Layla was about Mr. Clapton's mournful pining for Mr.George Harrison's wife ( later, he married her.. )

and Roxanne was about a french prostitute that Sting was 'inspired' by.

Michelle, by the Beatles was an instrumental piece, to which McCartney later slapped some lyrics together because he and Lennon used to ham French Bohemian accents and Lennon wanted to make it into a song.

They even got some French friends to help out with the French words.
