All the year-end “Most popular” Web lists are coming out – from the search engines especially.

Dogpile, which searches Google, Yahoo, MSN and AskJeeves, is no exception, noting that “music lyrics” was the #1 most searched term in 2005. Right behind that, the unfortunately ubiquitous Paris Hilton.

Here’s the remainder of the Top 5.

#3 Google

#4 eBay

#5 Yahoo

Well, that was boring. Who goes to Dogpile and types in “Google” as a search term? Yikes. Here’s AOL’s Top 5 Most Searched:

#1 Lottery

#2 Horoscopes

#3 Tattoos

#4 Lyrics

#5 Ringtones
