    Freude, schöner Götterfunken,
    Tochter aus Elysium!
    Wir betreten feuertrunken,
    Himmlische dein Heiligtum!
    Deine zauber binden wieder
    Was die Mode streng geteilt;
    Alle Menschen werden Brüder,
    Wo dein saftner Flügel weilt!

  • Did Ariana Grande recently switch to blond hair? In any case I don't think she was already active in the music industry in 2003. But it's always nice to welcome somebody new here on the forum. And I'll keep her in mind for the future.


    In my opinion there can be no doubt that it's indeed Gwen Stefani. But technically that's not the correct answer, yet. She recorded the song with her band before she opened a new chapter in her life by starting her solo career, so along with the song's title I need the name of the band.


    As an additional help, the correct answer is hidden in this post's text.

  • No doubt her band was called No Doubt. ;)

  • All the time I was wondering that nobody came up with the name of the song. Now I realize that in my original post I did indeed only ask for the name of the singer. So I give you one more chance to guess the song's title. As I told you, it's hidden in the last post. But you can also quite easily find it by googling the snippet of the song text in the picture.


    By the way: How can you tell apart bots from real users?

  • A combination of generic-ass-name, an irrelevant, or random comment, and the greatest offender, a spammy link in the comment itself, or in the signature is a telltale sign, that a user is a spambot. Also, when you're a moderator for so many years, it's just an instinct at this moment.

  • The next participant is from a movie from 1960. It's the screen adaptation of a classic work of science fiction. The story spans more than 800 000 years which might be a record. Here he is:

  • I wasn’t very active over the last weeks. The reason was a massive computer problem. But I’m glad I could save all my data. Now I got a new laptop and successfully reinstalled all the software I’m working with. So let’s go again!


    As Eggyslav found out (with a little help of mine), the band I was looking for in the last entry was No Doubt. And just for the sake of completeness, the song in question was “It’s my Life”.


    To celebrate my comeback I chose a song, again. It’s a cheerful one with quite a funny video. And although it’s singer often gets criticized for the banality of her songs, in this piece she’s quite self-deprecating:







    Who knows the song, who can tell me the singer’s name?
