Ok, the theme song was the best part of the Wonder Years. Also, it’s asking a very important question of all listeners. What would you do?? You don’t have to stand for terrible singing. But you might have to stand for great singing at the a capella events this week!! (Wow, that was pretty bad, just roll with it. While you’re at it, you can lean wit it rock wit it, too.)
