SONGVILLE SAYS (Great Quote #8) - Corgan

"Songwriting for me is literally like having five people living in the same body. One day I'm an insular child-like artist, just going by emotion, the next day I'm a crass technician. The person who writes the riffs argues with the person doing the vocals. But the different personalities can work together. Sometimes my heart says 'This song needs to move,' and the tactical part suggests, 'Try a key change.' It goes back and forth until some kind of graceful compromise is reached."
- Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins)
