Title: Bands Together
Theme: Answers are phrases made up of the names of two bands.
22A. Elevated sight in the Windy City = Chicago Train
36A. All the cars going the same way = One Direction Traffic
55A. “Absolutely” = Yes No Doubt
62A. They’re seen spread on the back of a quarter = Eagles Wings
72A. Kind of pie or doughnut = Boston Cream
78A. Like child-safe cleaning products = Poison Free
95A. Lark for a Halloween hooligan = Fun Smashing Pumpkins
117A. What many Black Friday shoppers do at midnight = Rush The Doors
The fact that I managed to finish this puzzle – and did so error-free – is actually amazing considering that I’ve never heard of some of these bands. These are the ones I have heard of: Chicago, Eagles (the correct name is The Eagles), Wings (Paul McCartney’s band), Smashing Pumpkins, and The Doors.
