Paul McCartney Sings Carpool Karaoke With James Corden

The music legend then went on to demonstrate how he and John had played the track for his dad - but Paul's father was unimpressed as it sounded too American.

From Penny Lane to the singer's childhood apartment where Lennon and McCartney wrote some of their most iconic songs, the pair brought viewers on an enlightening and nostalgic journey through the band's iconic history - bringing excited shock and joy to the random people Corden and McCartney met throughout the excursion.

The segment started with Corden seated in his auto before making a phone call and channelling one of The Beatles' best-known hits. "Can you please, please help me" before joining Paul in a rendition of Drive My Car.

McCartney also revealed how he wrote his first song at the age of 14. They snapped a selfie in front of a barber shop and then McCartney autographed the Penny Lane wall.

He also tells the story about how his mom came to him in a dream after she died to say that things would be alright, and that's how the song Let It Be came about.

They sing the song and Corden can not contain his emotion.

When the 18-time Grammy victor explained to Corden that The Beatles' "Let It Be" was inspired by a dream he had about his mother, the late-night host started tearing up. "I feel like it's more relevant now today maybe than it's ever been".

Next they go to 20 Forthlin Road in Allerton in south Liverpool, where Sir Paul lived as a teenager.

He then took the comedian to Liverpool's famous Philharmonic Dining Rooms pub - where James worked behind the bar serving locals, while Paul performed a set including Love Me Do and Hey Jude. They cycled through "A Hard Day's Night", "Love Me Do" and "Back the USSR", as onlookers filled the pub.
