Ready for Quiz #46?

Someone Like You!


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 #46
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments

500 points………………..English artist, born in London in 1988.

Her 2015 album, 25, is on the most recent version of the 1001 albums list…






400 points……………….and on a previous version of the 1001 albums list, her 2011 album, 21, also made an appearance. Rumour Has It, even if it’s no longer deemed ‘must-hear,’ it’s still a pretty good album as well!

200 points………………..and a second clue, featuring a children’s song title from When We Were Young

Verbalize the Positive

I enjoy that my students are more clever than I’ll ever be.

I recall one student’s business project, about avoiding personal finance mistakes: Rolling in the Deep Debt!

  1. 500, even though I don’t fully appreciate her talents.

  2. 500. Couldnt name you a single song she ever made, but I could name every album title due ro the memorable naming scheme

  3. 500 and well my mum likes her.

  4. Harrison permalink

    300 please

  5. 500 please. As a fully paid up punk and metal fan I have to say, she’s phenomenal. I love her. The latest songs might be a bit MOR but THAT voice slays me.

  6. 400 for me today.

  7. 500 for me please.

  8. 500 points as this album was at number 1 and for at least 25 weeks lol..Sue has this one in her music library which is separate from mine…lol

    • You never know with the Venn diagram musical overlap – for our collections, it was Billy Joel & weezer. With you & Sue, I imagine there’s some fun overlap there too!

      • lol…well for the longest time we had the same iTunes account so when I bought Maiden,Scorps etc she would get the files as well lol…I was amused by that lol

      • And jumping from this artist to Maiden on a playlist, slightly different sounds!

      • Indeed!

  9. Zack permalink

    500. Can’t wait for the Oprah interview tonight.

    • It’s funny – I had set these up weeks/months in advance, so the timing was accidental. But I’m pleased it ended up being semi-relevant timing, even if not on purpose!

  10. Paul permalink

    500 this week! Your 300 point clue has to be one of your all time classics!
    Interesting that 25 has supplanted 21 on the list as I think it’s a much superior album

    • Much appreciated, Paul!
      I gather that’s been a trend with the newer editions of the list – the same artist will stay in, but a newer album will replace an older (like Radiohead with In Rainbows replacing Hail to the Thief, Amy Winehouse Back to Black replacing Frank, or this artist!)

      • Paul permalink

        That’s interesting since I would think if an album is good enough to make the list it should stay on the list unless it gets bumped off by a better album which might be a newer one by the same artist but not necessarily. But what do I know. I imagine determining how to update the list is pretty complicated

      • I’ve developed a greater appreciation too for the challenge they had of deciding which ‘new’ albums would remain essential over time.
        It’s relatively easy to look back 20/30/40 years and acknowledge the albums that have lasted, but it wouldn’t be easy to predict which stuff released today will still be relevant years from now.

      • Paul permalink

        Yeah I would think they would almost Be impossible

  11. jprobichaud permalink

    500. I don’t really know who work but she’s pretty inescapable right now (and she’s being blamed for the vinyl shortages too!).

    • It’s funny, when I ‘scheduled’ this post a while ago, I had no idea it would end up being so unintentionally timely!

  12. 500 each for me and Mika. We could have had it all, and indeed, we did

  13. 500 lucky guess from age range and nationality… then the computer clue put a big smile on my face 🙂

  14. 500 points please! She’s the only British artist I know that has numbers for her album titles. Plus seasons 10-11 of ‘American Idol’ featured a lot of her music.

  15. 500 please.

  16. I wouldn’t have known the birth year, but the numbered-album-titles clued me, as it was something Harry Connick, Jr. used to do too. 500 for me!

  17. Another 500! One of the few modern artists that is in my wheelhouse.
