The Nickel Quiz #25: Mystery Artist I

The Nickel Quiz: Mystery ArtistThis week, all the lyrics in The Nickel Quiz are by a single artist. We’re keeping the name of this artist a secret. If you can determine just one song’s original artist, that’s an automatic five points. Well, actually it’s six points. The year each song was released has been included in parenthesis as a bonus clue.

As usual, scoring is on the honor system (do not Ask Jeeves):

  • Mystery Artist: 5 points
  • Correct Song Title: 1 point
  • Maximum Score: 10 points

One thought on “The Nickel Quiz #25: Mystery Artist I”

  1. One of the best storytellers in song, Harry Chapin, of course. I sam singing the songs in my head but I don’t always remember the actual titles. Like the taxi driver songs (1 and 5), But I do know WOLD and Cat’s int he Cradle. #4 is the only one I can’t ID.
