Meta Prompt: The answer to the meta is an album title
This meta came to me as I was listening to the band that recorded the album that is the answer to the meta. You might need Google for this one. ;-) Answer & explanation: https://www.xword-muggles.com/viewtopic.php?p=112378#p112378

    Good one, Ben. Nice construction. I needed to lean on the internet to solve this one. Thanks.
    • Laura M 🤓12:16 · 13 days ago
      This band was in the most recent MMMM as well! I studied the grid very closely so I remember :-) Not super familiar to me, but having looked them up I do remember and like at least one of their songs ("Breathless"). Nice puzzle, thanks!
      • benchen71 constructor · 13 days ago
        Check out "Runaway" - it's a stunningly beautiful song from their first album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fMUYU8DC1U
      • The Corrs were the first band I saw in concert, when my mum took my sister and me as kids over 20 years ago! Now I feel old.
        • Cindy Heisler 2s · 13 days ago
          Great meta, Ben. I usually have problems with musical metas, but I saw this one right away. First meta solve of the week for me. Thanks!
          • Capn Rick 🤓8:00 · 13 days ago
            Nice job, Ben! I'm not familiar with the band, but I love the way you tied in the corners.
            • Alex Sisti 2s · 13 days ago
              Great band, each more beautiful than the next...
              • boharr 3s · 13 days ago
                Never heard of the band or the album. Par for the course. Google needed,
                • JHSeeman 2s · 13 days ago
                  Good One, nice meta with the names tied into the album. Thanks
                  • Ergcat 16:27 · 13 days ago
                    Excellent puzzle! Took me a little while to get the correct names ( Andrea not Andre, Caroline not Carol, etc) but once I did it was quick to The Corrs. Then I listed the albums and quickly saw TALK in the grid corners! Clever construction there! Thank you for a fun puzzle, Ben!
                    • Ergcat 16:27 · 13 days ago
                      I just realized what you did at 40a!!! You gave a bonus hint! CORES
                      40A CORESHearts, and also where you'll find the members of the band of the meta answer
                      sounds like…..
                      • hoover 3s · 13 days ago
                        Me too, only I had Caroline, Andrea, Jimmi, and Sharon. That was close enough to get me to The Corrs, at which point I remembered 40A
                        40A CORESHearts, and also where you'll find the members of the band of the meta answer
                        . Wikipedia gave their best known album, which sent me back to the grid to check the corners. Great construction!
                      • whimsy 🤓11:44 · 13 days ago
                        Had to google but I just loved the way I knew that if I went back to the grid and checked, I'd be able to narrow down which album. :D Terrific! Thanks Ben!
                        • Carolyn 3s · 13 days ago
                          Sounds like I need to check them out! Thanks for the puzzle.
                          • Qmark 4s · 13 days ago
                            Nice one, Ben. Knew the band but not the album.
                            • DrTom 3s · 13 days ago
                              Whoops, premature detect elation. I, of course (Corrs, Corrs) submitted the band name, was told I was incorrect, said “What!” then read the directions. Nice one with LOTS OF internal references/ Easter eggs. Loved the last step. I do love me some Irish fiddle in a song, it just leaves me breathless (oh and I looked for; panting, gasping, asthmatic or puffing in the grid😊)
                              • KayW 🤓8:06 · 13 days ago
                                I did have to google to learn the band. And then couldn't figure out which album was the answer. Lucky for me (and for whoever tallies incorrect submissions) they only have seven of them. AFTER I hit on the answer, I noticed T-A-L-K in the corners. Doh!!! Now to listen to a few tracks...
                                • Tyrpmom 2s · 13 days ago
                                  Listening to them now. Thanks.
                                  • Abide 🤓12:06 · 13 days ago
                                    several albums later, the shilling dropped...nice one!
                                    • Darth 🤓9:59 · 13 days ago
                                      I've never heard of this group, but solved with the help of Google.
                                      • Sharkicicles 2s · 12 days ago
                                        Thanks Ben!
                                        • Mikey G 6:14 · 12 days ago
                                          Nice one, and I'll have to spin this album later in honor of this meta!
                                          • woozy 15:39 · 12 days ago
                                            Whoo... did I need the internet for this. "Bands with members Carol, Dan, Jimmi and Sharon? No...."
                                            • benchen71 constructor · 12 days ago
                                              Yes, I guess I didn't consider how many names can be derived from those entries! Sorry about that.
                                              • woozy 15:39 · 11 days ago
                                                I'm not complaining. It was fair. I'm just surprised how inefficient google was was I had any of the names even a little off.

                                                  Lol my first try was "Jim, Carol, Sharona, and Andre"
                                                • HeadinHome 🤓15:28 · 11 days ago
                                                  Def. had to google these names to get a group, but now that I looked them up and gave a listen, of course I have heard their songs! Great puzzle, and getting to the album to choose wasn’t hard!
