"Pop" Quiz

I love midway, sideshow and carnival art. It is usually delightfully tacky, amateurish and always colorful. And it doesn't seem to matter where the midway is...the Minnesota State Fair, here in Mexico or even Europe..the artwork is amazingly similar in nature. It's like there is a course offered somewhere called Midway Art 101.

But once in awhile, you will encounter some really professional looking art. Which brings us to today's post.

Remember that tilt-o-whirl I featured last week in midway rides? Well, it was totally covered with air brushed portraits of Pop and Rap singers. (although I include the latter category with reservation!). I tired to identify all nine of them but required help for two of them. So my score was 7 out of 9.

So, without looking at the answers, see how many of them you can identify. Ask your children if you help!


A.



B and C




D.




E.




F.





G.






H.




I.

7 out of 9 for me....got all the women, but clueless about 2 of the men....showing my age or lack of interest in rap!

I got two - but had the artwork been a little better I would have got about five ;-)

0/9 for me Wayne. I quit trying to keep up after the Smokey Robinson / Marvin Gaye era. I could still pick Smokey or Marvin out though but they are never included on these things.

I will be interested to see how Calypso does!

I definitely flunked the quiz!

I don't like that kind of music, so I only knew 3 out of them all just because I recognized the faces!

Only 4 for me .. B, C, F & I

Linda Dorton said...

Eminem and JLo....and three of the names I don't recognize at all. I guess the only music I follow anymore is whatever's on American or Latin American Idol. Feeling my age here, friend.

I thought E was Hannah Montana or Miley Cyrus (whatever her name was) Had no clue on A or F. So, which 2 did you miss?
