Ready for Quiz #13?

I am…I said!

.

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!

  1. 500, unsurprisingly since I’m a supporter.

    • The support paid dividends today, Graham!

      • I read the first couple of verses from the opening track of Haim’s album last year as a Diamond tribute:

        New York is cold
        I tried the winter there once, nope
        Clearly the greatest city in the world
        But it was not my home
        I felt more alone

    300 please

  3. 300 but that 200 point clue is priceless

  4. Ok 100 points please (that last clue saved my butt haha)! Thanks for the quiz Geoff!

  5. Zack permalink

    400. Didn’t realize he’s been around so long!

  6. 400 points please. Bah Bah Dah!

  7. 400 for me. I was close on the 500 as it was on the tip of my tongue, but sadly couldn’t think it and then it hit me with the second clue. I can’t believe he’s 80. I am getting old.

  8. Gee whiz. If I didn’t get that one at the first fence I’d drown myself in red red wine.

  9. Holen permalink

    300

  10. 400 smackers…..Bah Bah Bah…

    • Not too shabby at all, Deke – and I’ve been enjoying seeing the Rangers scores lately, some nice offensive outbursts!

      • Did you see Adam Fox with those 3 saves when the goalie was pulled? lol

      • Those were spectacular!
        It’s too bad they weren’t able to tie it up – that would have been the ultimate TSN Turning Point!

      • Going to be hard to get in the playoffs but they are playing to win which is all you can ask for. They are showing up..

  11. I’m not a believer but I scored 400 regardless.

    500 points this week please – got it on the teaser phrase at the beginning even before the first clue – my wife is a huge fan!

  13. 500 thanks to the quote at the top.

  14. jprobichaud permalink

    500 for me. This is another artist of whom my parents were fans. Hence, the reason why I watched The Jazz Singer when I was young.

    • Your parents have been an excellent resource for this year’s quizzes. JP!

      • jprobichaud permalink

        Haha. Yeah. I guess it’s good that they were into music. Back in those days, though, I wasn’t too pleased because I didn’t share their tastes.

  15. 500 each, ba ba ba

  16. 300. Had no idea he wrote those hits you mentioned. Diverse styles.

  17. 400 for me, Geoff.

  18. 300 please Geoff. I had no idea he was responsible for that UB40 abomination.

  19. 500, easy pickings. One of my lovely wife’s favourites.
