Paul McCartney stuns fans in emotional edition of Carpool Karaoke

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.

In the 23-minute video posted on Thursday, we see McCartney singing some of his most famous Beatles songs like Penny Lane, Drive My Car, Let It Be and Blackbird.

McCartney told how a dream, in which his mother told him to "let it be", inspired the song of the same name.

Later, McCartney and his band surprised a small group of locals at Liverpool's Philharmonic Pub with a 13-song set that included "A Hard Day's Night", "Back in the U.S.S.R" and his new single, "Come On To Me". "Can you please, please help me" before joining Paul in a rendition of Drive My Car. The Beatles leader might have a stronger connection with Corden than any other late night host because they're both British, and Corden was moved so much by something McCartney said that he was overcome with emotion.

As he led Corden through the home (even sitting down at the piano to sing "When I'm 64"), he told Corden how his father had critiqued "She Loves You", suggesting they replace the "yeah, yeah, yeahs" with "yes, yes, yes". "I'll never ever forget it. Take a breath and jump in", Corden tweeted on Thurs.

As they chat, Sir Paul says he wrote Let It Be after his late mum spoke the words to him in a dream.

During the film, the pair also visit one of Sir Paul's childhood homes, go to Penny Lane, and pop into a pub for an impromptu performance. "And I remember them playing that".

The rocker demonstrated how his music sounded better in the toilet - "the acoustic chamber" - while also showing where he and bandmate John Lennon would write songs. "My dad would be in there (the next room) watching telly, we'd be in here, and we'd just written She Loves You, which was a big Beatles hit".
