Puzzle 13 – “Rhyme Is Reason”

puz here / pdf here / solution here

Non-standard grid shape again: 15 wide, 19 tall. Another music-centered theme (and as both a confession and a clue, I have to say… I’m way bummed that I couldn’t get Scritti Politti into this grid, yall). Lots of 3-letter words here, so I also took it as an exercise in trying to do some more original clues for less-than-original fill entries (see 63-Across, 2-Down, 22-Down). As always, happy solving, comments welcomed, hope you enjoy.
