More Googlism Poetry

Back in January, I plugged the names of Houston musicians into the endlessly amusing but mostly pointless site Googlism and generated a few poems composed entirely of the collective conventional wisdom of the web. (Read the results here.)

This time, it's the turn of Kenny Rogers, King's X and Mickey Gilley....


Kenny Rogers is not only a great singer Kenny Rogers is an American icon Kenny Rogers is a legend in country music Kenny Rogers is a genius Kenny Rogers is such a super performer

Kenny Rogers is a damn good signer and needs to be reviewed by a person that knows and loves music not by some idiot like you

Kenny Rogers is a warm and caring man and friend who gave me instant credibility as a songwriter… Kenny Rogers is one sexy fella Kenny Rogers is trying to parlay a hit song and its eponymous persona into a winner in the US $550 billion Kenny Rogers is fabulously wealthy now Kenny Rogers is still working hard to continue that

Kenny Rogers is a modern renaissance man Kenny Rogers is going to keep the ball on the ground Kenny Rogers is expected to decide today whether he will approve a trade to the Reds Kenny Rogers is delightful in this charming little film Kenny Rogers is down enough with hip hop to lend his voice to a cut Kenny Rogers is a stock car racer who "adopts" kids that he caught stripping his car

Kenny Rogers is made possible in part thanks to the generous donations of the IU Auditorium’s season sponsors


Mickey Gilley is wowing audiences with his honky Mickey Gilley is still wowing audiences with his honky Mickey Gilley is planning a sequel to his honky

Mickey Gilley is a homo Mickey Gilley is being sued for sexual harassment by a woman whose custodial service used to clean his theater in Branson Mickey Gilley is expected to attend that one

Mickey Gilley is one of country music’s perennial favorites Mickey Gilley is the shining light of Branson Mickey Gilley is a true legend and will take his place amongst the stars such as Jerry Lee Lewis and other great country music stars Mickey Gilley is the least we can do in exchange for stealing away their land


King’s X is a power trio from Katy King’s X is a band of considerable paradox in both music and message King’s X is a particularly interesting metal band King’s X is not a Christian band

King’s X is a lot like Rush King’s X is some sort of a Rush clone King’s X is a rather heavy band but I wouldn't like to cal it heavy metal or hard rock King’s X is not prog King’s X is a band of interest to proggers King’s X is best described as soul metal King’s X is an analgesic creme in a 4 ounce jar King’s X is used by children King’s X is applied to the elbow King’s X is used only in times of accident or emergency King’s X is touring with legendary rocker ronnie james dio
