January Playlist | 2017

© Heathen Harnow

Soo, January has officially lasted a whole year. And this is a fact, everyone I've talked to has the same opinion. And what sucks the most is that everyone's January is terrible, just like mine. I think January's goal this month was to teach me a lesson, and all I'm going to say is - lesson learned. I can't wait to get my life back on track in February, and that includes my blog. Expect A LOT more posts from me, yay!

Starting this playlist off with a shout out to NoonPacific.com , I loooove that site so much! Well, I first had the app, but you need Internet for it, so when I found out that they have a website version of it I was so excited! For those of you who are first hearing of this, it's a music website that publishes a new playlist of 10 songs each Monday at Noon (Pacific standard time), and 9/10 of the songs on there are sure to be ones that you've never heard of before. So, whenever I'm doing something on my laptop, I choose a random playlist from the already published ones, put my headphones in and chill. (Also,the whole aesthetic of the website is *to die for*) That is how I found two amazing songs that stood out to me, Saved by Khalid and Beretta by Matt Black.
Saved has a chilled, groovy vibe that works perfectly for background noise. The melancholic voice of Khalid makes this song a smooth listen, one that will make you put this song on repeat.
Beretta has more of an R&B sound, but still has the same smoothness as Saved. Definitely on the more moody side, Beretta's electronic sounds mixed with the R&B make this song even more amazing.

Everything by SMNM kept on automatically playing every time I'd listen to Beretta, and I think that was a sign that I needed to put this song on the playlist. SMNM or See Me No More is a Norwegian singer/songwriter (I just learned this information, I swear all the good things come from Norway!), and he has only a few singles out. I am definitely expecting a lot from this artist!

Up next we have one of the coolest EDM trap songs that I've heard in a while. Mickey Valen's Meet Me feat. Noe has been on repeat for the past week, I just love the mix of the beat with Noe's voice. That beat drop though, so frickin cool!

I can't put up a playlist and not include Ed Sheeran's new song Shape of You. I don't need to explain why I love this song, as I'm sure you all love it too.

Okay, so when I say that I listen to everything I literally mean everything. That is why I have Die Antwoord and Ed Sheeran on the same playlist haha. To be honest, Die Antwoord is a bit too much for me, but Baby's On Fire has been stuck in my head since December (when it was in the background of a scene in SKAM). The song is... interesting, to say the least. But, the more I listen to it, the more I'm having a dance party in my room.

Talking about SKAM, this next remix of a song that was on a previous playlist had me screaming at the screen when a scene with it came up. Astrid S (another Norwegian bae) and her song 2 AM had a "makeover" with the Matoma Remix. You should definitely listen to this one, it's not what you'd expect.

Last on the list is Insecure by Shane. Now, the point to which I found this song is unknown to me, from one Instagram account to another I stumbled upon this little gem. So, at the beginning I was really confused by the video (no seriously, SO CONFUSED), but then the more I listened to the song I actually started to like it and when it was over I found myself singing the chorus, just from that first listen. I think that the weirdness of the video/the singer (who's hella cute btw) made me love this song. I would really want to know what was the idea behind the video, why a church? Why those dance moves? I guess some questions will never be answered.

I've made a new playlist on Youtube just for 2017, you can check it out HERE. Hope you'll enjoy my picks for this month! See you in February!


  1. love it :D



  2. WOW!!!
    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experience and i need to share this great testimony.
    About how i get my ex back after a breakup.
    I never believed it, because i never heard nor learn anything about it before.
    Hey guys my wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe.
