Robinson sounds a bit like Caruso (6)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'caruso' is the definition.
Both the definition and answer are singular nouns.
Maybe there's a link between them I don't understand?

'robinson sounds a bit' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'bit' could be 'o' (resembles 0, a binary digit or bit) and 'o' is found in the answer.
The remaining letters 'cruse' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't see.
This explanation may well be incorrect...

'like' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?
