Singer and songwriter Paul McCartney joined James Corden on a memorable auto ride exploring the city of McCartney's youth - Liverpool, in a special episode of Carpool Karaoke.

They snapped a selfie in front of a barber shop and then McCartney autographed the Penny Lane wall.

"Here, this is where me and John used to come to rehearse or write", he explained.

The Late Late Show host was joined by the singer as they drove past famous Beatles landmarks.

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.

Corden responded, "That's the most attractive story I've ever heard", and then the two sang the song together. "We expected it to last 10 years, but it keeps going on, and on, and on", McCartney says, "and it keeps being relevant".




We never thought we'd get emotional watching an episode of "Carpool Karaoke", but here we are.

"I can remember my granddad, who's a musician, and my dad sitting me down and saying, "We're gonna play you the best song that you've ever heard" and I remember them playing me that", Corden explained.

McCartney simply replied, "He is", before the two sat a moment of silence.

"McCartney revealed: ". And he listened to the whole song, and he said: "It's very nice", he said.

The grand finale took place at the aforementioned pub, where James and Paul initially surprise an unsuspecting crowd.
