Why is part of Michelle in French?
"Michelle" was a tune that I'd written in Chet Atkins' finger-picking style. There is a song he did called "Trambone" with a repetitive top line, and he played a bass line while playing a melody. I wanted to write something with a melody and a bass line in it ... an instrumental in C.Creating beautiful melodies came naturally to Paul McCartney. He had to work harder, to find the words that go together well. Especially in a language he did not speak.
