May 2013 Top 20: Part 2

Welcome back to this month's Top 20! As I said in Part 1, it's been incredibly hard to narrow it down, and I would say the no.s 1 and 2 are both equally worthy of the top spot! 
If you can only watch one video though I would recommend HAIM as they are definitely my favourite band of the year so far and I love their video for 'Forever' - it has such a modern yet nostalgic feel to it and the dynamic between the 3 sisters is excellent! Enjoy...

Daft Punk - Get Lucky

I swear this song is getting catchier and catchier! I love the groove of this song and it has a great old-school vibe that you just can't help but nod your head along to. It may be pretty different to Daft Punk's older stuff but it still has the same effect of getting firmly stuck in your head!
