Ready for Quiz #14?

¡Que Vida!

.

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!

400 points……………….and their other 1001-listed album, Forever Changes, was deemed significant enough to be included in the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry.

Of somewhat less cultural significance, in the NES tennis game below, the band shares a name with “You”s current score.*

    300 please.

  2. 500. The snot has caked against my pants!

  3. jprobichaud permalink

    400 for me. I missed the first clue but thankfully for my friend Andrew, managed the second. This is another of his favourites.

    • He’s been a good friend to have on these quizzes!
      I can only assume you approve of the Frank Turner tennis tune of the same score?

  4. 500 and all I can wish is for more again.

  5. 500 please. I have two of their albums but can never really get beyond Like with either of them

  6. 500 points. Same as what Steveforthedeaf said except I’ve only got one album.

  7. 400 for me. The Tennis score was the giveaway for me.

    • Sometimes tennis knowledge pays off around here, John – perhaps a ‘deuces are wild’ clue at some point!

  8. 500 virtual High 5’s Mr Stephen. The name drop in the first clue helped big time for me this week.

    • Excellent work, Deke – rather than having a clear first name / last name, I like how Arthur Lee & I both seemingly have 2 first names!

      • Great call Stephen Geoff! lol

      • When I was just commenting as ‘stephen1001’ on posts – I think most people assumed that was the name!
        Have you had a chance to see season 3 of the Ozark yet? We’ve got 1 episode to go, it’s as intense as ever!

      • We watched all 10 episodes last weekend. 3 on Friday night. 4 on Saturday and finished up with the last 3 last Sunday.
        What an ending man…just u wait!

        When I first came across your blog In the comments I called you Stephen and than I read a few other comments and someone said Geoff!
        Geoff it is!

      • It won’t be easy to wait but we’ll have to wait until the kids go to sleep tonight – impressively, 2 outta 3 are still snoozing this morning, that ain’t bad!

      • No kidding that 730 pm tribute to Healthcare workers and the fresh air has pooped em out.

  9. 500! I’ve been listening to them a lot at the minute (and I love a good music theory-based clue, considering that is what I major in at university)!

  10. 500. One of Alice Cooper’s favourite bands which is where I first became aware.

    • To quote Wayne when he met Alice, I was not aware of that!
      Alice really is a fascinating dude – he was pals with Groucho Marx, he’s a heck of a golfer, he preserves the Hollywood sign…!

      • I probably don’t own it anymore but I’ve read his golf book. It’s great! I don’t golf, never have, don’t care. Loved his book. Read it in like two days.

    300. The name Arthur Lee sounds sorta familiar, but the tennis reference went right over my head.

  12. Another 500 this week. I remember the album cover but not much of the music.

  13. 400. Heard of Arthur Lee but couldn’t place the band. The NES tennis game clue was brilliant, and just the ace I needed! 🙂

  14. 400 each for me and Mika. Not sure I’ve ever heard of them but got it off the tennis clue. Mika says that I’ll know some of their songs. We shall see.

  15. 300. Prem (how the Hindi translation will be pronounced) is all you need!

    • Well played, Amrita – and thank you for the pronunciation, all you need is Prem indeed!

      • I feel I should also be a good Bengali and add “Bhalobasha” to the list!

      • I’d just like to add, Prem also works for Bengali as well. It does take some thinking to distinguish between the two! Pyaar would be another word in Hindi. Sorry, all this must get confusing!

      • In the case of learning words in new languages, Amrita – more is more! So thank you,
        धन्यवाद!

      • Dhanyavad (works for both Hindi and Bengali) for the weekly quizzes, Geoff!

  16. 500 please, again. Or.

  17. 400. Never heard of them and the sight of sheet music makes me nervous. But I have watched a tennis match or two!

  18. 400 please!
