The theme for this week's episode of Alt.Latino is simple: When you're having one of those days, just pop this mixtape into your cassette boombox and groove your blues away.

For some, it's the seemingly unending winter. For others, it's a day that started with spilled coffee, a missed train, or someone else buying the last glazed doughnut. No worries: We've got carefree songs that are virtually guaranteed to put a smile on your face as you look to get your day back on track. Enjoy!
