Have you ever played around with Googlism?
Here’s how the site, which is not affiliated with Google in any way, describes itself: “Googlism was created as a fun tool to see what Google ‘thinks’ of certain topics and people. Of course, the results are not really Google's opinion, they're yours, the web site owners of the world. Within the Google results are thousands of your thoughts and opinions about thousands of different topics, people, names, things and places, we simply search Google and let you know what website owners think about the name or topic you suggested.”
I decided to plug in the names of a few of the most prominent Houston musicians of the past few decades, and here’s what I got: a bunch of randomly generated lists of statements, that with only a little editing, could be transformed into Wesley Willis songs.
It’s much better than the Wesley Willis song generator at this, believe me.
Rock over H-Town, rock on Chicago!
