Beatle's Music |
"Michelle" is another Beatles song that brings up Sembawang, Singapore associations. It has a "classy feel" with the French
"Michelle ma belle, sont les mots qui vont trés bien ensemble, trés bien ensemble.
which was definitely an innovation for pop and indeed Beatles music of the period. I've often puzzled on what this song means at face value. Is it a about an English lad trying to chat up a French lass whereby neither are capable of communicating efficiently in the others language?
The version that I play can be found in Beatles Songs for the Recorder.
"Michelle" has been recorded by:
The King's Singers on "Beatles Connection" CD(s) & MP3 Album(s)
The Beatles on "The Beatles 1962-1966 (Red Album)"
Francis Colpron on "Beatles Baroque, Vol. 2"
Francis Colpron on "Music of the Beatles"
