It had been a magical mystery tour as Paul McCartney led James Corden through his hometown of Liverpool during a "Carpool Karaoke " segment on CBS' "The Late Late Show".

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.

Sir Paul McCartney climbed in next to Corden, revealed tidbits about himself and the Beatles, and crooned show-themed songs such as "Penny Lane" (the actual road they were driving on) and "Drive My Car", per USA Today.

Macca and James also treated fans to an emotional version of his Let It Be anthem, which stemmed from his late mother reassuring him in a dream.

Senate votes to legalize pot
Once sales get up and running, Canada will become the first G7 industrialised country to have a legal nationwide cannabis market. While the bill is not yet in effect in Canada , marijuana is expected to be legal in Canada by August or September.

In the vehicle, they chatted a bit about the first song McCartney ever wrote. "And I felt so sort of great and boy - it's going to be great, she gave me the positive words". But McCartney was writing music long before The Beatles, telling Corden he was just 14 years old when he wrote his first song.

"If my granddad was here right now, he'd get an absolute kick out of this", Corden tells McCartney, reminiscing on hearing the song back when he was young. Folks like Adele or even the Foo Fighters offer some interesting insight into their careers and lives, but it's this Paul McCartney installment that just may be the best Carpool Karaoke to date.

Next up on the tour was a trip to 20 Forthlin Road where McCartney and John Lennon wrote numerous songs that would go on to reach people all around the globe. He sings some of his old hits before inviting Corden onstage for "Hey Jude". Check your local listings for more information.
