"Pills And Soap" (Home-Recording)

This is one from a year and a half ago. It started as a cheesy instrumental on the keyboard, which then, I felt, needed a bit more.
By mere chance, the lyrics of the Elvis Costello song `Pills And Soap`were lying nearby, so I started to half-rap, half-sing them on top of the finished instrumental. Funnily enough they fitted ...

So, I present the world with the first Costello-Ymaginatif original!!

PS (Update) funny how Elvis Costello musc have picked up this idea, and four years later used exactly the same process to rcord his collaboration with The Roots: 'Wise Up Ghost'
