All You Need Is _ _ _ _: Your Diversion for the Day

I can probably count the number of crossword puzzles I’ve actually finished on one hand (I’m more of a Sudoku girl), so I really didn’t have much sense of how to actually make one. Still, it was really interesting to come up with answers and try to reverse-engineer a puzzle to match.

BADGE WORK UPDATE: PUZZLERS

A task for this badge requires scouts to create a crossword puzzle, based on a theme. After playing around with a few ideas, it seemed to me that a good theme ought to have a lot of  familiar words and phrases with which to play around. In other words, electrical engineering didn’t really work too well as subject matter for me.

But Beatles song titles sure did.

So here’s your diversion for the day. Should kill a few minutes if you’re middle aged. If you’re younger, you may actually need to ask a parent for help (and they should shame you into learning the canon).

ALL YOU NEED IS _ _ _ _

All answers to this crossword puzzle are either full or partial titles of Beatles songs. If the clue is italicized, it represents a lyrical line and the answer is the song’s full title. Partial song title clues are “fill in the blank” answers.

You can right-click on the image to save to you computer. Print if you must, and use an old-fashioned pen if you like. Answer to this puzzle in the next post!
