np: Rihanna - Shut Up And Drive

By Resident Mutt · Published 17 days ago

Fill is fun! I can't believe that 57D was last used in 1997 (ofc, the clue would've been rather different back then!!). I'd have liked to get one more set of long entries in but... well, I looked into the abyss, and it glared back at me.
Please feel free to guess how many bottles of wine into the cluing I was for each clue!
