Good Looks Countdown: 6 Days

De La Soul is Dead is probably my favorite De La Soul album…which is a hard one to pick cuz of my love for all things De La, as you well know. But “A Roller Skate Jam Named ‘Saturdays'” is easily one of my favorite De La songs. Good Looks is on a Wednesday but I have no qualms playing it for you hipsters on Hump Day.
