While in Liverpool, McCartney took a trip down Penny Lane and showed Corden local landmarks including the church where he was a choir boy and his old barbershop.

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".

"That's one of the strangest things, is we expected it to last 10 years, but it keeps going on and on and on", McCartney said of The Beatles' enduring fame and adoration.

'I can remember my grandad who is a musician, and my dad sitting me down and saying, "we're going to play you the best songs you've ever heard" and then playing me that [Let It Be]. "She gave me the positive word". But then, out of nowhere, Taylor Swift stood up and said: "I'll do a song!" "How that can do that to you", replied McCartney. "Just let it be", he said she told him in the dream - which of course then inspired the famous song.

"I've never been in since I lived there", Sir Paul says. They cycled through "A Hard Day's Night", "Love Me Do" and "Back the USSR", as onlookers filled the pub.

After beginning with "Drive My Car", the pair are seen taking a ride down Penny Lane, where it's only right that they sing the song in question.

'I think if my grandad was here now he'd get an absolute kick out of this'.

Shocking the homeowner with an impromptu visit, McCartney shows Corden around the house.

As their journey continued, McCartney shared the story behind the making of that tune and others, like the early hit "She Loves You"; gave Corden a tour of the home where he wrote numerous early Beatles tunes with John Lennon; and eventually surprised some unsuspecting pub customers with a live concert and emotional rendition of "Hey Jude".
