Many a legend has shared a front seat with talk show host James Corden, but perhaps one of the biggest was featured in the Thursday (June 21) episode of the “Late, Late Show Carpool Karaoke” in the form of the incomparable former Beatle Paul McCartney. On the fun-filled ride, the two sang everything from classics such as “Blackbird” and “Drive My Car” to the 76-year old’s new song “Come On to Me.” Fans have long loved the “Carpool Karaoke” series, as Corden has made the franchise quite famous thanks to front seat duet partners such as Miley Cyrus, Kelly Clarkson and Stevie Wonder.
But this one just felt different and a tad more special.
During the ride through Liverpool, McCartney also took Corden on a history lesson of sorts, making stops everywhere from the legendary Penny Lane to the house where he lived as a teenager, the same place where he also wrote many a song alongside former Beatle John Lennon.
At the end of this historic ride, the two ended up in a pub where McCartney tore into songs like “Hard Day’s Night,” “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da,” “Love Me Do,” “Back in the USSR” and “Hey Jude.”
“I think this is an afternoon not one of us will ever forget,” concluded Corden.
And we would have to agree.
