Who would have thought that singing in the car would become one of the most popular concepts on the internet? I know I didn’t, but James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke has become a phenomenal success – but now it’s gone bigger! Paul McCartney’s Carpool Karaoke episode is breaking the internet.
In a London edition of The Late Late Show, James Corden enlisted the help of the legendary Beatles crooner, Paul McCartney. As usual, the video starts with James on the hunt for a carpool companion to accompany him on his drive.
This week, James went to the very top to help him on an adventure in Liverpool. But who could he call? Who knows the streets of ‘Penny Lane’ better than anybody else? There’s only one famous Liverpudlian who can help… Sir Paul McCartney.
James starts off on the phone, before long, we realise he’s quoting the lyrics form a Beatles classic:
“I need somebody, not just anybody. Can you please, please help me,”

McCartney joined the late-night talk show host and the two seemed to get on like a house on fire. As always, they kicked everything off with a singalong. Fittingly, the pair sang the Beatles’ hit “Drive My Car“.
Throughout the video, McCartney chronicles the start of his career, revealing that he wrote his first song at the age of just 14! He then began to sing a little bit and it actually sounds pretty good.
“Your music is so full of positivity and joy and a message of love and togetherness, I feel like it’s more relevant now today maybe than it’s ever been,”
