Ready for Quiz #15?

We got to get on our way ’cause we’re movin’ too slow!

.

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!

.

400 points……………….and he shares a surname with a 1968 Guess Who song, which references several of his timeless tunes (such as Early Morning Rain and Rosanna). And in French, he would be called “pied léger.”

.

300 points……………………If You Could Read My Mind…I suppose this (Celebrity Chef + Current Mayor of Chicago) puzzle clue would be a trifle unnecessary!

  1. 500. Had to think of a Canadian songwriter born in 1938, which wasn’t too hard – little older than Joni and Neil…

  2. Harrison permalink

    500 pleased. Guessed at the Cancon clue and the birth year based on what the Lebrain Train has led me to believe is the best Canadian artist.

  3. 400 for me. I could only think of two people that were old enough.

  4. Got it at 500! He and my aunt dated in high school. True story.

  5. 500 from the teaser clue at the beginning

  6. 500! No need to hand in my Canada card this morning!

  7. 500 or I would’ve been a wreck.

  8. jprobichaud permalink

    500. Iconic is a good word that describes this guy,

  9. Zack permalink

    300. So glad I could remember the mayor’s name.

  10. 500 as I watched the brilliant documentary about this artist as at his age he was still packing em in at Massy Hall which was featured in it as well.

    • I heard a bit on CBC about him being the first act to perform at the newly renovated Massey Hall – his hundred-and-somethingth time playing the venue!

  11. 400. Merci. So glad I’ve been living in France these past 10+ years to grab that clue 😀

  12. 400 points each for me and Mika. The Homestarmy will protect us if we find him cweepin’ awound our back stair.

  13. Sorry, no clue. Thanks for the quiz anyways, Geoff! I learned something new today.

  14. Canadian citizenship intact! 500!
