Ready for Quiz #32?

Ready or Not!

.

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!

Verbalize the Positive

*Though it didn’t end up making my Top 11 Debuts List on The LeBrain Train, I’m pleased that Lauryn Hill’s debut often does appear on ‘Top/Best/Outstanding Achievement in the field of Debut Excellence’ lists – as it should, it’s a keeper!

  1. 500 – I haven’t heard their records but like Hill’s solo stuff.

    • I only know the one Hill album and the one by this group from the 500 clue – but they’re both where they ought to be on the 1001 list!

  2. Harrison permalink

    Not a clue this time I’m afraid.

  3. Paul permalink

    200 this week – thought I had it but then realized I didn’t until 200

  4. Ready or Not I’d like 500 points please

  5. Crap, I was thinking something with a root. I was so wrong…200 for me.

  6. 200 for me.

  7. Thank god for pics! 200 points. Tricky tuff week but kudos to you for making me think. lol

  8. Zack permalink

    500. I remember when they were huge.

  9. jprobichaud permalink

    500 for me. Their version of Killing me softly was super huge when I was in university.

  10. 400 but only because the clue was so good and I would have spelled her name wrong never mind the bands. Again I had to go away and think on the actual answer.

    • Cheers, Neil – and that’s exactly what I would do as a participant. Go away & ponder for a bit before scrolling to the next clue!

  11. 400. I didn’t know they were a trio.

    • Interesting that they all enjoyed success as individual artists too – no seinfeld Three Tenors ‘the other guy’ situation here!

  12. 500. That song jumped into my head the moment I saw the bonus clue at the start.

  13. No points for me this week, sorry Geoff! But I did learn something new; I had no idea that Lauryn Hill was in ‘Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit.’ I saw that movie in intermediate school for chorus and I loved the girl’s voice.

    • I forgot about her appearance in the sequel – loved the original Sister Act, classic!

      • Oh shoot I think I saw parts of the first one, but not enough for me to remember what it was about.

  14. Man it might be getting unbelievable but I need another 500 on this one, Geoff!

  15. Holen permalink

    400. The scariest unplugged album ever by Lauryn!

    • I haven’t heard it – sounds like I might stick with the Miseducation!

      • Holen permalink

        It seems like she’s having a legitimate mental breakdown during the recording.

        Todd in the Shadows did a great video about it.

  16. 500! Sorry my answer is late…

  17. 500 each for me and Mika.
