Default Malibu & 1979 similarities

They have identical beat and chords.

Malibu is totally a Corgie song, amirite?

Also, The Boy has the same fucking drum beat.

Feel like they must've riffed on 1979 a lot.

*tumbleweed*

Yeah.

Billy said on Howard Stern's E! show around that time that Courtney would present him with a lot of "raw data" (those were his words). So it's safe to assume that she had at least the basic structure/chord progression of the song written by the time Billy got involved.

Love wrote all of Hole's lyrics (at least on Celebrity Skin). That might explain why lyric to "Malibu" makes sense. If Billy had written it it would've probably just been his usual gibberish... even in that era.

I bet Corgan wrote everything but the lyrics

Default Malibu

"It was a long time ago that I helped write this song. Now, how much of this song I wrote .... [spreads out hands and smiles at Jeff] .... It was a collaboration! [Laughs]."

Billy on March 23, 2016 before Malibu

He probably wrote most of the lyrics and all of the music.

I wouldn't be so sure of that



You tear it all away
And feed me nothing
And I feel so lost
You give me nothing

I'm dying, I'm dying, please
I'm dying, I'm dying, please
I'm dying, bring it back to me
I'm dying, please

You steal my gravity
For love I'll always beg
Life in captivity
You come to bury me

I'm dying, I'm dying, please
I'm dying, I'm dying, please
I'm dying, bring it back to me
I'm dying, please

You make it go away
And now I understand
It's part of everything
In the rain

I'm dying, I'm dying, please
Make it all go away

I'm dying, I'm dying, please
I'm dying, I'm dying, please
I'm dying, I'm dying, please
I'm dying, I'm dying, please

Make it all go away
I'm dying, I'm dying, please
Tear my heart in two
I'm dying, bring it back to me
In my history
I'm dying, bring it home to me

So because the lyric changed from the demo to the released version that means Billy wrote them? Lyrics change all the time.

Courtney was pretty vocal about having written all of the lyrics on Celebrity Skin. That was the reason she claimed as to not have performed guitar on the album, to focus on the lyrics.
