The 15 Artists Meme

Following the example from Outi and Jani, here's my picture (click on it to get a bigger one).

What I did is that I took iTunes, and told it to get 15 random songs. I then hunted down an image of each artist, and mashed them together.

Your job, should you choose to accept it, is to recognize the artists.

Some of these are really easy, and some of them are very hard.

Good luck!


I'll hit out the easy ones.

3. Kari Väänänen 5. Hurriganes 6. Rauli Badding Somerjoki 10. Neljä Ruusua (possibly in their 4R-sideproject?) 14. 22-Pistepirkko

Is number two Jarre? Also, I won't touch 11 with a ten feet pole.

--Merten, 23-Mar-2006

Yup, #2 is Jarre. Other than that, you're spot on.

--JanneJalkanen, 23-Mar-2006

I'm guessing #12 is A-ha.

--Jani, 23-Mar-2006

#1 is Shakira #9 is real familiar but just can't put a name on that face, one of the guys from Earth, Wind & Fire

--tuomas, 23-Mar-2006

#7 is MAX. #4 looks annoyingly familiar but I just can't dig up a name for them. :P For #15 two of the guys look like they are from l'arc~en~ciel, but otherwise I have no clue who they might be.

--Ude, 24-Mar-2006

12 is NOT A-ha (but the time period is right).

1 is Shakira.

7 is MAX (well spotted!)

9 is NOT anyone from Earth, Wind & Fire.

15 is not l'arc~en~ciel, either.

--JanneJalkanen, 24-Mar-2006

Isn't #12 Duran Duran in their mid-career phase?

Is #9 Bobby Brown? Mr. Don't worry, be happy.

--Joel, 24-Mar-2006

Nope, #12 is not Duran Duran either.

#9 is correct, though the man's name is Bobby ~McFerrin, not Bobby Brown. Recognizing the song is acceptable, though ;)

--JanneJalkanen, 24-Mar-2006

So, the following are still missing: 4, 8, 11 (come on, guys!), 12, 13, and 15.

--JanneJalkanen, 24-Mar-2006

# 11 is Olivia Newton-John & John Travolta and # 12 is Living In The Box.

--Mika, 24-Mar-2006

Number 4 isn't by any chance Laputa? Damn that photo is bothering me.

--Ude, 24-Mar-2006

Mika: both correct. Ude: nope. Still missing 4,8,13 and 15.

Here are the three-point hints:

  • 4 - misspelled colour
  • 8 - synth guru
  • 13 - Finnish classic
  • 15 - "divine hand"

--JanneJalkanen, 24-Mar-2006

*Slaps forehead*, number 4 is Glay. :)

--Ude, 24-Mar-2006

# 15 is Feeder, # 13 is Sielun Veljet and # 8 is Robert Moog

--Mika, 24-Mar-2006

Ude: right you are :-)

Mika: all wrong.

--JanneJalkanen, 24-Mar-2006

Okay, and for one point hints:

  • 8: most known for a piece first released 1969, which became an international instrumental dance hit in 1972. Sold over 1 Megacopies in Germany alone. This song is still occasionally heard, with a numerous amount of covers.
  • 13: first album in February 1987; latest release in 2000. Sounds of November.
  • 15: any go player should recognize this band with a bit of creative googling.

--JanneJalkanen, 24-Mar-2006

#8 is Gershon Kingsley.

--Jani, 25-Mar-2006

Oops, something blew my... risuaita character in the previous. So thats number 8, not 1.8.

--Jani, 25-Mar-2006

Jani: right you are! (I fixed your hashes)

--JanneJalkanen, 25-Mar-2006

13 is Miljoonasade

--tuomas, 25-Mar-2006

tuomas is correct. 15 still missing...

--JanneJalkanen, 25-Mar-2006

And not even go player: Kids Alive... 15

--Spinsteri, 26-Mar-2006

Yes! Spinsteri wins the reward!

Thank you for all who replied.
