Ready for Quiz #16?

Do You Remember?


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!

      That was his best stuff! With Peter Gabriel singing. His solo stuff really grew on me though, as did his era of Genesis. It’s lightweight and poppy compared to the early prog Genesis stuff, but it’s not bad for what it is at all.

      • I’m not a huge Genesis fan and the only reason why I know who Phil Collins is has to with the fact that “Against All Odds” was a popular tune to cover on American Idol.

      • Your American Idol knowledge will come in handy in 8 days or so, Lana!

    • My pleasure, Lana – good work!

  18. 400 points please!

  19. 500 for one of my all-time favourites!

  20. Holen permalink

    500 for this week and last week as well!
