According to the official Elton John website, it's "All the YOUNG Girls Love Alice."

I have two copies of the 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' album from which the track is drawn, and both list the song as 'All The Girls Love Alice'. The first line of the chorus is indeed 'All the young girls love Alice', but that isn't the title of the song. Curious to find the discrepancy.

The Divine Comedy box is throwing off the last row.

It's an interesting concept, but more of a "crossword" than a labyrinth. Too many really obscure songs to make it an Editor's pick, and too many "uncrossed squares" - words that just don't lead anywhere.
The format of the "clues" should be more intuitive. Use arrows (⇐ ➨) or some other pointer (◄☚ ☝▲) and put the clues in front or above the title rather than underneath. That may require your first row and column to be all clues, but right now your last row and column are all clues.
I'd really like to see another attempt. As I said, it's a very interesting concept.

listyguy, could you clarify what you mean by that? rockgolf, Thanks very much for your commentary - I'm taking a crack at a second attempt right now. I wasn't aware those pointers existed, so that was especially helpful. As for the obscure tracks.. well, after a few semesters of hosting campus radio programmes I've kind of lost the distinction between obscure and famous! I may end up inserting international hits (still in English) in my next attempt, but your point is more than valid. Thanks again - very helpful stuff.

I agree with rockgolf--I think it's definitely an interesting concept, and I like the idea of a word-by-word crossword (as opposed to letter-by-letter).
Abacab, do you mind if other people try their hand at this format? I don't want to step on your toes, especially if you have more planned, so I can hold off if you're still playing with it.

Tahnan, I wouldn't mind at all! Having said that, I do have at least one more in the works, and I'm rather enjoying constructing them - would you mind holding off for perhaps a week before starting your own work? I will definitely have one more posted by then, and possibly some others also, but I think others could probably do this a little better than myself, honestly. The knowledge of popular vocabulary (or in this case, music) necessary to make a really solid crossword isn't something I have in heaps; this next crossword is going to be a challenge - I'm trying to make sure it's all well-known stuff!
May 15th, 2011 at 00:54 GMT
What I meant was the cell with "Divine Comedy" in it takes up an extra line, which forces every line below it down a row. As a result, "Roy Orbison" is now in the same row as his song.
May 15th, 2011 at 01:07 GMT
Sure, not a problem, Abacab. Happy to wait, and looking forward to seeing what you do next!

Accept single character answers so it'll take "I"

abacab--interesting about Elton John. It's rather surprising that his own official website would have the title wrong.
