    Favourite Tossman clue this week: 1 Down. But if you didn’t know the song the clue might be baffling!

    Some other interesting examples of clue-setting this week:

    25A: Slogan (‘MOTTO’) goes back (‘OTTOM’) to AN = an empire once in the Middle East (the definition).
    16 D: Animal in hardback (the definition, ie an animal with a shell) tries too erratically (ie an anagram of TRIES TOO)
    17D: The whole world (‘EARTH’) appears in victory (‘WIN’) = to deteriorate (the definition)
