I’m hoping you’ll have heard of the song “Hound Dog”, It was originally recorded by “Big Mama Thorton” but now most people recognise this version by Elvis..

But have you heard also of Rufus Thomas’ record “Bear Cat” ?

Between the 1930s and 1950s a new concept in the world of blues and r and b music became popular, the response song was born (and bear cat was the response to hound dog) They were usually female artists’ responses to a song by a male artist. If old music ain’t your thing then Katy Perry’s “California Girls” was a response song to Jay Z’s “Empire State of Mind”

Anyhow, I only came across all this earlier this year whilst on a trip to Sun Studios, Memphis, where so much magic was created. It got me thinking of the floral equivalent, for a little while now floral blogs have been full of women wearing hair circlets, then the menfolk started getting flowered up, beards to be precise..I think this one kicked it off (image:pinterest)

flower beard

Then all the hipster menfolk got going (just google flower beard.)

And whilst women in circlets are looking all pretty and girly the men just get to look hipster cool, there’s got to be some imbalance there. Stuff that inequality!! So here you have it hipster menfolk, women can do the floral beard too y’know, if i ever have the misfortune of growing a beard in my post menopause days when hormones have got in the way, this is how i’m going to style it, in. your. face hipster men,here’s a slice of my floral response images, enjoy…
