Mostly Musical Mini 28

· By JeffsPuzzles · Published 28 days ago

Constructor's Note: 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 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2AZH4FeGsc&ab_channel=The8thMotive), 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.”
