February Playlist | 2017


Hello!
I know, it's too soon for a playlist Elena! But, I have another post planned for next Monday, so I wanted to fill this week's spot with something, so a playlist was the reasonable answer! Guys, this month has whizzed away and I feel like I spent it either laying in bed or running around like a headless chicken - there was no in between! That's why the songs I gravitated towards this month were chill songs that put my mind on "Airplane mode", if you know what I mean.

Let It Happen by Tame Impala has been on repeat on and off for about two months now, so I thought it was about time to include it in a playlist for those of you who haven't heard this song before. The catchy chorus will be stuck in your head from the very first listen, so you're welcome for that.

Brand New Moves is probably the only song here that would make you stand up and dance, so I was conflicted on whether to mess up my perfect chill pill playlist. But, I want to be honest, and February wouldn't have been what it was without this song. I featured Hey Violet's other song (Guys My Age) a few playlists ago, so this song was like a little reminder that they are an amazing band!

From one end of the spectrum to another, I present to you this month's obsession - Aventine by Agnes Obel. Actually, Agnes Obel in general is an obsession, how have I missed her music?! The whole album called Aventine is a masterpiece, but the song of the same name and Dorian are my two favorites. Obel's sound is giving me Daughter vibes, but instead of guitar we have haunting cello and piano. Her music is an actual experience, and I've been watching live performances of these songs in awe. When I was listening to Aventine for the first time the animated movie Coraline popped into my head, and this song would have been a perfect fit for it. Definitely check them out!

My other obsession has been Khalid, can I just say how fricking amazing his songs are! Totally different vibe from Agnes Obel, but still in that "chill" category. If Obel's music makes you feel feel a bit crept out, Khalid's will make you miss the boyfriend you've never had. Two songs caught my attention after last months Saved, and those are Shot Down and Location. Shot Down is slower and more of a ballad, while Location is the initial song that made people take notice of Khalid. Location is like an ode to the Millennial love, where relationships are ruled by sending locations and subtweets. Genius lyrics if you ask me.

And last but not least, If You Let Me by Sinead Harnett ft. GRADES. This song was one of those "love at first listen" types, and I've had it on repeat for a week straight. I was captivated by the style of the song, and it reminded me of another artist but I couldn't quite put my finger on it. And when I googled GRADES (he's a music producer) I found out that he made some of my fave songs by NAO. And that's when it all made sense, this guy was producing the kind of songs that intrigue me the most.

Hope you'll enjoy my picks for this"chill vibes" playlist, click HERE for the whole playlist on YT.
Until next week!

  1. 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.
