Ready for Quiz #2?

You’re gonna leave ’em all in awe, awe, awe!

.

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

In games of name that tune, I enjoy singing only the opening “you” lyric from Hot n Cold – and I’m always impressed when participants are able to immediately identify the singer & song right away!

    400. Apparently, I’m more familiar with her earlier work than I am her latter day work. Still, not really my cuppa.

  2. 400 because I could somewhat remember chemistry and struggled through the other picture clues without that it would be 0

  3. 500. Pretty sick of Roar.

    • There’s a lyric in that one, “I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything,” that at the time, I thought was quite clever.
      But in the era of false news, the opposite seems to be true – these days when one takes a stand on something, they’d be more likely to fall for things that would support that belief!

  4. 500 points please, Geoff! The ‘Prism’ album clue helped me out BIG TIME!!! I almost forgot that album until John from 2loud2oldmusic did a post about this artist late last year. Thanks for the quiz!

  5. 400 thanks to the chemistry.

  6. 500 as I heard a lot of her in this house at one point!

    • Tremendous start to the 2022 quizzes, Deke!

      • Sorry I name dropped the artist of the week in the comments 🙄

      • No worries, Deke – I saw the name and was able to edit the comment to ‘her’ rather than the name. Crisis averted!

      • Great teaching instincts! We’re doing house renos as this weekend we ripped up living room hallway and 3 bedrooms i think the dust has fried my brain!

      • Hope the renos are going smoothly, Deke!

  7. A sad 500. I really should not have known this. LOL

  8. Paul permalink

    400 this week!

  9. 500 for Mika, 400 for me. That’s more like what I’d expect.

  10. Zack permalink

    500. She’s the love of my life.

  11. Easy one for me. 500!

  12. Harrison permalink

    400 please.

  13. 400! Not my thing…

  14. Just 400 this week. Still no 500 for 2022…

  15. I only got 500 because her CDs go through my work often enough I remembered those titles lol. Also, I have mostly forgiven that hockey player in the last clue for kneeing our Captain in the head last year. Mostly. I mean, I know it wasn’t intentional, I know he tried to get out of the way, I know he took his lumps for it when he probably didn’t have to, but still. It changed the series and lead to another first round exit.

    • The Penguins are due for a getting past the first round playoff appearance this year as well – I wouldn’t mind a Leafs/Pens conference final one bit!
