Ready for Quiz #43?



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. What Have I Done To Deserve 500 points? I got it from the bonus clue.

  2. Wonderful set of clues, Geoff. (Only needed one, however).

  3. 500 because well there laconic style was ever present during my formative moments in the discotheque.

  4. 500 for me. 300 for Mika.

  5. Harrison permalink

    200 please

  6. 500 West End points for me please. Enjoyed their tunes as a backdrop to the 80s.

  7. Can I pay my Artist of the Week rent with the 500 points I earned today? Absolutely

  8. Zack permalink

    300 today. I don’t know much about these guys.

  9. Not an band I know much about but at least I managed 300.

  10. 200 for me today.

  11. I gotta take 500 thanks to my friend Sam, who loved this act dearly. I didn’t know it was 1981 though, I might’ve said later. But I knew the album titles and the names.

  12. 500 as this is another act my sister liked and still does to this day. So I remember this stuff as I would ask her all the time what she was listening too since she is 8 years younger than me. If we are keeping score my brother is 10 years younger than me lol

    • Your sister has good taste, Deke – and with the perfect score, you’ve definitely got solid listening & remembering skills!

      • I didn’t do a lot of drugs back in the day lol

  13. jprobichaud permalink

    500 for me! I was supposed to see their show with New Order. I hope that still happens.

  14. Paul permalink

    300 this week!

  15. I have no clue, sorry! Oh well, I’ll get it next time hopefully. Thanks for the quiz Geoff!

  16. 400. That “lego” album looks cool!
