Ready for Quiz #19?

Let’s Go! ♪

.

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!

    500! You might think I’m crazy… but I always loved their music videos.

    • I always appreciate when an artist puts effort into the videos – Peter Gabriel also comes to mind!

  3. 400, that first one was just too obscure for me.

  4. 400.

    PM5K cover one of their tunes mentioned there.

  5. 500 for me please. One of my absolute fave bands.

    • Well played, Mr. 1000/1537 – they’re a group I need to explore beyond the first album. I adore some of the groups they inspired so I imagine I’ll find plenty to like with them too!

      • They’re a class act, up to Heartbeat City at least – declining sharply thereafter in my humble opinion.

  6. I stalled twice. 300 points please.

  7. Zack permalink

    500.

  8. Stalled on the first question so just 400 for me this week.

  9. Just What I Needed is another 500 points!

  10. 500 for me!! It has been Touch And Go lately with my guesses but with this one I was able to Drive it home.

  11. 200 today.

  12. 500! It’s magic!

  13. Pop music maths equation on British panel show! Thought you might enjoy!

  14. 500! I wrote 968 words on them this morning.

  15. 500 for me and Mika.

  16. Harrison permalink

    400 please

    • Well done, Harrison! I made the spreadsheet yesterday afternoon, so the points will be added to next week’s

      • Harrison permalink

        No problems. There’s still 33 weeks
