June: Top 20 (Part 2)

Welcome to part 2 of this month's Top 20! Read on to find out which song made my number one spot...
10. Katy Perry - Wide Awake
This song kind of caught me off guard and I fell for it instantly. The video is just so perfect for the song and symbolises brilliantly the feelings in the song and Perry's feelings post-Brand. I especially love the punching the prince charming in the face! Ultimately this is a beautiful, addictive song and deserves to climb high in the charts!
