  • Difficulty: Quite Easy
A song that uses the rhythm of the words (names of common drugs) to create texture… along with a few clashy harmonies, of course!

Although there are some contrasting rhythms and clashing harmonies, each part in this song is quite short and easy to learn. The song can also be taught as 2 separate sections, so I’ve categorised it as: Quite Easy.

Increasingly my friends and I talk about our ailments and I’m learning to love the names of the medications we use! This song celebrates those, often multi-syllabled, names. In the first section, it’s all about rhythm, with each Voice Part using different words to create different rhythms from the others. In the second section, all the parts have the same words and rhythm, and the emphasis is on clashy harmonies.
