Happy Friday! It’s dreary and rainy in New York City—I guess that’s what they mean by “April showers” (learning so much moving to New York!)—and I figured this would be a perfect song to kick off the Friday Genius Ten for the day. Good time for nostalgia, I guess. Leave yours in comments, or comments about anything you want. Open thread!
