Paul McCartney's Carpool Karaoke Is a Drive Down Memory Lane

Paul McCartney's Carpool Karaoke Is a Drive Down Memory Lane

"So I wrote the song 'Let it Be, ' [and it was] about positivity", he added.

Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters guested on The Late Late Show, and during the interview segment, James Corden asked Grohl about his relationship to Paul McCartney.

Corden, who reckons it is "quite possibly the best Carpool Karaoke we've done so far", says it is something he will "never ever forget". Then the two motorists launched into the song.

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".

McCartney invited Corden onstage for the final song "Hey, Jude" - which left all in attendance a bit overcome as they joined in a singalong on the final chorus.

"Hi, I'm Paul McCartney", he said (needlessly) introducing himself to the homeowner.

Corden labelled it "the most lovely story" he has ever heard, before the pair perform a version of it.

The country's state-run media characterized the vaguely worded agreement with Trump as setting in motion a "step-by-step" process. North Korean officials have indicated in the past that they have the remains of as many as 200 US troops, the Pentagon said.

During a delightful segment in McCartney's Liverpool home that he lived in during his teenage years, he shared stories of writing "She Loves You" with John Lennon there and performing it for his father who, McCartney claims, said that it should have used the more formal "Yes, yes, yes" instead of the now-legendary "Yeah, yeah, yeah".

"Oh man, it got me emotional there", Corden said.

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.

As Corden brings The Late Late Show to United Kingdom shores, the presenter and actor enlisted the nation's ultimate music export Paul McCartney for a sing-along in the passenger seat.

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.
