Welcome to the antepenultimate MMM. I’ve decided to start something different with my mid-week puzzles after I’ve reached 30 of these, so stay tuned for further news.
“Spanning the globe,” to quote the old Wide World of Sports intro, this week’s MMM includes musicians from the US, England, Scotland, and Russia, and song titles from Japan and the Middle East, with a nod to Brazil as well. If you solve it, you can enjoy the “thrill of victory”; fortunately, you can reveal any answers that stump you and thus avoid the “agony of defeat.”
