Puzzle 100 – “Play It Again”

puz here / pdf here / solution here

Puzzle 100! I’ve had such fun bringing these to yall every week for nearly two years now. And last week I promised something big for this milestone, and I meant it literally. So this time around, it’s this site’s first ever Sunday-sized puzzle.

We’ve got a themed 21×21 here, loosely inspired by how we all love a good cover song. A new creative vision. One might even say… a musical re-make, given new context by a new performer. You’ll see what I mean.

I’ve appreciated every kind comment and encouragement from every solver who’s stopped by this site for the first hundred… and I look forward to keeping on keeping on, with yet more here every Tuesday.

Happy solving as always. Comments welcomed for sure. Hope yall enjoy.

    Wow, this 21×21 is a treat! And I’m a fan of yours because I’m a Baby-Boomer who has over 2K LPs and I always enjoy whenever you put some of the bands/music from the mid-60s to the mid-90s in your puzzles. (In my opinion, that was the best era in popular music!)

    Thank you so much for putting in such great efforts to keep your fans amused!

  3. Congrats on 100! Always a fun solve.

  4. The standout clue for me was 98D “Power forward”, and I immediately started thinking B-Ball, but the answer was “propel”. Very nice misdirect!
    And TY for 69D – “Deep Springs College” sounds fantastic, and it was a great inclusion by you!
