Ready for Quiz #9?

It happens every day, no matter what you say!

.

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 loved Mars Attacks, but I think I’m in the minority.

  2. 500 the man is an icon and his work with CSNY is a high point of YouTube land.

    • I’ve got Long TIme Gone playing as I type – I had no idea this existed, thanks for letting me know!

      • I think this is one of those strange combinations that actually works I think it’s the excess hipsterdom on display

  3. That first clue was generous, Geoff, and I thank you, as the second was in ‘say wha?’ territory.

    What a voice.

    • When I was looking up his date of birth, I quite liked the line I saw describing his voice as a “full -throated, robust baritone” – sounds about right!

  4. 200 points for me, not bad! Thanks for the quiz, Geoff!

  5. 500 please. A class Welsh superstar indeed!

  6. Harrison permalink

    Much better, I’ll take 500 please

  7. 400 as I loved watching how they always piped that tune over the Carleton dance lol

  8. 500. Glad I’ve seen Mars Attacks!

  9. 400. Ah yes, I remember that dance.

  10. The trivial James Bond knowledge finally pays off! 500.

    • It took a while for the return on investment from the time spent on your Bond series, Kevin – but like the long time running lyric, with an eventual 500 points, Well Worth the Wait!

  11. jprobichaud permalink

    500. Thankfully, I remembered that iconic appearance in Mars Attacks!

  12. 500 each for me and Mika. Makes me think of this https://youtu.be/Tv1l1eUhN-E

  13. Zack permalink

    500 pussycat. A Whoa a Whoa whoa!

  14. 300 this week

  15. Paul permalink

    500 this week! Funny I actually got it based on the fact that he is from Wales. Only famous artist I have heard that is from there.

  16. An easy 500. My lovely wife is a big fan. I know, I know…

    • It’s not unusual to be a fan of this fellow!

      • It would be for me lol. My lovely wife and I have a deal: I listen to SLAYER!! \m/ \m/ and Gojira/Mastodon/Opeth/etc when I’m in the car alone. She listens to Neil Diamond and this guy when she’s alone. In this way, peace is maintained!
