Ready for Quiz #8?

This is the One!

.

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 suspected from the bonus hint.

  2. 500 baggy points i guess

  3. 200 points, please! The Disney movie saved my butt lol!

  4. I’ll take 200,also thanks to Disney.

  5. 300 this week

  6. 400 for me as I know of them but don’t know them, but the pictures helped tremendously this time.

  7. I’d better know this for 500, they had half a song played at my first Sausagefest.

  8. 500 (I previously lived in Manchester for years)

  9. jprobichaud permalink

    500 for me. Your bonus clue had me humming the song and I didn’t even need to finish reading the first clue. A great band with two excellent albums.

    • I had a feeling the full first clue wouldn’t be needed, JP – or needed at all in this case!

  10. 400. I know of them since Sarah is really into them. Never really listened to them myself.

  11. Zack permalink

    400. Really impressive considering I’ve never heard them and just recognized the name.

  12. Paul permalink

    400 this week. No nothing about the band but got it on the pic clue

  13. 500 for Mika, 400 for me.

    • You didn’t end up needing it, but I had a feeling you’d know the wrestling reference, James!

  14. Full 500 points this week.

  15. Hooray! An easy one!

  16. Harrison permalink

    No clue, so it doesn’t matter that I missed this one last week.

  17. 500! Love the wordplay. Big when I spent time in the UK.
