I'm actually quite surprised that Ice Cube's It Was a Good Day has not already graced these pages. You may not know it to look at me, but this is an old favorite of mine. While Cube and I may live very different lifestyles, I for example don't play bones and put girl's butts to sleep very often; I have had my grub on without pigging out and I've had my share of pretty good days — like just this last Tuesday when I spotted both Philip Seymour Hoffman and Jim Jarmusch in the same day.
