Been Around That Track

· By M Forest · Published 6 months ago

Constructor's Note: Yes, there are 3! The spanner holds the secret.
This puzzle is for the April 2022 midi contest. I hope you enjoy the slight meta hinted at by the clue at 21A! Please do listen to the song for an added bonus. Or don't (Caution: theme spoiler ahead!): "Let me hear you say, this shit is bananas / B-A-N-A-N-A-S / This shit is bananas / B-A-N-A-N-A-S"
