Program Notes

Michelle is a love ballad by the Beatles, composed principally by Paul McCartney, with the middle eight co-written with John Lennon. It is featured on their Rubber Soul album, released in December 1965. The song is unusual among Beatles recordings in that some of its lead vocals are in French, though Paperback Writer contains the backing vocals "Frère Jacques". Michelle won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year in 1967 and has since become one of the best known and often recorded of all Beatles songs.
