I just received this message via the site's contact form. I'll summon Yoko with the Yokophone right away to check the answers.

To whom it may concern.

I would be grateful if you could forward this message to YOKO ONO.

Words (and their use, intentional or unintentional) in the English language (or French, or Italian or etc) that may come across as offensive to Muslims may make countries a target for terrorism.

An example: the Beatles song 'Michelle ma belle' can easily be 'read' and interpreted by Arab speakers as: 'amazing vagina'. The word ?? ??? ???? (ma sha Allah, amazing) includes the name of Allah, which in the context it is found would be outrageous to religious Muslims, just as outrageous a Christian would find a swear word against Christ in an Arab song. The word ???? (mahbal) is 'vagina' in Arabic.

Coincidentally, and possibly not so, there are a couple of words in Arabic from which the name Beatles could have come from:

??? (ba ta l) meaning 'champion, hero', ???? (ba ta la) meaning 'heroine' and ????? (bi taa la) meaning 'unemployment'.

A couple of questions:

1) was there ever any intention by the Beatles to use these combination of words with their Arabic meaning?

2) were the Beatles aware of the fact that words used in their songs or even that the band name may may have come from Arabic and used as such to have fun?

3) were (are) the Beatles Jewish?

Some people decided to make an example of me, as an English Jew. (The one major fault is I'm not Jewish).

Yes, Paul wrote Michelle in Liverpool in the early 60s to impress girls at parties... and as part of a Jewish plot to outrage the Islamic world paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

It's amusing that they just assumed we would be able to contact Yoko immediately though yoko-ono_01

But what if Michelle 's "amazing vagina" was so offensive that it turned a country into a terrorism target? You wouldn't be laughing then, would you?

She didn't pick up the YokoPhono. I'm going to sit in my garden and imagine the clouds are a letter, and the wind a postal service. That should do it.

Why do they want Yoko's answers to the questions? I guess they are proponents of PID blue-meanie

I was going to ask a question about names and what can or cannot be used if Michelle is out but I won't as it may not go well. So many questions.

I've been starting to really dig this one, it's the only time The Beatles did a jazz song that doesn't sound like "granny shit music" (ie When I'm 64, Honey Pie ).

I also find it really fascinating is how it was recorded. First of all, they recorded the backing track in one take, which they rarely did. But what i find really fascinating is the instrumentation:

According to photographs taken during this session, it appears that the backing track was recorded with John (Handmade Classical), Paul (Epiphone Texan), and George (Framus Hootenanny) on guitar (with capo at 5th fret) and Ringo on drums. Then, John overdubbed another guitar part with his Gibson J-160E and Paul with his Epiphone Texan, both with a capo on the 5th fret. Then, George recorded ANOTHER guitar part with his Framus Hootenanny (although this time without a capo). Finally, Paul records his Rickenbacker bass with a capo on the 5th fret and George records his solo. While we can't be certain what guitar he used on the solo, George Martin did confirm that it was George playing the solo.

That's 7 guitar parts (not counting the bass) yet aside from the solo, the 6 acoustic parts sound essentially the same, suggesting that they played essentially the same exact part 6 times.

You Know My Name is extremely jazzy in progression, instrumentation and performance. I also love Honey Pie . Michelle is cool because it has this Parisian vibe that isn’t quite jazzy, but definitely outside the constraints of rock and pop

I have always loved "Michelle ", even before I was a Beatles fan, so it has a bit of sentimental value.

Also, Michelle is my mum's name, so there's that bit of positive connection that brings me closer to the song.

Exactly-- it's like a French yé-yé song (even though I think the composition of this song predated the yé-yé style?)
