Ready for Quiz #14?

Say What’s On Your Mind!

.

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. Don’t know if she’ll ever get that Tony.

  2. 500 each for me and Mika.

  3. 400 points please, If I could turn back and read the first clue again I may have done better.

  4. 300 points please. Adam Lambert covered her on ‘American Idol.’ Thanks for the quiz Geoff!

  5. Very good. I remember learning her surname back around the time of her 1973 album.
    All this without a Groundhog Day clue!

  6. 500. That movie is one of my all-time favs.

  7. 400. I never knew the last name.

    • And I don’t know if I’d ever thought about her having a last name until this year – the mononym was always instantly identifiable!

    400 for me. I know that film well but I misread the first clue.

  9. 400 if I could turn back time it would have been 500.

  10. Zack permalink

    400. No way she’s that young!

  11. 300 because it’s that type of year it seems, reading the clues again with knowledge it seems I knew the answer at 500 go figure.

  12. 500. The EGOT tipped me.

  13. 500, though I was thinking of the wrong film (still 1987) but about witches.

  14. Paul permalink
