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. True story. I used to have the album in clue number one on cassette tape.

    • Nice one, JP – not meaning to brag (well, maybe a little!), I’m the proud owner of that album’s title track on cassingle!

  2. 500. I got really into Jam and Lewis a couple of years ago and tried to track down their big 1980s records.

  3. 500 and I have never owned an album by any of the family. I am somewhat proud of this.

  4. Harrison permalink

    100 please

  5. 100 for me. And a crisp high five for me being totally clueless!

    • Not to worry, HMO – I don’t recall seeing too many of this artist’s albums in your facebook influential series!

  6. 500 for me. And I love the Good Place reference, just finished binging that show a few weeks back.

    • Cheers, John – what a show, so many great characters. Terrific role for Ted Danson.
      With a score like 500, Ya definitely not Basic!

  7. To quote my Sith Darth Vader, “All too easy”. 500! You gotta wake up earlier to fool me 🙂

  8. Clicked at 200… I love Janet’s character in the show!

  9. How the F**K did Ladano get into first?? lol
    Bought this on CD for my sister that year for Christmas on cassette back in good old 89!
    500 smackers Sir!

  10. I wish my Arabic reading skills were good enough to cheat here!

    500 for me though, although I wouldn’t have got the next 2 clues.

  11. 500 today thanks to Gary Indiana.

  12. Zack permalink

    500. Mostly a good guess because how many other famous musicians have come from Gary, IN?

  13. 300 points please. Phew, the famiiy connection clue did it 🙂

  14. Easy 500 for Mika and me. More Good Place themed clues please. Are there any Anagonyes on the 1001 list?

  15. 500. My sister played her albums endlessly back in the day.

  16. First time playing along but 500 on this one! Great album choice too!

  17. 500. No internet for four days due to natural disasters, so sorry I’m late!

    • Oh dear, I hope all is well, Amrita – and as far as reasons for answer delays go, that’s as legitimate a reason as I’ve heard!
      I’ll add these to next week’s spreadsheet, nice work this week & last week!

      • Apparently, it was the fastest/heaviest cyclone ever. Windows breaking, cars colliding…. It feels like we’re living in an apocalyptic novel in 2020!
