NYT Crossword Puzzle 11-15-21 Complete (contains spoilers)

I pulled out 11D Outdoes in a back-and-forth: ONEUPS because I’ve been doing that against myself with my newest woodworking projects. They’re all cutting boards, but each is different and has its own story. I’ve written about the first already, and tomorrow I start the second series on a different style of cutting board. So check out the new post each Tuesday at 10am PT.

I don’t think there was a theme, but these are the longer answers.

20A 1986 #1 hit by Falco: ROCKMEAMADEUS.

31A Title lyric heard 41 times in a 1965 Beach Boys hit: HELPMERHONDA.

40A Red-haired toy craze of 1996: TICKLEMEELMO. This is still sold. Saw it at Target the other day.
51A Request from the voracious plant in “Little Shop of Horrors”: FEEDMESEYMOUR.

Finished this one in 6:12.
