(A to Z is proud to introduce another new weekly feature: Mellow Mondays. It's the start of the work week, and you're likely tired, hungover and grouchy that you're stuck at work. So to ease your transition back into the daily grind, every week we'll troll YouTube for the smoothest, easiest jams. Guilty pleasures? Yacht rock gems? Dentist office fodder? Requests only Delilah would love? Nothing is sacred or too mellow for this column.)
