James travelled to his native United Kingdom record a special edition of The Late Late Show with James Corden earlier this month - and roped in the legendary Beatles musician to help him out.

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.

The trip ended with a stop at a local pub, where they surprised patrons with a performance they'll never forget.

Watch Paul's entire Carpool Karaoke segment below! "Yeah, I need somebody, not just anybody, please, please help me". Crowds gathered wherever they went, shaking hands, asking for autographs and often overcome with emotion at seeing McCartney in person.

After getting back in the vehicle, Corden says Sir Paul's music is "so full of positivity and joy", and "more relevant now today than it's maybe ever been". "I can remember my granddad, who's a musician, and my dad sitting me down and saying, "We're going to play you the best song you've ever heard".

Despite taking a ride with some of the biggest musical names on the planet including Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran, McCartney is perhaps Corden's biggest coup to date.

A visit to the famous Penny Lane was followed by a call at the singer's childhood home before the visit culminated in an emotional singalong at a city centre pub. "We expected it to last 10 years but it keeps going on and on and on and it keeps being relevant".

The rocker then explained to James how his mother used to give early Beatles admirers cups of tea, before greeting modern day fans outside his home.

McCartney made the emotional moment even more poignant when he reassuringly told Corden, "He is".
