Watch his memorable Liverpool tour with Corden above.

As part of the video, the pair embarked on a journey around McCartney's hometown, visiting Penny Lane and his family home, which he saw for the first time in 50 years.

The segment started with Corden seated in his auto before making a phone call and channelling one of The Beatles' best-known hits. They also sang the music icon's new songs "Come on to Me" and "I Don't Know", which will be featured on his album Egypt Station (out September 7). "Can you please, please help me?"

Yes, he can drive his vehicle.

The two returned to The Beatles' superstar's hometown, Liverpool, for the almost 25-minute long video, driving around Paul's old stomping grounds to reminisce on making music and his humble beginnings.

Doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said Neymar left as a precaution after feeling soreness while jogging. He felt some pain and went to the physiotherapy, and tomorrow he will train normally.

Within seconds of the former Beatle arriving, the pair are driving through the streets of Liverpool singing Drive My Car.

During the drive, Corden told McCartney: "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".

Their conversation got emotional as McCartney recounted a dream he'd had where his mother reassured him everything was going to be OK. When they were done, Corden wiped tears from his eyes and told a story about how his father and grandfather sat him down and the latter said, "We're going to play you the best song you've ever heard", that song being "Let It Be".

Calling on Paul, the chat show host quoted The Beatles', singing, "I need somebody, not just anybody".

Then they pulled up at the home where he lived during his late teen years, and where he and John Lennon wrote their hit songs.

Sir Paul then took Corden to The Philharmonic pub in Liverpool city centre, where drinkers were treated to a surprise gig.
