Ready for Quiz #11?

So you want to be!

.

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. If you give me the album name I’m usually sweet.

    • And you can usually count on an album / band member / song name early on, before it descends into photo puzzles, Graham!

  2. 500 she is a hero of mine. So honest.

  3. Harrison permalink

    300 please

    • Well done on the logarithms clue, Harrison!

      • Harrison permalink

        My knowledge of math has always surpassed my knowledge of certain musical artists.

  4. 500. Thankfully, I know that iconic album and its cover. I don’t think I can name you a song from it, lol The 300 clue is giving me PTSD from failing every math class. Why are their letters in may math now?

  5. 500. Have the album. She’s a class act.

  6. Nothing again. I vaguely remember the name.

  7. 400 for me this week. The answer came to me from reading mags like CREEM that featured different artists/bands and being young and having to watch my money as a teen I would have to read the magazine front to back to justify paying for it as usual there was one or two articles I was interested in or if VH was like on the cover lol..
    Cool that 40 years later it has paid off at times..lol

    • I know what you mean Deke about wanting to justify the purchase – I’m still like that when we occasionally get weekend newspapers, wanting to try to read a lot of it and not just the sports/crosswords!

  8. Zack permalink

    500. I just got a greatest hit collection of her.

  9. 500 for Mika, 400 for me.

  10. jprobichaud permalink

    500. I don’t really know her work. I just happened to recognize the album in the first clue. Lucky me. (Maybe I should check out her stuff?)

  11. Paul permalink

    500 again – small streak going!

  12. Shoots, zero points for me this week. I know the song “Because the Night” from ‘American Idol,’ but I had no idea what the artist’s name was. I still had fun though! Thanks for the quiz, Geoff!

  13. As I’m I’ll, can I please claim a late 500 please? (Coughs)

    • Never too late!
      Though the score won’t appear until next week’s spreadsheet, get well soon!

  14. Easy 500, have that album here. Saw her in concert in Montreal. Let’s goooo!
