    Explanation: Only seven letters in the grid are from the range A-G - those letters are placed in order as per on a musical staff. Reading (or singing) left to right, the tune is either 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star' or the 'Alphabet song', your choice.
    For the aforementioned previous crossword, see here.
