My thanks to all who have participated in the “Artist of the Week” quizzes so far.

Congrats to all those who correctly identified Wu-Tang Clan last week.

The results after 4 weeks (as of Saturday afternoon – results submitted after that time will be added to next week’s spreadsheet):

Ready for Quiz #5?

Uh-huh!

.

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 #5
Record POINTS Earned (Not Artist Name) in the comments
(scroll down for additional clues)

For:

500 points………………..American artist, born in Seymour, Indiana (Ain’t that midwestern America?) in 1951.

Now I don’t want to accuse him of lying to us through song…but from what I gather, in the state of Indiana, a Town is defined as having a population of less than 2,000 residents.

And given that Seymour, Indiana has a population of over 17,000 residents, this artist really should have claimed to have been born / lived / probably die in a Small City or Municipality!

.

400 points……………….Inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2008, he has recorded several hit “heartland rock” singles, including the little ditty pictured below:

.

.

300 points……………………Perhaps you know him better by his original stage name?

.

.

.

.

.

200 points………………..Or maybe you’re more familiar with his birth name (with some spelling stretches in the puzzle below)?

.

.

.

.

.

100 points………………..The artist is J_____(ny) (Cougar) M_______________

.

Answer:  جون ميلينكامب

(Please post your points earned in the comments section)

Thanks for playing!

Verbalize the Positive

In addition to his 80s hits, I quite like his 90s singles as well, including the Human Wheels / Dance Naked title tracks!

    400. Pretty popular song, that one.

  3. Oh man that hurts 400.

  4. 500, though glad I didn’t have to spell his surname

  5. Darn it, nothing for me this week! That’s ok, I had fun. Thanks for the quiz, Geoff!

  6. A 500 that hurts so good!

  7. I seem to be getting all or nothing these days. 500.

  8. This Scarecrow gets 500 smackers Geoff!

    • The sensational start to 2022 continues, Deke!

      • I’ve never been so high in my life( the standings here at 1001 that is).
        I’m waiting for the roof to cave in at some point. lol

      • You’re like Pat Borders in the ’92/ Paul Molitor in the ’93 World Series, Deke – they were essentially batting 1000!

      • Borders man did he tear that ball apart in that series. Amazing how some guys can show up like that out of the blue.
        Moliter was always a master class at the plate.

    500 even though I’ve never been a fan. Coming from a small town myself I’ve never found much about it to sing about.

  10. A narrow 500, thanks to your clever wordplay. But I took my time before scrolling down!

    500 points! First time getting it from the bonus clue! One of my favorite artists from the 80s. Great 400 point clue too

  12. 500 for me. Easy peasy.

  13. 500 each for me and Mika.

  14. 400 please Geoff

  15. 500 ‘cos I can play that song on guitar. I capo it at the 4th fret because I can.

    • Among my favourite frets upon which to place a capo (2 currently takes the cake)!

      • Yup, 2 and four, less so 1 and three but sometimes. I even play with it on the 7th for one song!
