Ready for Quiz #16?

My memory is _____!

.

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 always attempt valiantly / often struggle mightily with voice impressions.

So I’m quite pleased that my 2-year old can correctly identify my Daddy Pig / Mr. Bull / Mrs. Rabbit / Dr. Hamster impressions from Peppa Pig!

    100 please

  2. jprobichaud permalink

    500. That is all.

    • It would be a Long Distance Call for me to congratulate you over the phone – so in message form will have to suffice!

  3. 400 and should’ve known better.

  4. 200p. His unusual name is unforgettable once you first hear it

  5. Zack permalink

    300.

  6. 200. Also mentioned in Come Together by The Beatles if I’m not mistaken.

  7. 300 for me. Thank goodness for peppa!!

  8. BAM- 500 as it’s good to read all those past issues over the last 35 years of Rolling Stone Magazine. Funny I can retain that stuff but I can’t recall what I ate for lunch 2 days ago! lol

    • You’re retaining the important stuff, Deke – the good news is, I’d have a tough time working ‘what Deke ate for lunch the other day’ into one of these clues, so not to worry!

  9. No blues for me this week. 500 points.

    • They say you can’t lose what you ain’t never had – but you ain’t never going to lose these 500 points either, HMO!

  10. 500 but that was a lucky guess and nothing more.

    • Well guessed, Mike!

      • The only reason I didn’t guess Robert Johnson first was because I never heard of that album title before. So I defaulted my guess to the next biggest name I knew from the genre. Pure luck, dodged a bullet, whew!

  11. An easy 500 for me! One of my all-time favs.

  12. I’ll take a 500 today.

  13. 500 for Mika, 300 for me

  14. … woke up this morning… (dada dadada) … went to work… got back bout 9 in the eve… did the artist-quiz-of-the-week… scored me a fat 500… thanks to an album of the blues I have (yeah!)… an thanks to the bonus clue (yeah)… now I’m a man! (yeah)… ain’t no Peppa Pig child… Mommy Pig always said I’m gonna be the greatest man alive 🙂

  15. 400 here!

  16. 400 please, I guessed wrong.

    • Not to worry, Joe – if I remember correctly, you gave Hard Again a very favourable review, I’m looking forward to that album!
