Some of the most searched videos include music and entertainment. For instance, when a person loves a specific song or a melody from a movie or a theater show, or any other entertaining outlet it may not be accessible to them all the time on streaming platforms, or they may be looking for something a little different than when they originally watched. There are countless musicians on YouTube who share their versions of that song or melody and even teach others how to sing along with it.
