Soulja Boy, Tony Soprano, and Miss South Carolina all rated tops among the topics people sought out through Truveo’s video search.

As the year draws to a close, lists become more and more of a part of the media routine, as both writers and readers have seen these days. Who are we to say no to the glorious custom of ‘top something’ lists?

Online video has increased in interest through 2007 to the point where people expect to find it on the websites they visit. Truveo broke down the top searches they have seen into top viral videos, TV moments, and music videos.

She may not have won Miss Teen USA, but Lauren Caitlin Upton may as well have been crowned Miss Teen YouTube after Miss Teen South Carolina’s now-famous flubbed answer to a geography question became the top viral video Truveo saw this year.

David Chase’s choice of a close to the HBO series “The Sopranos” had people frantically reaching for their remotes when the screen turned black. When it became obvious that the series had ended on that note, the querying began in earnest for what became the most searched TV moment.

In the music scene, Truveo said everybody wanted to “Crank Dat.” Even though it seems like Rhianna’s “Umbrella” has been everywhere, her video placed second in searches to Soulja Boy’s.
