Ready for Quiz #30?

Now We’re Getting Somewhere!


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!


Artist of the Week #30
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)


500 points………………..Formed in Australia in 1985 (and consistently featuring at least 1 New Zealander with the surname ‘Finn’), this group makes an appearance on the 1001 list with their 1991 album, Woodface.

A few of the excellent singles from that album, in jam-packed photo puzzle form:






400 points……………….There is Something So Strong about this band’s ability to write melodic singles.

And after seeing the missing-word album cover clue below, I’m hopeful the group name will Fall At Your Feet!






300 points……………………Some may not recognize the name of their biggest international hit, Don’t Dream It’s Over.

But Hey Now, Hey Now, it’s a great ballad by any name!

The band name, as a ‘filmed in front of a live studio audience’ sitcom clue:






200 points………………..In lieu of an antonymous band name, this week, a synonymous counterpart:






100 points………………..The artist is C___________ H_______




Answer:  منزل مزدحم

(Please post your points earned in the comments section)

Thanks for playing!


Verbalize the Positive

Fall at Your Feet, terrific tune!

  1. 500 – I blogged about Neil Finn’s earlier band today so was primed to get it from the teaser clue.

  2. 500 please but the 200 point clue is a winner.

  3. 400 due to Alan Partridge

    • I wasn’t familiar with Alan Partridge – but after reading a bit about it, that sounds like something I’d enjoy!

  4. Can I have another piece of 500 points please?

  5. Harrison permalink

    300 please

  6. Sorry, no points for me this week! But I know the song “Don’t Dream It’s Over” because it was covered on ‘Glee.” Shoot, not even the clue on my favorite show could save me. Oh well, thanks for educating me on a new band, Geoff!

  7. 500 for me sir. I was just talking about them to somebody so they were fresh on my mind.

  8. Nothing for me. I don’t remember hearing this name.

  9. 500 smackers as I type this from my House!

    • Excellent work, Deke – Looks like the Rangers were relatively quiet this week on free agency?
      I’m hoping the Penguins are able to get Fleury back!

      • Vegas dumping Fleury how they did was pretty crappy.
        Drury’s trade of Pavel B to St Louis for some pucks wasn’t much better either!
        Geez! lol

      • Agreed – a Hall of Famer learning he’s been dealt through Twitter, not exactly classy.
        I’m curious if he’ll just retire (and maybe make a comeback at some point).
        But to give away the Vezina winner for a relatively unknown prospect, yikes

      • I hope he plays again Geoff. He’s one of the classiest guys out there in pro sports.

  10. Paul permalink

    500 please !

  11. jprobichaud permalink

    400 for me this week.

  12. Holen permalink


  13. Zack permalink

    400. Thanks for doing this every week. It’s always fun and I look forward to it!

  14. 500 each for me and Mika

  15. 500. Excellent. The clues this week were out of the box!

  16. 500. Congested Home, lol

  17. Oh man I LOVE THIS BAND. 500000 points please.

  18. A slice of the 500 pie for me this week, Geoff!
