137 solvers got the October Muller Meta, which is on the low end. We were looking for a song from the 1970s, and while there were no long theme entries, we did have three shorter ones: 5-A and 66-A were BEGIN and END, both unclued, while 67-A explains: [Game in which the king starts at the center (well, close) of one side of the board and moves one square at a time horizontally, vertically, or diagonally] = CHESS.
So it looks like we’re going to start at one of the squares in BEGIN, move one space in any direction like the king (see title, “Move Like the King”), and wind up at END below, spelling our song title along the way.
And that’s precisely what happened: a little trial-and-error gets you to the last lines of our contest answer, the 1978 disco hit “Boogie Oogie Oogie”, which are GET DOWN, BOOGIE OOGIE OOGIE, GET DOWN, as in the grid at above right. I first spotted the GET DOWN up top, then its twin below, then the BOOGIE, and then the rest.
So this is an interesting idea, but I think I may be missing some connections. I’m not clear on the reason, if any, why that particular song was chosen. As far as I can see the path taken by the king doesn’t form the shape of anything. So 4.00 stars, but pending upward revision if people in comments can point out something or things I’ve missed.
