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.
