Word Sudoku (Code-Doku)
Beatles Songs

To solve these puzzles, place each of the characters exactly once in each row, column and 3×3 box. When you have completed a puzzle, the shaded squares will spell the title of a Beatles song read left to right, then top to bottom. An asterisk (*) may represent a number, punctuation mark or other special character, but will not represent one of the other letters used in that puzzle.

You will not be able to complete these puzzles using the sudoku rules alone. You will have to make choices that reveal the song title.
