The video also saw the legend revisit his childhood home on 20 Fortlin Road, where he told the fantastic story of how he and John Lennon wrote She Loves You and played it for his father.

Lucky for us, the Late Late Show host apparently has the legend Paul McCartney on speed dial. Crowds gathered wherever they went, shaking hands, asking for autographs and often overcome with emotion at seeing McCartney in person. "Just let it be, '" McCartney said.

He played A Hard Day's Night, Love Me Do, Back In The USSR and Hey Jude as members of the audience cried. This week, however, the British comedian is airing his show from London, and he recruited a very special passenger for what Today calls the "most emotional yet" of all singalong sessions.

Explaining why the story made him so emotional, Corden said: "I can remember my grandad, who was a musician, and my dad, sitting me down and saying, "we're going to play you the best song you've ever heard".

The pair ends up at a pub, where Corden serves as bartender and encourages patrons to use the jukebox.

"That's been one of the odd things", McCartney, around the five-minute mark in the video up top, told Corden of the lasting impact of the Beatles' message.
