Problem: Halloween Town/​Thanksgiving Town

The jukebox buttons at the bottom play snippets of popular songs, which have been alphabetized by song title:

  1. “1-2-3,” Gloria Estefan
  2. “Azure Te,” Louis Jordan
  3. “Bat Out of Hell,” Meat Loaf (written by Jim Steinman)
  4. “Cheeseburger in Paradise,” Jimmy Buffett
  5. “Chiquitita,” ABBA
  6. “C’mon Everybody,” Elvis Presley
  7. “Headlong,” Queen
  8. “Holiday,” Green Day
  9. “Hound Dog,” Elvis Presley
  10. “I See Your Smile,” Gloria Estefan
  11. “I Want It All,” Queen
  12. “Just The Way You Are,” Billy Joel
  13. “Last Night on Earth,” Green Day
  14. “Lay All Your Love On Me,” ABBA
  15. “The Longest Time,” Billy Joel
  16. “Not Allowed To Love,” Jim Steinman
  17. “A Pirate Looks At Forty,” Jimmy Buffett
  18. “Safe Sane and Single,” Louis Jordan
  19. “So Far Away,” Carole King
  20. “You’ve Got a Friend,” Carole King

Eagle-eyed solvers will note that these songs can be grouped into pairs by a common artist. Those common artists match the artists in the jukebox listing via a letter bank; “Green Day” has become “Angry Ed,” and Elvis Presley is now “Liver Spy.”

Each of the artists has also had a “jukebox musical” created around their work, and the songs feature in the musical. The song titles in the jukebox listing describe the action that is happening onstage at that point in the show.

By finding the musical’s original cast recording (as suggested by the phrase “original music”) and using the track number matching the song as an index into the show title, solvers uncover the phrase MAKO RUTLEDGE NICKNAME, which Overwatch players may recognize as ROADHOG.
