Stranger Things, Beyoncé, and Pokémon Go are among the most popular entertainment sensations of 2016, according to Google’s roundup of the year’s most frequent searches.

Coming in second on the list of most-searched topics is Prince, the legendary musician whose death helped propel “Purple Rain” to the top of the song search list, just behind Beyoncé’s “Formation.”

Americans were also engrossed by the late David Bowie, Suicide Squad, Brad Pitt, and Making a Murderer subject Steven Avery.
