Double Meaning - January 2021

A monthly, music-themed meta crossword published at noon on the first Tuesday of every month. The puzzles increase in difficulty each month, and at year end there is a 13th puzzle (the "Mega-Meta") that invokes each of the 12 monthly puzzles. Currently available at https://pmxwords.com/, as well as through the Washington Post website here: MMMM at WaPo

Solved. I’m new to this puzzle this year. I’m kinda worried because I don’t know a whole lot about music. But I got this one. Yay!

Top of the world, Ma! (And the last time this year you'll find me in a tie for first.)

Solved. I should have set a reminder last week that First Tuesday is Second Tuesday in January.

Yikes! I almost forgot about MMMM this month. (Must have accidentally zapped or somehow missed the email.)

On the board!

And now looking up Alessia Cara songs. (Makes me realize how old I am. I've heard the name ... maybe.)

You could always submit a mega meta guess and have last (or maybe first!) all to yourself

Got it solved, guess that means I’m “on board.”
This is my first MMMM, still learning to language!

Good point... did we ever adopt an MMMM "Honey I'm home"-type proclamation? If we didn't, I'm thinking it should be a song title.

I did the same thing. Not sure how I missed the email. And as for the Alessia Cara songs -the one I was most familiar with was from an Ulta Beauty commercial. Always wondered who the artist was.
