Paul McCartney drives down memory lane for 'Carpool Karaoke'

Paul Mc Cartney

Paul McCartney joined Corden for a very special installment of the segment, in which the two spent a day driving around Liverpool and exploring the city of McCartney's youth.

Corden chokes up as McCartney explains how a dream about his late mother led to the lyrics for "Let It Be". "She gets up and she starts playing this song and it sounds familiar and I'm kind of a little bit out of it and I'm looking at my wife like, 'I know this song, what is this song?' and she was playing the Foo Fighters song 'Best of You'".

Once back in the vehicle, McCartney opened up about the story behind one of the Beatle's greatest hits, "Let It Be". "And I felt so sort of great and boy - it's going to be great, she gave me the positive words".

Sir Paul sang several solo and Beatles classics including "Drive My Car", "Penny Lane", "Let It Be", "When I'm 64", and "Blackbird".

"And I think that just says it", McCartney said. Watch his memorable Liverpool tour with Corden above.

Next up on the tour was a trip to 20 Forthlin Road where McCartney and John Lennon wrote numerous songs that would go on to reach people all around the globe.

The pair ends up at a pub, where Corden serves as bartender and encourages patrons to use the jukebox.

As their journey continued, McCartney shared the story behind the making of that tune and others, like the early hit "She Loves You"; gave Corden a tour of the home where he wrote numerous early Beatles tunes with John Lennon; and eventually surprised some unsuspecting pub customers with a live concert and emotional rendition of "Hey Jude".

"The Late Late Show" returns to USA soil next week at it's regularly scheduled time (12:37 AM EST/11:37 PM C), only on CBS.
