'famous enough' is the definition.
Both the answer and definition are adjectives. Perhaps they are linked in a way I don't understand?

'deserve being set to music?' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'being' could be 'worthy' (worthy is a kind of being) and 'worthy' is found in the answer.
'music?' could be 'note' (synonyms) and 'note' is present in the answer.
This accounts for all the letters.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

'to' acts as a link.
