When you find yourself feeling stuck and the days are seeming endless, music is always a great distraction.

So, next time your coworker wants to have another political debate or you start to get swept away in a wave of overwhelming negativity, put on your headphones and tune in to this throwback playlist. Before you know it, you’re back in ’99 and it’s Mambo No. 5 time…
