Ready for Quiz #6?

If not today, maybe One February Friday!

.

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 x 2

a) I’m happy to own a used LP of Welcome to the Pleasuredome – even happier that it once belonged to a friend of mine, and that I found her old copy (with her unmistakable ALL CAPS last name on the inside of the album cover) at a local shop!

b) Really enjoyed last night’s LeBrain Train episode, featuring the surprise premiere of the new Tee Bone track, COMMUNITY!

  1. 500 for Mika! 400 for me.

    500. That’s a pretty good album. Couple big hits there.

  3. 500 I may have had my Liverpool passport revoked if I got that wrong.

  4. 500, although the February Friday reference went right over my head.

  5. Nothing for me, but I had fun anyways. Thanks for the quiz, Geoff! I looked up that Pleasuredome album after I failed to score any points and I had no idea that was a band name. I thought it was a movie title. By the way, it was great seeing you on the LeBrain Train and I loved your banana shaker!

  6. I knew I had heard the album title but I blanked but I have seen Zoolander more than a few times so I know to “Relax’ and claim 400 for this week. This act was huge when I was in highschool for about a year! lol

  7. Thanks for coming out last night Geoff, that was really special. Mikey Goes to 500.

  8. 200 today. I’ll have to get out Zoolander again.

  9. 400! I didn’t make it that far into Zoolander… 😬

    • I love the original – and I tried valiantly and failed miserably to make it through the sequel!

  10. Zack permalink

    400. I’ve never heard anything by them except the hit single.

  11. Gimme 500!

  12. 500 for me. Love that song! Never heard the album though.

  13. … and… Relax… my first 500 points this year, phew 🙂 Up the Reds!

  14. Harrison permalink

    400 please

  15. Paul permalink

    500 again this week. Recognized the album title even though they were not my cup of tea so to speak

    • Those are good weeks, Paul – when you’re not necessarily a big fan but earn a perfect score anyways!

  16. 500 please.

  17. 500 here. I didn’t know 1980 but I knew the album title so now I can relax.
