For the latest episode of Carpool Karaoke, James Corden asked for “not just anybody” and he got the least of an anybody ever could be. He got a knight for the latest car ride. It is none other than Sir James Paul McCartney from the Beatles.
The Late Late Show with James Corden has been having this Carpool Karaoke segment for 44 episodes and the 45th was ever so ecstatic. The Beatles guitarist and later collaborator with John Lenon, joined Corden for a full car ride in Paul’s hometown-Liverpool, England.
Sir Paul McCartney and James Corden sprung right into the singing, and there was a lot of it. Sir McCartney, despite being 76 years old, was as active as Corden and sang his heart out.
One of the more iconic scenes was when the duo sang “Penny Lane” at the actual ‘Penny Lane’ street in Liverpool. McCartney made the host Corden cry when he explained that the inspiration behind the track “Let it Be” was drawn out of a dream of his late mother.
“I had a dream in the ’60s where my mum, who had died, came to me in the dream and was reassuring me saying, ‘It’s going to be okay. Just let it be.”
The duo even made a pitstop at McCartney’s childhood home, now turned into a national museum. There he played an awestruck rendition of “When I’m Sixty-Four” on the piano.
Other massive hits such as “Blackbird” and “Drive My Car” were among the songs played in the Carpool Karaoke ride.
The duo performed a duet of “Hey Jude” at a local pub to the much excitement of the crowd.
