings paid off today, Mike!

      • I was just reading the wiki for You Can’t Do that On Television. They were talking about the character of Barth and his catchphrase, “Iiiiiiiiiiii heard that!” And that explains why, on one of my childhood cassette tapes, I can be heard going “Iiiiiii heard that!” I was obsessed I tells ya.

      • I can definitely still picture the slime!

      • Yep! The trademark slime. Legendary.
