The whole point about the unclues acrosses is that they are unclued!

Start with the anagram at 19a which leads to a famous singer. Then enter one of his first and most famous songs in 2d, 28a, 3d. That should set you well on the way. The unclued acrosses are a sort of wordgame where you start with a word and change a letter at a time to finish up with another word. Both the first and last words can follow "New Year's".

A few more things:

22d the "treatment" is Electro Convulsive Therapy

23d is the name of a star

24d the definition is "no longer bright"; the "classes struggling" are D & E which go inside (to fuel) something that is interesting for only a short time
