Ready for Quiz #25?

Victory shall be yours!


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

So far, I only know her 3 albums that made the 1001 list & she definitely went 3 for 3 on those, all keepers!

From → Uncategorized

  1. 500 please although I particularly like the 200 point clues.

  2. jprobichaud permalink

    500. That’s all I’ve got right now

  3. 500. You can’t get rid of me off the scoreboard that easily.

  4. 400 – got it with the excellent pic cue! Saw her live in Paris in 2017. Absolutely amazing.

  5. 500 – lucky guess based on the album titles.

  6. Harrison permalink

    Wow, absolutely no clue from me.

  7. 300. Dang, the rock boat S.S deke is taking on water now! lol
    Happy Fathers Day Geoff. Enjoy it with Wendy and your daughters!

    • Not to worry, Deke – the ship’ll be back to smooth sailing next week!
      And likewise, hope the Williamsons have a nice day today too!

  8. 400. I couldn’t even figure out the clue in 400… other than the tennis player! But the mention of the two initials and surname gave it away.

    • Excellent work, HMO – I’m pleased you were still able to deduce the name with only the initials + 1 of the 3 pictures!

  9. 300. Thanks for the old movie references.

  10. 400. I’ve never been a fan…

    • Those are good weeks – when you still earn a solid score, despite not really being a fan of the artist!

  11. 500! A fun fact — I missed out on seeing this artist live because her and Dinosaur Jr performed on the same night in my city, last time they were both here a few years ago…

    • Excellent work, Adela – and that’s too bad they couldn’t have played on separate nights, both shows would have been worth attending!

  12. Zack permalink

    400. I didn’t know she was that old, or English.

    • I’m often surprised when I learn the birthdays or when the groups first formed – I think Pulp was the biggest eye-opener for me so far, I think of them from the mid-90s but they formed in 1978!

  13. Only 300 this week. I’ve heard of the name but not much else.

  14. 500 please. Now please join me in a heartfelt prayer that they don’t rerelease her stuff on vinyl (thus devaluing my own copies)!

  15. 500 for Mika, 400 for me.
