The letters in these words are playing musical chairs; in each round, one letter gets dropped and the rest get rearranged. Write the clued 6-letter words in column A. Then drop one letter from each word and rearrange the rest to get a 5-letter word that goes in column B. Drop one more letter and rearrange what's left to get a 4-letter word to write in column C. The letters thus dropped, reading down the leftmost column and then the rightmost column, will spell a song title. The words in column C are clued in order, but you must determine where the words go in the other columns.
