Ready for Quiz #48?

Please refrain from Telling Me Lies!

.

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. 500. I guess she wouldn’t have been considered a songwriter until quite late in her career.

  2. Sorry, zero points for me this week! I watched a Linda Ronstadt documentary, so I know who you’re talking about, but I forgot her name. Thanks for the quiz anyways, Geoff!

  3. 300 thanks to the cool picture clue.

  4. That album title got me 500 points. It’s an Hour Of Gold that record.

  5. Harrison permalink

    Not a clue, I’m afraid.

  6. 300 for me today.

  7. Tricky one this week Geoff. 300 as those were some great clues via the pics posted especially Lou! lol

  8. 500 for the red dirt. I am fascinated by her Lanois collaboration right now.

  9. jprobichaud permalink

    400 this week.

  10. Paul permalink

    300 today. At first could figure out which trophy it was – Oscar Lou – no. Grammy Lou – no. Oh! Emmy Lou 😀 also still have no idea the 200 equation.

    • I believe our fellow blogging friend Deke just reviewed a Lou Gramm record the other day – perhaps he sometimes performs under the pseudonym Grammy Lou!

  11. Zack permalink

    300. I’m actually not sure I’ve ever heard her, but maybe there was something on the radio once.

  12. 500 for me, 400 for an annoyed Mika.

  13. Zero for me Geoff.

  14. Only 300 for me this week.

  15. Dah, only 300 this week. I like the album she did with Knopfler.

  16. Oh dude you made this an easy 500 for me! I loooove this artist!
