May Music Picks

Music is a soul force…and in the Consuela office there is no shortage of iPod’s jamming to energize ourselves throughout the day. We figured we’d share with you some of the songs that are moving us on the inside and outside. Enjoy some of our current “favies” and why we love them!

Conni’s Picks.

Jump On My Shoulders – AWOLNation 
I get addicted to songs and play them over and over and I think this one will always be a favie.  It’s good to run to, great in the car just jamming, and has a great message.

Something Kinda Ooooh – Girls Aloud
In the spring, I love light-hearted dance songs that make me want to shake my groove thing!  This song makes me visualize neon off-the-shoulder sweatshirts, ice cream cones, and convertibles!

Maggie’s Picks.

Not Over You – Gavin DeGraw
I dig the bluesy rock roots in his voice and the raw and real words about aching for someone.

Windows are Rolled Down – Amos Lee
This song makes me literally roll down my windows and just breathe in Life, Spirit, and Possibility.  I can’t get enough of it!  Just lifts my entire being.

Alyssa’s Picks.

You are the Best Thing – Ray LaMontagne  
I am a newlywed and this is my wedding song.  Quite simply, it lifts my heart!

Guns & Horses – Ellie Goulding
I’m loving the whole Lights album; it is the perfect blend of relaxing and upbeat at the same time!

Karen’s Picks.

The Weary Kind – Ryan Bingham
I love his gravelly voice and descriptive songwriting in this beautiful academy award-winning song.

I Don’t Wanna Grow Up – Hayes Carll
Originally written by Tom Waits, Hayes brings humor and an interesting timing and twang to his music.

Rianna’s Picks.

1940 – The Submarines
Sweet voice, sick beat, makes you move!

Country – Empire of the Sun
Slow build, chill bumps, and all around beautiful song like moving through a dream.

Brittani’s Picks.

Hold Tight – Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich
Down in Mexico –The Coasters
While I listen to everything, I love these songs that are used in the movie Deathproof which is one of my favies! It is such a hardcore power chick flick movie. If you haven’t seen it, you should!

Clay’s Picks.

* Due to the fact that the name on the cassette tape in Clay Reed’s truck was rubbed off, we could not ID his favorite picks. We’ll do our best to acquire a walkman device and let you know what the mystery tape is!
