Nothing But A Hound Dog

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I had no idea that before Elvis took on the song as his own “Hound Dog” was actually recorded by singer/songwriter Willie Mae ‘Big Mama’ Thornton. Her original version was recorded in 1952. I love learning things about musical history. Though it does make me a little sad when artist like this don’t get credit because their version isn’t the “popular” version. Write a scene where your character gets overlooked for an accomplishment only to have someone else do the same thing and receive praise. Why was your character ignored while this other person gets attention? How is their work different? How are they different?

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
