Ready for Quiz #36?

On Sunday Sunday!


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 #36
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)


500 points………………..American group, formed in California (how fitting) in the mid-60s.

Their 1966 debut album, If You Can Believe Your Eyes & Ears, is on the 1001 list.






400 points……………….The group featured a pair of female vocalists (Cass Elliot & Michelle Phillips) and a couple of male singers (John Phillips & Denny Doherty)

Two of their biggest hits, in photo form:






300 points……………………Do you remember the song Hold On by the group, Wilson Phillips?

That trio is comprised of Carnie & Wendy Wilson (daughters of Brian Wilson) and Chynna Phillips (whose parents, John & Michelle Phillips are in this group)

Or as a clipart clue:






200 points………………..Or perhaps as a Berenstain Bears clue (minus the Bears):






100 points………………..The artist is The M_____ and the P_____




Answer: الماماس والآباء

(Please post your points earned in the comments section)

Thanks for playing!


Verbalize the Positive

I chuckled out loud at the first google translate attempt for today’s artist: The M_____s was correct, but the P____s returned ‘The Pope’ – who knows how their career may have unfolded had they opted for that moniker!

    500 please, thanks to a neat bonus clue.

  2. Wonderful clues (again!). Particularly enjoyed the one with the map. As you probably imagine, this was money in the bank for an old fart, to the tune of five hundred smackers.

  3. 500. It’s Father’s Day here so fitting choice.

  4. 300, my brain got stuck on the 3rd Amen album or it would’ve been 400.

  5. A safe and warm 500 please

  6. 400 points for me this week (coffee clearly hadn’t kicked in!)

    • There should be some sort of a score adjustment for pre vs. post coffee, like wind adjusted times in sprinting!

  7. Should’ve been 500, but sadly it is only 400.

  8. 400. I should have got it from the teaser at the start.

  9. 400 Mama and Papa Burgers to go please!

  10. Paul permalink

    Ah I missed last weeks quiz – last weekend was crazy …. Oh well make up for it this week with a 500! Love the Berenstein Besr clue😀

  11. 500! A fav of my parents who played them endlessly.

  12. Zack permalink

    500. I wonder what happened to them? Well, except for Cass.

  13. 400 as I really have only ever been aware of the greatest hits albums

  14. May I take 400 days please?

  15. No one’s gettin’ fat ‘cept my 500 points 🙂 Superb band, one of my mom’s faves. Back in the day she had one of those multi-loading record players that could play six vinyl records in turn. Guess who the job of loading the records went to? A wonderful musical introduction to my very young ears then. I still get tears in my eyes and the hairs rising on the back of the neck whenever I hear ‘Twelve Thirty’. Creeque Alley always make me smile.

    • What a great job to have at a young age!
      And that early musical education paid off today, TVTA – excellent work!

  16. Zero points for me, sorry! I almost got it, thanks to The Berenstain Bears, but I didn’t include the “s” at the end. Thanks for the quiz though, Geoff!

    • Since I included the “s” at the end in the verbalize the positive section, I’d call that a 100, given that you filled in the blank correctly, just in the singular rather that plural!

  17. 500 each for Mika and me.

  18. I had that LP, and grew up on this stuff too. 500 for me!
