Paul McCartney's Carpool Karaoke Leaves James Corden In Tears

Paul McCartney's Carpool Karaoke Leaves James Corden In Tears

Paul McCartney took the driver's seat - and the passenger seat - in the latest installment of "Carpool Karaoke", which aired as part of "The Late Late Show with James Corden", which is airing this week from London.

While the pair drove through the streets of McCartney's hometown of Liverpool, they belted out beloved Beatles songs before the segment got unprecedentedly deep and emotional. "I'll never ever forget it". The former Beatle also explained how "Let It Be" came from a dream he had in the '60s in which his deceased mother reassured him that "It's going to be okay". So I woke up and was, 'What was that?

McCartney gave Corden an intimate tour of Liverpool, a.k.a. the birthplace of the Beatles, and along the way, they cruised through the Fab Four's greatest hits, including "Drive My Car", "Blackbird", and "When I'm 64". "Couldn't you sing she loves you yes, yes, yes?' And we were like, no", said McCartney.

Afterward, Corden was wiping tears from his eyes. "I didn't feel it coming".

Corden replied, "That's the most lovely story I've ever heard".

A jolly good sport who genuinely looks like he had the best time, McCartney runs through some of his most iconic numbers, from the thematically necessary "Drive My Car", to "Penny Lane", and the first song he ever wrote at 14.

They then leave the vehicle to visit the barber's shop mentioned in the song - leaving the owner in sheer disbelief. "I remember me and my mom and dad".

'I think if my grandad was here now he'd get an absolute kick out of this'. "We're going to give the locals the surprise of their life", teased Corden. McCartney shared that the two went into the next room to play the song for McCartney's father.

After unsuspectingly picking a Beatles song and returning to her table, the bargoer - and everyone else in the place - was shocked when large heavy curtains around the pub's stage suddenly opened revaling McCartney and a full band, who broke out in a performance of "A Hard Day's Night".
