Ready for Quiz #24?

On Sunday Morning, no less!

.

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. Excuse Me Mr. Hey You! Everyone in this band are Different People. I’d like 500 points Please this Sunday Morning. You Can Do It and we’ll End It On This… I think I avoided any major Spoilers there

  2. 500 but I needed that little bonus hint at the start.

    • That’s what it’s there for, Graham – well played!

      • My first thought for Sunday Morning was Velvet Underground.

      • I’m getting caught up on old comments – it looks like it took so much restraint for me not to say ‘just wait until week 27’ that I forgot to reply altogether!

  3. 300 due to well that’s when I got the answer.

  4. 500 Smackers as I jammed this band on Garage Band back in the day with the girls. lol Plus they were everywhere at that time without a doubt! lol

    • I’d imagine they would be fun to play along with on Garage Band – I remember struggling with the guitar, I can play a 6-string, but had a tough time with the colourful buttons!
