"Another Rainy Day in New York City" is a song written by Robert Lamm for the group Chicago and recorded for their album Chicago X (1976). Described as "the only typical Chicago cut on the album[:] upbeat and light with good blending of lead vocal by [Peter] Cetera",[1] the track would be the album's lead single but was largely passed over for radio airplay in favor of the album cut "If You Leave Me Now".[2] Rush-released as a single, "If You Leave Me Now" debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 of 14 August 1976 at #60 - on its way to #1 - and immediately eclipsed "Another Rainy Day..." which on the same chart fell to #46 from its #32 peak. "Another Rainy Day..." would reach #2 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.[3]
