The seed for this one, not surprisingly, was 5D, which I first thought of when constructing my two Set List puzzles a month or so ago. Joni Mitchell has remained one of my all-time favorites since the early 70s, and her fourth album is phenomenal, justifiably considered #3 on Rolling Stone’s most recent list of the 500 Greatest Rock Albums of All Time. My views on Taylor Swift have pulled a “uey,” to use some bad crossword fill. I used to dismiss her as just another bland pop star, but now that I’ve given her a chance, I think she’s an exceptionally talented songwriter and performer. Her first acoustic album from 2020, “folklore,” is really nice.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the puzzle. Please share generously!
